Ionic Services, Inc.

Ionic is a unique service company dedicated to creating a comprehensive set of services that will help you manage your business. We looked at the funeral home industry and saw that funeral directors, administrative staff, managers and owners were spending a significant amount of time producing forms, processing paperwork, dealing with accounting, payroll, health insurance, and a number of other administrative duties. All these functions are critical to the running of a business, but take time away from working with the community and the families each funeral home strives to serve. Essentially, the needs of the business are taking away from the needs of the families.

We are the only company that provides a complete suite of information technology and accounting services to funeral homes and cemeteries. We are focused solely on servicing the death care industry. Many of the services we provide are not by themselves unique. However, we combine these services and tailor them for your industry and, as a result, create a complete solution that meets your every need.
