Rights and Royalties management for publishers

The Rights and Royalties modules of Ingenta Commercial provide publishers with end-to-end management and monetisation of your intellectual property.

Our Rights management software provides accurate and timely data about which rights you own and the extent to which they are being exploited. It alerts you to expiring rights so you can forecast cash flows and identify opportunities for new deals. It is underpinned by the ability to effectively manage associated contracts at a granular level. The Rights application is complemented by our Royalties management software which enables you to calculate complex royalties quickly, easily and with confidence. You can license each application individually, alongside existing solutions, or combine them in one powerful product.

Rights and Royalties enables you to sell more pro-actively and license more creatively, increasing your awareness of opportunities to get the most out of your assets while ensuring you fulfil your contractual obligations and minimise your operating expenses.
