User experience workflow for AdPortal Obits

Customer Feedback

Reliable and Easy to Use. We have been using iPublish Media for Obits for the past 5 years and are now up to 77% of all Obits coming through the portal. Notices placed through “eObits” are larger so there has been an increase in revenue and, of course, there is a near zero error factor. The program is reliable. We are very pleased with the results.

AdPortal Obituaries is live in 18 of our markets. BH Media has a very good relationship with iPublish. The team is always very very easy to deal with which gives us a comfort level in their ability to support the launch of new products. I enjoy working with the entire iPublish team. They are always so accommodating.

Terry Hall, BH Media Group

I was absolutely fascinated with how strong Obits are. Making the move to iPublish Media’s AdPortal Obituaries enabled us to re-energize our print obits in a number of different ways. We now offer enhanced obituaries that read more like a story and have more data points to engage the reader which are a big hit in our markets.
