Gemworld Launches Online Training for its Appraisal Software

Gemworld International, Inc., producers of the GemGuide and GemGuide Appraisal Software, has launched a new technology-driven method of demonstrating and training its software.

Jewelers and appraisers interested in seeing how the GemGuide Appraisal Software works can log in through the Internet and watch a live interactive demonstration. They can verbally ask questions during the demonstration and see the results onscreen. The same technology is now being used to train new users in one-on-one and group sessions.

“This new technology is exciting for us to have since after all, we are selling a technology product,” said Richard Drucker, president of Glenview, Ill.-based organization. “In the past we would send interested people a demonstration CD and we also had a training CD. Now, we are live. What could be better?”

Prospective users and current users can go to Gemworld Web site to sign up for a demo or training session. A current schedule of dates and times are listed. Upcoming demonstration dates are July 2, July 9, July 16, and July 25, all at 3:00 p.m. (CST).

The GemGuide Appraisal Software has been owned and developed by Gemworld International, Inc. since 2002. Nearly 1,000 appraisers now use this software. The software is the fastest of its kind and is fully integrated with diamond and gem pricing. The software has an initial setup fee of $295, which includes training and the first 100 uses of the software. Users pay only a small fee (less than $1.00) for each appraisal item that they do. All upgrades and technical support are free.
