JBT Debuts New Web site and Services

The Jewelers Board of Trade launched its enhanced member Web site with new online services that provide immediate access to information on the U.S. jewelry industry, JBT said in a statement. 
In addition, the new Web site, for the exclusive use of JBT members, has been redesigned for easier navigation.
 
“This new member Web site is the culmination of several years of technology and services design upgrades that position JBT for the future,” said Dione Kenyon, JBT president. “We know how critical it is in this competitive business environment to have up-to-date information when you need it. That’s why we are now giving our members an expanded capability to tap into JBT’s extensive database on the industry, anywhere, anytime.”
 
To supplement JBT’s current product offering, the site debuts two entirely new features, “JBT Advanced Search” and “JBT Credit Watch.”
 
JBT Advanced Search allows members to search online from more than 70,000 business listings in JBT’s database, in a variety of ways. For example, users can search for and by such information as company principal, key managers, phone number, business classification, and address. In addition, name searches will link to all of the businesses with which an individual is associated. A map link is included with each entry to better identify locations. Once a listing of interest is identified, members can instantly order a JBT credit report online for more detailed credit data and analysis. All JBT members have access to this service as a new benefit of membership.
 
JBT Credit Watch electronically informs members of important changes in their business partners’ credit profiles. Examples include subjects of frequent member inquiries, collections claim activity, ratings changes, and other significant credit report updates. Members initiate the service themselves on-line by identifying companies they wish to track, be they customers, prospects, or vendors.  The service is FREE to JBT Interchange Members, and priced at an annual subscription fee to the balance of JBT members.
