cemetery management

Ramaker’s Cemetery Information Management System (CIMS) is designed to meet the challenges today’s cemeterians face. From municipal cemeteries to those run by religious organizations, independents, and corporations, over 1,000 cemeteries across the US and abroad have chosen CIMS as their cemetery management solution.

Whether you’re hoping to move paper records online or take advantage of our industry-leading mapping technique, we’ve created three distinct offerings for differently sized cemeteries with different budgetary constraints: CIMS Light, CIMS Gold, and CIMS Platinum.

CIMS Light is an easy-to-use database that helps cemeterians track ownership, interment, and marker information.

CIMS Gold combines the database functionality of CIMS Light with user-generated mapping capabilities. With CIMS Gold, cemeterians can mark grave locations with icons and edit entries to match their cemetery records.

CIMS Platinum, Ramaker’s flagship cemetery management solution, features the best mapping technology in the industry. With CIMS Platinum, users can transform old records into robust digital maps that provide real-time insights into what’s sold, what’s available, and where every burial is located.
