Our Process

Enable Cross-Departmental
Visibility and Safe Access

Ensure all team members (no matter where they are) can safely access licensing information and documents. We use the latest MS SQL database and front-end software tools to protect users so you can work with any client’s financial software system without fear. All content rights management data and financial information is encrypted and hosted on MS Azure secure services

Receipts
Reconciliation

Generate vouchers for each payee over a distinct threshold (i.e. over $15). Even if you have dozens upon dozens of payees to keep track of, our database calculates royalty payments and sends statements when thresholds are not met. Payments are processed only when the royalty minimum is reached.

Expenses
Deductions

Automatically import expenses from your accounting system by category. Apply them against royalty statements to licensors to accurately recoup allowable fees, including – recording costs, video production costs, tour support, marketing fees, deductions to songwriters, and payments to influencers/producers. Your contract terms define the allowable expenses by category – as well as the percentage recouped or deducted.

Support Varying
Rate Structures

Manage different rate structures from publisher to publisher – including Fixed Unit, Percent of Retail, Percent of Wholesale, Net Income, Gross Profit, Net Profit, Fixed Fee, Minimum Statutory (MS), Statutory Rate (SS), and no royalty. Prorate all your media and music royalties rates by the percentage share of product. Deduction rules allow you to place various conditions on each statement, as well as set up rate triggers based on sales units, amount levels, or recoupment position. This allows you to modify base royalties to handle rate or unit sales escalations. Accommodate unit price sliding rates, wholesale sliding rates, and SRP sliding rates based on the volume price of sales transactions.

Easy Participations
Processing

Split out multiple payments to different owners on a single product in order to pay music publishers, record labels, co-branding parties, and third-parties. Our system allows you to easily manage payments that may be related to one another (net profit deals, subsidiaries, rights to heirs, etc.) from the original owner. Process royalties on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis period as defined in your contracts.

Efficiently Import
Digital Sales Data

Gather sales data from traditional ERP systems or other data sources, in addition to popular streaming platforms like Amazon, Disney+, Apple iTunes, HBO+, Hulu, Google, Pandora, Sling TV, Spotify, YouTube, Yahoo, etc.

Simple, Straightforward
Compliance
