Preview:   Royalty Producer X

the royalty system for the rest of us

20 years of expertise leave their marks

YearsGoBy
As a company, OFFICER solutions has a strong record for deploying specialized systems for independent record labels. In recent years, more and more companies from other industries bought our legacy Royalty Producer software. While being focussed on the music industry, the software still was the best they could get for their needs and money. With Royalty Producer X, we introduce a royalty system that can handle any licensable asset, across multiple industries. As soon as income for intellectual property has to be shared with licensors, Royalty Producer X comes into play.

Royalty Producer is under development since 18 months and scheduled for release in spring 2017.
The software is based on the latest FileMaker 15 platform and runs on:
  macOS 10.10-10.12
  Windows 7-10.

A modern royalty system for any intellectual property

WIth Royalty Producer X, all different asset types can be sold individually and independently (e.g. a recording, a photo) or as part of a bundle (e.g. album, photo gallery). Users can even mix different asset types in one bundle: 10 recordings & one movie). They have full freedom to build contract structures that reflect their own way of monetizing their various assets. Royalty Producer X paves the way for a digital media world, where the limits of product formats and delivery methods are reinvented very frequently.

Asset Types

Royalty Producer X can handle the following asset types, separately. From a royalty (contract) perspective, each asset type has its own rules.

Bundle Any Asset

In Royalty Producer X the user can define any necessary bundle type. Basically, bundles are a list of assets. Assets can be mixed and matched at will. Here are some example of typical and very special bundles:

    Album (recordings only)
A typical album, based on tracks of one single artist

   Compilation (recordings only)
A compilation has a playlist of tracks from different artists.

   Cue Sheet (publishing only)
A list of publishing works (songs), played during an event or another performance.

   Album with music video (recordings and video)
An album with a track playlist of recordings and a extra music video.

   Album + Book (recordings and book)
A special edition bundle of an artist, containing the album cd and his biography book.

   Multimedia Album App
An app based on pictures, stories and recordings of an artist. The income should be split between the app developer and recording artist.

   Album with extra cover artwork
An artist album where the designer of the cover artwork is paid an extra share for his contribution.

Powerful Contract Engine

The contract engine supports plenty of royalty rules that can be applied to every asset and its usage. A rule is based on any combination of the following variables:
• Asset Type
• Bundle Type
• Territory
• Channel
• Sales Type

More features:
• Sliding Shares
• Cross-Colateralization
• Profit Splits
• Investment Deals
• Recurring Billing per bundle/asset

Multiple Contracts Per Asset

An asset can be connected to an unlimited number of contracts and licensors.

Each contract's share on the asset can be controlled. Ideally suited for multiple versions of a track with different remixers.

A central file repository can hold an media file, related to the asset, e.g. an MP3, an image or a PDF.

Assets can have multiple (analog) reference numbers, depending on the reporting channel.

Full Automation

Starting a statement run in Royalty Producer X is a very simple process. The system will not only calculate all statements, but also prepares all necessary files (CSV, Excel, PDF) to be sent to the licensors.

For maximum comfort, the software can even create and send emails to each party, with all connected files attached.

International

Royalty Producer X can ingest sales and issue royalty statements in any currency.

User's can choose one of two languages for royalty statements: either English or their national language. Each word that is used on the statements can be adapted individually in the system's preferences.

Client/Server Ready

Royalty Producer X does a great job on royalty processing when running as a desktop app.

But some companies may need all the power they can get. Royalty Producer X can be deployed as a Client/Server system, where all the raw work is done by a powerful server computer, taking away the load from the user's computer.

By using Amazon Web Services, the server system can even run in the cloud, with scalable RAM and processing power, eliminating the costs of a dedicated server. The AWS server even allows a company structure that is scattered all over the globe, where coworkers can use the system at any time and any place.

Recent News

We lost our beloved friend and partner Stefan Fuchs in August 2016. Stefan was responsible for our support and took care of the many small companies that have founded our business. Consequently, Fox is meant to be a clever companion for modern, digital native companies with straight workflows and royalty scenarios. The application name was chosen in memory of our Mr. Fuchs (German for fox).

Our new flagship product Royalty Producer X is in development and will be released in spring 2017. Royalty Producer X covers even complex contract scenarios and will also be available as a client/server system.
