Our Bureau Kochi | Updated on March 25, 2013 Published on March 25, 2013

Muthoot Fincorp has launched — My Jewel Box — an android-based mobile application that enables gold consumers to consolidate jewellery assets virtually at one place.

It also helps consumers, a majority of them being women, to evaluate the current value of gold within few seconds.

According to Thomas George Muthoot, Director - Muthoot Pappachan Group, My Jewel Box is a part of the company’s endeavour to offer innovative products and services using new age technology.

The app is a very innovative and a tech-savvy option to store gold jewellery on a virtual platform, and enable customers to assess the value of their jewellery at fingertips. The initial response has been encouraging and the company would be releasing an iOS version soon, he added.

The mobile application’s user friendly interface helps in easily evaluating the current value of gold jewellery by mentioning the total weight of the gold and per gram rate at which it was purchased.

The application immediately calculates the net value of the gold as per the current rate and provides quick information on the eligibility for gold loan.

The data stored is secure as the user’s jewellery is stored only on the user’s phone. The mobile application also allows gold consumers to click pictures of their jewellery and categorise it in segments such as bangles, necklaces, rings etc.

Consumers can download the application on Google Play or give a missed call on 0484 4074668 to get the download link.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
