Funeral homes go digital via Onora app


MORE than 500 funeral services homes nationwide have joined the funeral mobile application Onora to offer their products and services.

Onora, which is now available on Google Play Store, brings the funeral service industry online, company officials said at an online briefing on Wednesday.

The funeral application allows users to search, book, and pay for funeral services.

“Aside from the obvious practical advantages Onora’s technology provides by making planning easier, lifting the mental load allows mourners time to grieve,” Onora Founder Benjamin E. Dychangco said.

“Onora means honor in the Gaelic language, and we believe that to honor a loved one should be the only thing that you focus on during this trying time. With Onora, we hope to make the grieving process just a little bit easier,” he added.

Onora said more than 2,000 services are available on the application, including burial, cremation, catering, flowers, obituaries, and photographers.

“Onora has over 500 funeral services homes nationwide that people can choose from,” it also said. — Arjay L. Balinbin
