Andover, Massachusetts, June 27, 2013 – Bluefin Technology Partners, a leading provider of digital classifieds and self-service advertising solutions for the publishing industry, announces that it is now live with its Self-Service Obituary Placement Solution for print and online publishing at a leading daily newspaper in eastern Pennsylvania.


Created with input from funeral directors and the publisher, Bluefin's solution gives funeral directors more control of the obituary submission process.


“Already a client of our classified place ad solution, the publisher asked us to build a self-service obituary application for a more streamlined approach to placing obituary listings that would enhance the relationship between the newspaper and their funeral director clients”, said Rich Grover, General Partner for Technology and founder of Bluefin Technology Partners.


Privately branded to the newspaper, Bluefin's Self-Service Obituary Placement Solution benefits funeral directors by giving them 24/7 access for doing business.
