A great deal of effort has gone into making the WinJewel program easy to use. At the same time the completeness of the program in running a jewelry business has not been compromised. If you can think of any function that is performed or needed in a jewelry business - it probably is included in WinJewel.
WinJewel is currently running in more than 1200 jewelry businesses worldwide. Some with only 1 computer all the way to one store with 34 computers using the WinJewel "Multi-user" version. Many small chains of jewelry stores use the "Multi-store" version of WinJewel that allows up to 99 branch stores to update each other's sales and inventory information daily. WinJewel can use the internet (If you have a fast connection) to have all stores in the chain reacting live and in real-time with the main office or store.
WinJewel Software is now over 32 years old but it continues to progress and is now compatable with all versions of Windows including Windows 8 .
