This is Thanksgiving Week and the official start to the holiday season.. Black Friday
and Cyber Monday will be here soon enough.  While many retailers are gearing
up for the holiday blitz, some vendors are nearing the end of their special order
cycle and are already making plans for a new website for next year.  We invite
all suppliers of jewelry, watches and diamonds to give us a call to learn about
our JewelCloud virtual inventory program which can be integrated into their own
website.  Suppliers can now auto upload their own inventory to the JewelCloud
and from one management panel control its distribution to their own website and
also to the websites of their authorized retailers.

Give us a call at 800-373-4373 to learn more about our JewelCloud
Supplier program.
