The eXtra4<gemID> software is developed in cooperation with experts from the German gemstone center Idar-Oberstein. It is oriented towards the needs of companies with a traditional structure and masters high-quality unique stones as well as industrial stones. Since the complexity of the branch requires more than pure administrative functions, eXtra4<gemID>
also supports the processes and operations typical for gemstones, but has no accounting functions.
As an industry software, eXtra4<gemID> is a supplement and not a replacement for an stock management system. Commercial enterprise resource planning system (ERP) is designed for mapping commercial business transactions. For the entire monetary transactions, such as cash register, invoices, reminders, incoming payments, etc., eXtra4<gemID> is not the appropriate tool. eXtra4<gemID> provides the stock management system with the appropriate data to process transactions in compliance with the law.
The management of gems with eXtra4<gemID> is based on a powerful database. PostgreSQL is used in single-user or multi-user version.
As software, eXtra4<gemID>has a modular structure. The gem management with its basic functions - classification, labeling, search, list creation and inventory - forms the software core. All editions contain this central module in the same form.
Furthermore, eXtra4<gemID> has numerous additional functions. They are bundled with their possibilities in 5 editions and build on each other.
The 5 software editions include an appropriate support contingent with the purchase and are priced staggered according to the respective performance volume
The modularity allows users to start at an individually suitable level - from beginner to expert. Upgrades from one edition to the next gradually open up a higher functional level as required.
Gemstone management with eXtra4<gemID> accompanies users in their development and leads step by step to a more structured organization.

The SQL database integrated in eXtra4<gemID> makes a corresponding server necessary. The integration of the application into the IT and the on-site processes requires corresponding specialist expertise.
Therefore, eXtra4 principally takes over the complete installation of eXtra4<gemID> and hands over a ready-to-use system to the user. For this purpose, the purchase price of all editions already includes an appropriate support contingent.
In daily practice, the user is supported by the help function of the software itself. The help also explains the operation of all features that eXtra4<gemID> offers beyond the core function in the software editions.
Those who need additional support have the possibility to access the know-how of the eXtra4 software team at any time via eXtra4's Support Ticket-System.

Users can enter their own data into the cloud-based test system and gain experience with the gemstone management eXtra4<gemID> under daily conditions. They are thus able to get a personal impression in order to make well-founded decisions.
Functions with cloud support for the software itself are planned in the long term.

The software eXtra4<gemID> is subject to a continuous improvement process. Impulses for this come from two sides: The software has to reflect the technological progress on the IT sector. At the same time, it is necessary to track industry-related changes in production and marketing of gemstones. In order to fulfill this, updates are frequently available for eXtra4<gemID>.
For software updates users have two options:
- Permanent update - annual subscription:
The software version is permanently kept at the latest state of development with updates. A user can immediately benefit from innovations. The annual subscription fee is 30% of the license price and when purchasing a user license it is included in the price for one year from the date of purchase .
- On-demand update - user triggerd:
The on-demand update is useful where the application initially works to the user's satisfaction and fully performs all required functions. There is no automatic update caused by innovations in the software. The application remains constant in its possibilities over a longer period. Only possible errors occurring in this phase are eliminated free of charge by bugfix updates.
Only when new requirements arise the on-demand-update provides the user with access to software progress that cover the new demands. On-demand updates include an appropriate support contingent in the price and can be purchased at 66% of this edition's license price.
