Families don’t have to be in the same town to begin planning. With the Planning Center, they can start planning from any location, on any internet connected device.

Once the family receives the text or email invitation, they'll be prompted to create an account. Families will be able to use the Planning Center on their phone, laptop, or tablet.

Collect important information

The family can collect and fill out basic information for their loved one before or after you meet. Any information the family shares will populate in the decedent's case in Passare.

Have the family enter biographical information before you meet to save time on paperwork, allowing more time to focus on planning a meaningful service.

Biographical information page

Forward arrow  Obituary

The Planning Center allows you to collaborate on the obituary so you can make sure nothing gets missed!

Write the obituary in the decedent's case in Passare and have the family Approve your progress or have the family use a template to get started. You can take what they write and finish it in Passare.

Either way the family will feel involved during the entire planning process.
