Throughout the end of life administration process, it is more important than ever that your customer service is of the highest standard.

EQ can help your business to make the often complicated processes of registering a death and managing a deceased customer’s estate as quick and easy as possible for bereaved families, friends and administrators.

In doing so, we enable your business to build a reputation for being both supportive and sensitive when dealing with consumers at a time when many are at their most vulnerable.

Death Notification Service

EOL13 800X600

The Death Notification Service (DNS) has been created to enable your customers to tell multiple companies that they need to register a death with just a single online notification.

This means that relatives won’t have to speak to multiple companies telling them their extremely difficult and painful news numerous times.

In signing up to the scheme, your company is reducing the emotional and administrative burden on the relatives of your customers as well as your own customer service teams.
This not only improves their experience, but also your reputation.
