Truphone keeps Gassan Diamonds connected anywhere in the world

"With Truphone’s service, I can work all around the globe and it feels as though I’m in my own home."

David Bijlsma, CCO, Gassan Diamonds

Gassan Diamonds is an Amsterdam-based diamond dealer, with stores located all around the globe. The business was founded by Samuel Gassan in November 1945—straight after the Second World War. Today, Gassan Diamonds receives around 400,000 people in its diamond factory every year.

Diamonds have a global appeal. Each stone is unique and different from any other in the world, which means that Gassan Diamonds is having to travel around the world all year long to keep on top of emerging trends and source the best products.

Gassan Diamonds’ clientele is equally global. A local client may be inspired by a piece in Los Angeles and send a picture to the dealer. By the time they arrive back in Amsterdam, the product is already made and ready for collection. This level of efficiency is crucial for the business.

That’s where Truphone comes in.

Truphone’s seamless global mobile plan has allowed Gassan Diamonds to reduce its annual cost by 25%. The team is also able to work anywhere in the world, as though they are in their hometown. If a team member is in Singapore, for instance, they can immediately start working on emails and responding to clients from the moment they step off the plane. No waiting to reach the hotel, no frustrating slow Wi-Fi connections—just on-the-go connectivity when they need it.
