CaratX launches a revolutionary, online and mobile optimized platform for diamond, gemstone and jewelry buyers and sellers during Covid.
Online PR News – 18-September-2020 – San Francisco, CA – CaratX launched in 2020 after recognizing the need for a better e-commerce and m-commerce experience in the B2B and B2C spaces. CaratX offers a unique partner channel that connects buyers and sellers through the CaratX platform, while enabling them to do Business through complete, end-to-end e-commerce and m-commerce. Their mission, as stated on the website is: Our mission is to connect the Diamond industry on a single platform. To provide retailers, wholesalers, dealers, brokers and independents a place to buy and sell to customers.
Why did they do it? We asked the Co-Founders, Keith Hawkins and Josh Burwick. "When I saw the path the diamond, gemstone and Jewelry industry was headed pre-Covid, I knew there was a much needed e-commerce overhaul that needed to take place, so we built it.", said Keith Hawkins Co-Founder & President of CaratX.
Josh Burwick, Co-Founder and CEO weighed in as well. "Businesses need tangible solutions now more than ever. We can't keep doing the same thing over and over, then expect things to change in our favor. The industry needs help and technology can facilitate that objective. The fees, the lack of transparency, the waiting for a seller to respond, the lists upon lists that you have to sift through, and the lack of trust. It's time for a change. Businesses of all kinds in the diamond/jewelry space are being strangled by all the red tape. Now is the time to make things easier not harder, especially during Covid-19. That's why we're doing this. That's the problem we want to solve".
