(PRESS RELEASE) LAS VEGAS — Diamond trading network RapNet will launch an upgraded platform Jan. 9, 2018. The upgrade will provide members with a more secure, more intuitive and smarter trading environment. It is the first step in a $5 million Rapaport and RapNet development project intended to revolutionize the electronic market for diamonds.

This first phase upgrade will significantly increase security by providing exclusive communications between RapNet members. New RapNet technology provides an alternative to the use of emails that are often hacked and used to misdirect diamond payments and shipments. With electronic fraud a growing and prevalent threat in the diamond industry, this significant change is essential to ensure RapNet members can trade in a secure and safe environment.

With RapNet members initiating over 1 million trades a year, the new user interface will also enable members to directly negotiate online. Searches will run faster and smarter with more features.

“RapNet is introducing new technology that will provide a safe and secure trading environment for our members. We are investing millions of dollars in new electronic infrastructure that will usher in a new era of diamond trading,” said Saville Stern, chief operating officer of RapNet.

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.”
