The Challenge

Scott Found has owned and operated funeral homes for three decades. MyObits was created in response to what Scott saw as exorbitant obituary prices with very little flexibility in distribution. As a business owner who did not have app development experience or want to build an internal development team, Scott partnered with SPARK to guide him to a successful launch of his digital disruption.

The Solution

SPARK's product team designed and developed MyObits© for web, iOS, and Android. The app empowers consumers to easily create and share online obituaries. Users can also quickly search the custom obituary database and get notified based on relevant results. The platform includes secure mobile payments, integration with a custom admin dashboard, and automated reporting.

“With MyObits, our users are pleased with the easy interface and their experience–its’ simple, yet elegant. We've already seen a return on investment in just a few short months. SPARK took the time (lots of it!) to really understand my vision and put that vision into an actual viable process. Plus, their friendliness, combined with their technical know-how, has made a very foreign process of building an app an enjoyable venture that’s not only profitable but educational.”
