Rights & Permissions Case Study

Rights & Royalties Project Summary

Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, has a mission to help make a difference by empowering progress with global learning. With the changing technology landscape, Pearson is able to drive a changing landscape of education around the world, from textbooks to e-books to new innovative educational approaches. In order to quickly respond and adapt to new ways of doing business, Pearson elected to deploy a single global instance of FADEL IPM Suite to replace over 30 internal Rights & Royalty Management systems in 7 regions around the world – the UK, South Africa, US/Canada, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, EMEA and India/APAC.

The solution supports the content creation and planning activities with rights clearance capabilities and workflow management, as well as providing robust agreement management with full rights awareness, the validation of sales transactions against contract terms, royalty calculations that take into account both incoming and outgoing rights & royalties, and invoice and statement generation. IPM Suite is also fully integrated with Pearson’s Oracle EBS platform, Oracle PDH MDM, Salesforce CRM, Alfresco Content Management/Imaging Solution, Advanced Pricing, Author Portal, and Workflow platforms.
