Rights Sales Solution
Marketing and selling rights is a critical business for many publishers. To run their business in the most efficient way, rights managers require a clear overview of which rights have been acquired from an author, and which rights remain available to sell.
A frequent problem rights managers face is ambiguous information about restrictions and the lack of an automated tracking system. In order to meet these challenges, the rights department should implement a solution that supports and guides rights managers throughout the sales process, from checking rights availability to sales reporting.

It consists of the STREAM apps Rights Sales Manager, Rights Accounting Manager, and Rights Sales Contract Manager, which are all seamlessly integrated.
