SPONSORED CONTENT Need a Boost? See How the Zing™ platform Can Maximize Your Business A search for a diamond here. An appraisal for a customer there. Some shipments that need to be made in between. Feeling overwhelmed yet? Don’t worry – you’re not alone. Jewelers Mutual Group has heard the same feedback from jewelers of all shapes and sizes. After realizing there wasn’t a solution to bring the industry’s service providers together, they embarked on an ambitious venture — building a digital experience to help jewelers thrive. The Zing™ platform takes Jewelers Mutual®’s core products and services – think business insurance, the JM Shipping Solution™ tool, and JM Care Plan™ products — and ties them in with leaders in other areas. The first two featured are a Diamond Marketplace powered by the International Diamond Exchange (IDEX) and a retail insurance appraisal tool that leverages the expertise of Gemworld. IDEX’s Guaranteed Diamond Transactions™ service will allow suppliers to share their inventory, including specifications, grading, and pricing information, so that all jewelers have transparent access to inventory and pricing around the globe. This video provides a quick glimpse of how the Diamond Marketplace works. It also shares why it’s a critical component in unleashing the power of every jewelry business by harnessing the power of the industry. Gemworld’s pricing expertise is also put in your hands and gives you the ability to quickly calculate the retail value of an item based on your inputs. Diamond and colored gemstones wholesale pricing modules along with an estimated replacement value are accessible too. Richard Drucker, President and Founder of Gemworld International, and David McDonald, Senior Director of Product Management at Jewelers Mutual Group, recently discussed their collaboration at INSTORE’s Online Jewelry Week. They showed how simple and effective the new tool is and explained why it becomes even more valuable when combined with all of the other features the Zing platform offers.
