The EDGE® adds profit center for independent retail jewelers

Software company looks for ways to increase a retailer’s bottom line

Edge(SHELTON, Conn.) - Abbott Jewelry Systems, creator of The Edge retail jewelry management system, has added jewelry care protection plans to their software, providing independent retail jewelers the same sales advantage as the majors. Independent jewelers can now offer jewelry care protection plans for their customers’ peace of mind, in addition to helping them close sales at the counter. The plans offered are available through industry insurance leader JM Care Plan™, a member of the Jewelers Mutual Group, and IJB/Wexler/Montage Group.

“The major jewelry chains have long offered jewelry care protection plans not only as an added revenue stream, but also as an advantage over the independent jeweler,” stated Dick Abbott, CEO of Abbott Jewelry Systems. “It’s high time independents level the playing field.”  

Jewelry sales, jewelry care income, and financing are three important profit centers for chain jewelry stores. Abbott Jewelry Systems has been looking for innovative ways to help their customers beyond the scope of traditional jewelry software. “We’re committed to providing the independent jeweler with the features and functionality which enable them to compete and win in an ever-evolving retail environment,” Abbott added.
