About 1Director

Our story and the future of the funeral workspace.

Why we exist

You probably have fifteen tabs open: one for email, one for Dropbox, one for Microsoft Word, and on, and on…We duct-tape everything together with emails, copy/paste, and countless open tabs.

That's where 1Director comes in.

We want to break away from disconnected platforms and outdated funeral software you may use.

As a first step, we are blending much of your workflow into an all-in-one workspace. Want a task list? Plan funeral arrangements? Create a memorial video or stationery? They are now all in one customizable place. Solve your problems the way you've always wanted, and not by others.

Challenging the status quo is not an easy task. Check out 1Director! We need early adopters like you to start a movement.

Our values

Users first

We do our best to learn from funeral directors and families by put ourselves in their shoes.

Commit to quality

For everything we do, we aim for the best — we don't believe in ”good enough”.

Be kind and inclusive

We treat others like we would want to be treated, with kindness and inclusion.

Our story

Much like the funeral homes we serve, we are a family owned and operated business.

In the face of planning a loved one's funeral with family spread across the U.S., complexities arose. Coordinating arrangements across distances proved challenging. This experience spurred the creation of 1Director — a case management software designed to simplify the process.

Recognizing the difficulties faced by both families and Funeral Directors, 1Director serves as a unifying platform, bridging geographical gaps and facilitating seamless collaboration.

Our goal is to bring clarity and ease to the funeral planning process, ensuring a collective and supportive effort in honoring the memory of loved ones, irrespective of physical distance.

“We're all about making tough times a little easier — because remembering should be about love, not logistics.”
