What Is the Future of Live Streaming?

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, most funeral homes adopted "temporary" technology solutions to pivot their operations and creatively solve for new challenges. For many, this included the ability to offer families a live streaming solution. Now, as we begin to realize a new normal many funeral home owners and funeral directors are left wondering what the future holds for live streaming. 

What is the future of live streaming? 

Although we might not have a crystal ball, a permanent shift in post-pandemic consumer behavior means many funeral homes can now expect live streaming to be a trend that isn't going anywhere. To accommodate this permanent shift many funeral homes are already making investments to match these new digital expectations. 

With Gather, funeral homes are implementing new technology to help them not only improve the experience for their families but grow their business and increase revenue. In fact, Gather Memories, LiveStream & Recording customers that offer live streaming as part of their GPL recover the cost of onboarding after as few as 9 streams* and see a return on investment with as few as 2 streams per month*.
