With the advent of personal computers, the business world has changed dramatically. Today, investment in information technology at all levels is increasing at explosive rates. As a result, productivity in the workplace has taken quantum leaps forward; record keeping is much more efficient and accurate; and the overall pace of business is faster. From keeping accurate accounting records to sophisticated marketing efforts that attract new customers, computers are making every type of business more productive, more profitable and, most importantly, more competitive. The simple fact that you are reading this on the Internet is a testament to your belief of the sweeping changes that are taking place in the world. Due to fierce competition within the computer hardware industry and advances in information technology, computer hardware pricing has declined substantially, while performance has dramatically increased. As a direct result, computers have become more and more prevalent in every type of workplace. Therefore, no longer will it be possible to survive, much less succeed, by doing things the "old fashion way." Those who choose to ignore technological progress will almost certainly become a victim of it. In this sense, the jewelry business is no different from any other business. The right jewelry business management system - one that automatically tracks inventory and customer activities, prints everything from accounting statements and sales reports to jewelry tags, correlates accounts receivable and payable, creates picture-quality color images of your jewelry, tracks repairs, quickly generates appraisals, provides powerful sales promotion and advertising tools, and much, much more - will help a jeweler increase productivity, efficiency and profits. But what company offers such a system? The result of a jeweler’s vision of the future, Gemological Research Corporation (GRC) was founded in 1982 to adapt computer technology to the unique needs of jewelers. Since then the gemologists, computer experts, business consultants and both retail and manufacturing jewelers who make up GRC have continued their quest to design the ultimate business management system for the jewelry industry. Since 1982, GRC has spent over 34 years, and well in excess of $25 million, developing, testing and perfecting computerized business tools for the jewelry industry.
