The past few months have been highly challenging for us here at TVE as we bed down a number of massive new client wins that we've been unable to publicise... until now!
I'm delighted to announce that Rights Tracker has been adopted by NewsCorp's Shine production subsidiary to manage all of its rights. Here's the press release:
Leading rights management software developers Rights Tracker has
licensed its web-enabled software suite to global production group
Shine. The system will completely manage the Group’s Production and
Distribution Rights end-to-end.
Rights Tracker Enterprise is a bespoke, configurable system which has
been designed to integrate with Shine’s business platforms.
Multi-company functionality will allow companies within Shine Group to
independently control their licenses and title metadata. Meanwhile, the
system will manage the Group Sales and Distribution arm Shine
International’s end-to-end acquisitions and sales processes. As phase
one of the implementation Rights Tracker’s modules have been integrated
into Shine International’s financial package.
Ronan Walsh, Rights Systems Manager at Shine Group: “As part of a wider
business systems initiative, Shine Group had identified a need for a web
enabled solution covering our product life cycle, from group production
companies through to our international distribution division. The
Rights Tracker solution fulfilled all of our requirements.”
Ross Bentley, Rights Tracker’s CEO comments: “It is tremendous news that
Shine has made the decision to use our software in order to manage
their business processes. The Group is a hugely impressive global player
whose ability to grow super-brands such as MasterChef speaks for
themselves. Shine understands that rigorous management of rights and
metadata from initial production through to international exploitation
and beyond is key to ensuring maximum return on their brands. This deal
points to a very exciting future for us.”
