Instappraise Announces Integration with GCAL Database
The partnership reduces the amount of data entry required on appraisal documents, Instappraise said.
Instappraise is collaborating with the Gem Certification & Assurance Lab (GCAL) to integrate its platform with GCAL’s Diamond Grading Certificate Database.
This integration allows users to search for any GCAL certificate number and immediately gain access to all the pertinent information from the lab’s proprietary database. They can then confirm that an item matches the information on the GCAL certificate and easily add that information to the appraisal.
It is a solution that “minimizes clicks and greatly reduces the amount of data entry required on the appraisal document,” Instappraise said in a press release announcing the partnership.
The partnership with Instappraise is one in a line of announcements from GCAL in 2021.
The lab introduced its new cut grade standard, 8X, this past spring and announced over the summer that it has earned SCS accreditation for its capabilities with gem traceability.
Commenting on the most recent announcement, the partnership with Instappraise, GCAL Chief Operating Officer Angelo Palmieri said: “Both our companies are focused on providing the industry and consumers with an efficient digital experience.
“And because GCAL is renowned the world over for our grading accuracy, consistency and ethics, as well as being the only gem lab in the world to stand behind our grading with a zero-tolerance consumer guarantee, the fit is truly synergistic.”
