Instappraise Announces New Diamond Grading Certificate Database Integration with GCAL

New collaboration between the companies integrates the GCAL Diamond Grading Certificate Database into Instappraise’s jewelry appraisal platform

Calgary, Alberta: Fast-growing technology startup Instappraise – developer of the innovative and easy-to-use jewelry appraisal creation and management solution – is pleased to announce a new partnership with GCAL (Gem Certification & Assurance Lab). Thanks to this latest collaboration, the platform now seamlessly integrates with GCAL’s Diamond Grading Certificate Database. Jewelry professionals who work with GCAL already know the organization for its well-regarded reputation within the appraisal and retail jewelry space. As part of its comprehensive roster of services, GCAL issues diamond Grading Certificates, guaranteeing its 4C’s grading in writing. Instappraise aligns with GCAL’s values of uncompromising integrity and unparalleled customer care.

Now, the power of GCAL’s Diamond Grading Certificate Database is directly integrated into the jewelry appraisal creation process, allowing the user to search for any GCAL Certificate number and immediately gain access to all pertinent information from GCAL’s proprietary database. Best of all, Instappraise makes this step a seamless part of the appraisal creation workflow through automation. With this powerful new integration, jewelry professionals can confirm that an item matches the information from its GCAL Certificate and then easily add that information to the appraisal. This solution minimizes clicks and greatly reduces the amount of data entry required on the appraisal document.

Don Palmieri, GCAL Founder and President says:
