(PRESS RELEASE) EVANSTON IL — Insurtech innovator BriteCo jewelry insurance announced a partnership with Lightspeed (NYSE:LSPD) (TSX: LSPD), a leading provider of cloud-based, omnichannel commerce platforms. BriteCo’s free, automated appraisal system integrates with Lightspeed allowing retail jewelers to save time and generate income in conducting and managing appraisals. Once an appraisal is finalized, retail jeweler customers receive a no obligation insurance quote directly from BriteCo that enables them to get their purchase covered in under five minutes.

“A recent Jewelers Going Digital survey report showed that jewelers are eager for solutions to help them manage the digital transformation of their businesses,” said Dustin Lemick, founder and CEO of BriteCo. “Our partnership with Lightspeed is a perfect example of two innovators joining forces to leverage cloud-based retail technology that jewelers and their customers can use to make their lives easier, more productive and more affordable.”

Lightspeed jewelry retailers can access the BriteCo appraisal system right from the Lightspeed dashboard. Utilizing a database of more than 200,000 price points, jewelers can complete appraisals in as little as five minutes, making their final value determination with software guidance.

“Our research shows that more than one of three jewelers are still using outdated manual paper or word document systems to perform appraisals,” noted Lemick. “To compete effectively and deliver superior customer service, retail jewelers want technology that is fast, easy and a clear benefit to their customers. Best of all, our appraisal system is free!”

For retail jeweler customers looking to insure their purchases such as an engagement ring or wedding band, BriteCo gives a fast, easy and affordable way to get an instant quote for replacement jewelry insurance in 60 seconds from their smartphone.

“The BriteCo jewelry appraisal system integration and instant insurance offering is another way Lightspeed is empowering retail jewelers to grow their business with optimized technology,” said Lightspeed VP of Partnerships, Peter Dougherty. “We welcome the passion and commitment of partners like BriteCo that consistently add value to our retail jewelry platform.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
