Instappraise to offer educational jewelry appraisal software through new partnership with George Brown College

Calgary, Alberta: Makers of the ultimate productivity tool for jewelry appraisers and retailers, Instappraise is proud to announce a new partnership with George Brown College for its jewellery and gemmology programs.

The jewellery and gemmology programs at George Brown represent one of North America's largest and best-equipped jewellery schools, offering the only full-time gemmology certificate program in Ontario. The expert faculty members teach students hands-on skills while they work with precious metals and gems in a state-of-the-art environment.

Through this partnership, the college will be offering Instappraise's cutting-edge and easy-to-use jewelry appraisal creation and management solution to all current students and recent graduates, free of charge.

Additionally, graduates of the Jewelry and Gemology Programs will benefit from a free 1-year subscription to the Instappraise platform, post-graduation, completely free-of-charge, to help kickstart their career in the jewelry and gemology industry.

This is an awesome tool for our students to learn and use. Instappraise prepares them for the future of client quotes and appraisals. The cloud-based platform makes it so simple to use and it’s fast, professional and slick. It’s like Silicon Valley has come to the traditional jewellery store! With Instappraise I feel confident that our students are prepared for the future of the retail jewellery industry.
