GSI Expands Services Ahead of the Holiday Rush
The lab’s new Assurance program offers an e-commerce fulfillment program and a drop-ship service.
The gemological lab launched Assurance by GSI, a multi-service solution that includes an e-commerce fulfillment program, drop-ship service to consumers, and provides quality control for all new merchandise.
The lab is looking to be a one-stop shop for retailers and their customers, and help solve pandemic-related logistical issues.
“As a result of the increase in jewelry sales and a shortage of labor, retailers are faced with bottlenecks in their quality control departments for new incoming merchandise from their suppliers,” said GSI in a press release about the program’s launch.
The new services aim to help jewelers thoroughly vet their merchandise and get the jewelry shipped out quickly.
Through Assurance, items are submitted directly from the jewelry manufacturer to GSI, where the lab can get to work inspecting the jewels.
Then, using the retailer’s preferred packaging, the lab will ship the order directly to the customer, retail distribution centers, or store locations.
“Adapting our service offerings to now include a quality control and drop-ship service helps the retailers to protect their prestigious reputations,” said GSI President Debbie Azar.
“It also increases customer satisfaction with quicker, more efficient delivery, and it will ultimately enhance consumer confidence because every order is fully screened for both quality and accuracy before being shipped.”
The service is currently available in the United States, with plans to expand into international markets by early next year.
Those interested in the program can reach out to GSI or send an email to email@example.com.
