Bristol Funeral Directors Visit Lodge Brothers

Bristol Funeral Directors were part of the original user involvement group set up to help develop the Eulogica funeral software for the UK market. Over the years they have had their Eulogica funeral software tailored further to suit their needs. However, the software was only ever installed at their head office in Bristol. As the number of branches has increased over the last few years they have been looking at rolling out Eulogica to all their outlying branches. To give them an idea of how this has worked in practice, Eulogica's David Wright suggested that they visit Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors to find out their experience of rolling out Eulogica to 40 branches.
