Fast and easy access for all people in need of information on royalties, advances and subsidiary rights

The browser-based solution Authors Online offers your employees as well as authors and agencies easy-to-access, intuitive information on royalties, advances and subsidiary rights. In addition, you can create and send out e-statements (electronic royalty statements).

Authors Online runs on Klopotek STREAM, a cloud-centric platform for optimised user interaction on desktop computers and mobile devices.

It is the ideal web app for everyone in publishing who needs direct and fast access to key information (at the office or while travelling, using a smartphone or a tablet), including options for drilling down to view important details, such as distribution channels, areas and royalties rules as well as subsidiary rights earnings and shares.

Using STREAM is fun. In the STREAM world, the user is at the center of everything.

For cooperating with authors …

With Authors Online you can offer your authors an important, additional benefit: more transparency and more detailed royalty information – including a comprehensive history.

The data which they can potentially view include:

  • Advance payments

  • Revenues sorted by type and period

  • Royalties sorted by market

  • Royalties sorted by version

  • Subsidiary rights revenues sorted by type and period

  • View and download royalty statements
     

Authors Online can be integrated in an electronic document creation and dispatch workflow, so that e-statements can be safely viewed in downloaded from the app. Sending out e-statements instead of printed statements saves time, decreases your costs (paper, printing, postage) and is environmentally friendly (resource conservation).

For cooperating with agencies …

Authors Online makes it easier to provide agents with comprehensive information, giving you a competitive edge in rights acquisitions, because agents can quickly and easily access all the information related to their authors.


For your employees …

You can employ Authors Online in the back office as a fast, easy-to-use reporting tool for royalties – either for the royalties department itself, which can access Authors Online directly from contracts in Klopotek PPM (Product Planning and Management system), or for other employees who simply want to get a quick overview of particular authors or titles.

Decision-making processes in your publishing house will be streamlined, because management can evaluate the success of an author – retrospectively or prospectively – at any time without having to request details from the accounting or royalties departments.

Take viewing and managing royalty recipient data to a STREAM app level 

The Royalty Recipient Manager handles all details that are relevant for calculating royalties according to laws and rules of author associations in different countries. Royalty recipients can also be agencies or beneficiaries of an author. When you create a royalty recipient, the conditions for royalty settlement are defined at proprietor or company level.

Working with the app is easy: use the blazing-fast search functionality to look for the royalty recipient you want to manage. Advanced search criteria can include agency, tax number, payment type, among many others.

If there have been changes to the royalty recipient data, for example, a new tax exemption, you simply enter the modified data in the web app and press ‘save’. Changing or adding complex information is straightforward and intuitive. It is possible, for example, to specify that income for a non-resident royalty recipient is taxed at a reduced rate due to a double taxation agreement.

Royalty Recipient Manager is directly connected to all Klopotek applications in the area of contracts, rights, and royalties. This application runs on STREAM, Klopotek’s cloud-based platform for optimized user interaction on computers and mobile devices.
