CIBJO Im­proves Web­site Func­tion­al­ity

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

CIBJO, the World Jew­ellery Con­fed­er­a­tion, has launched a new main web­site. Lo­cated at www.cibjo.org, it rep­re­sents a tech­no­log­i­cal up­grade from its pre­de­ces­sor, pro­vid­ing users with more in­for­ma­tion about the or­gan­i­sa­tion and the jew­ellery sec­tor, as well as im­proved func­tion­al­ity.

The launch of the web­site is the first stage of a three-part up­grade of CIBJO’s on­line pres­ence, which will be rolled out over the com­ing few weeks. It will be fol­lowed by the in­au­gu­ra­tion of a mem­bers-only mod­ule, called “MY CIBJO,” which will pro­vide on­line ser­vices for mem­bers of the or­gan­i­sa­tion and its var­i­ous pro­fes­sional com­mit­tees, called com­mis­sions, and then by the re­lease of a CIBJO app for mo­bile phones and tablet com­put­ers.

“For CIBJO, the web­site is our pri­mary medium for pre­sent­ing our or­gan­i­sa­tion and the work that we do on be­half of the jew­ellery and gem­stone sec­tors, as well as for achiev­ing con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween our mem­ber or­gan­i­sa­tions, of­fice hold­ers and con­stituents,” ex­plained Gae­tano Cava­lieri, CIBJO’s pres­i­dent. “We have had an on­line pres­ence for more than a decade and have ex­panded and evolved it as the tech­nol­ogy has im­proved. But we now felt it was time for a fun­da­men­tal over­haul, in­volv­ing more than just an oil change, but rather a re­place­ment of both the en­gine and the op­er­at­ing sys­tem.”

The newly launched web­site is de­signed so that it can be grown or­gan­i­cally, adding an ever-in­creas­ing amount of in­for­ma­tion about CIBJO and the is­sues fac­ing the in­ter­na­tional jew­ellery and gem­stone sec­tor. It also will serve as a plat­form upon which CIBJO is able to de­liver its tools and ser­vices for the in­dus­try, in­clud­ing its Blue Books of in­dus­try stan­dards and nomen­cla­ture for the di­a­mond, coloured gem­stone, pearl, co­ral and pre­cious met­als sec­tors, and also gem­mo­log­i­cal lab­o­ra­to­ries. For nonCIBJO mem­bers, some of these are avail­able at a nom­i­nal fee, payable via the web­site.
