TORONTO and HALIFAX, March 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Flexiti Financial ("Flexiti" or "the Company"), a leading provider of point-of-sale consumer financing solutions for retailers announced today that Charm Diamond Centres and its sister retail chains, Ben Moss Jewellers and Crescent Gold & Diamonds, have signed a long-term agreement to implement its platform.

"Providing excellent customer service and the best price is key to winning customers for life. Integrating Flexiti's innovative consumer financing platform helps us deliver our luxury products with affordable payment options for all budget sizes," said Troy Calder, President of Charm Diamond Centres.
With Flexiti's mobile, automated and 100% paperless application process, customers can now secure in minutes a private label credit card that provides them with low interest and longer-term payment plans than traditional credit cards.
