Moreover, in the United States IDI introduced a 24/7 toll-free number, 1-888-42-WORKS, for ongoing and new clients to reach out with their immediate diamond needs. These are uploaded in real time to IDI's online portal and all Israeli diamond companies will receive text messages updating them on the new demands. IDI also launched "CALL ASIA", a unique call centre that initiates direct contact with a massive database of Asian B2B diamond buyers every week to ask for their specific diamond needs.
