Rights and Royalty Management in the Cloud

Supporting IP commerce across the licensing lifecycle.

FADEL’s cloud-based solution for Rights & Royalty Management empowers you to take control of your agreements and automate payouts based on distribution rights. With FADEL’s pre-configured industry templates and guided implementations, our goal is to help organizations get up and running in 90 days or less.

For Licensees

When you are licensing in intellectual property in a variety of forms, e.g., merchandise, technology, patents, content, compounds and formulas, and managing royalty payouts, accuracy is vital. FADEL’s product suite helps licensees across industries gain control and visibility across the lifecycle of their licensed content, from contract management to payment. Our solution manages agreements, rights hierarchies, payment terms, and royalty rates to give you the view and control required. Additionally, the solution automates the calculation of outbound royalty payments based on sales or other contractual obligations.

With FADEL’s IP management solutions, you can:

  • Easily view license status, including renewals and amendments to existing licenses.
  • Analyze data to identify trends that may drive strategic direction and have an impact on contract negotiations.
  • Run audits with the confidence that your data is sound.
  • Eliminate the overpayment of royalties due to a lack of visibility.
  • Automate and bolster royalty accounting with a powerful set of capabilities, including generating reports that adapt to licensor format and requirements and the ability to assign revenue at the time of sale.
  • Integrate with ERP financial systems such as Oracle and SAP to automate straight-through invoicing, payment processing and financial reporting.

For Mid-Market Publishers

Mid-market publishers need to adapt to a radically changing marketplace to remain competitive. Expanding digital platforms, multiple usage channels, content aggregation and complex royalty processing present challenges daily. Between contract volume and varying terms, author agreements very quickly become difficult to track and properly manage. Additionally, publishers are investing more time and resources than desired to generate, print and distribute payee statements to authors.

Many publishers are choosing to migrate from legacy royalty management systems to a more robust solution that addresses modern demands such as new rate structures and channels of distribution.

FADEL’s cloud-based solution makes implementation easy. FADEL IPM Suite for Publishers:

  • Manages agreements, rights hierarchies, payment terms, and royalty rates to give you the visibility and control required.
  • Supports changes in rate structures and distribution models.
  • Tracks and processes author payouts based on distribution rights and rate structures.
  • Integrates with ERP financial systems such as Oracle and SAP to automate straight-through invoicing, payment processing and financial reporting.
  • Provides self-service and reporting capabilities to authors via an Author Portal.
