Ferncliff Cemetery

Ferncliff Cemetery

" Ferncliff management expended considerable time and energy deciding whom it would entrust with the critical and difficult task of converting its record keeping from a fragmented paper system to an integrated digitized one. After conducting a two year review of virtually every integrated cemetery software system on the market, Ferncliff narrowed its choices to Axiom’s Charon Cemetery Management Suite"

“In our search for a solution to meet our needs, there was only one system amongst hundreds, CHARON, that provided a completely integrated data management, mapping, and accounting system. While the support provided appears to be that or a large multinational company, Axiom also provides the very personal touch of a family owned business.”

GIS Cemetery Mapping

Axiom’s mapping solutions use state of the art technology, and the most accurate Geographical Information System (GIS) on the international market, identifying the precise location of each and every grave-site, niche or memorial space in each cemetery location. Axiom Mapping is a fully integrated mapping program that is managed through the Axiom Cemetery Management Suite. It will also accommodate the capacity to search for cemetery map locations either through the cemetery’s website and/or through our Touchscreen Kiosk system strategically located within the cemetery grounds. Furthermore, it provides the ability to print a cemetery location map (either at the cemetery kiosk or over the web from the families’ home). It also specifies the surrounding site names, so that even if the site does not have a marker or memorial, the grave can be located by referencing the names close to the location of the deceased.

Other features of Axiom Mapping include the ability to apply an exact distance measurement between graves, roads and footpaths to plan for expansion and capacity within the cemetery. This can be further extrapolated to be a valuable tool in the management and placement of utilities throughout the grounds. A key operational function for any cemetery is to be able to manage the inventory of available spaces for sale. Axiom Mapping allows you to view color coded maps of graves, niches, and crypts that are occupied, reserved or sold. This can be accessed on a mobile device, like a tablet, giving a truly dynamic tool for any cemetery salesperson to use in their day to day work with families.

A key feature of Axiom Mapping is its ability to overlay thematic maps that starts at the cemetery overview level and allows you to drill-down to the site level. This provides management with the visual ability to assess cemetery utilization. Optimizing the tight integration between the cemetery records and sales module with the cemetery maps, inventory is immediately updated at the time of every transaction, providing accurate sales inventory to cemetery staff while serving their client families. Customer service is further enhanced by providing printable cemetery maps, with the position and exact location of burials, service details and information regarding surrounding sites presented all on one page. With Axiom’s cemetery mapping solution, there are no delays, no redundancy and complete accuracy.

The Axiom Mapping module uses MapInfo, a multi-layered GIS mapping facility, to provide the following:

  • Map the entire cemetery, showing all relevant geographical information
  • Show spatial images associated with a site (e.g. memorials, pictures, inscriptions)
  • Integrates database records with digital representation
  • Used in Axiom’s Touch Screen to provide site specific information to the public
  • Printed maps that identify the exact location of sites within the cemetery
  • Comprehensive land management
  • Site Information of the owner and the interred in each site
  • Inventory management – available sites for sale
  • Capacity planning – capacity, feasibility, maintenance, re-use &redevelopment
  • Simple and accurate measuring tools – for point-to-point, area or perimeter measurements.
  • Store utility maps

Due to the advanced technology base of Axiom Mapping, GIS maps can now be provided on mobile devices.  This functionality puts the entire cemetery’s map on your handheld device and enables your staff to perform searches and view thematic maps without being confined to the office computer.
