"We are pleased to offer Musicalc customers the first tangible benefit from the acquisition," said Bob Kohn, Chairman and CEO, RoyaltyShare. "One of the biggest headaches of royalty accounting is dealing with the staggering volume and inherent complexity of digital sales data. RoyaltyShare can now take this burden completely off the shoulders of Musicalc customers, allowing them to spend time on more important activities."
"Throughout twenty-five years of developing royalty accounting software for record labels and music publishers, we have lived through a number of significant technological changes in the music industry, but none so dramatic as the recent shift to digital distribution," said Chris Palmer, director of product management for Europe at RoyaltyShare, and co-founder of Musicalc. "Digital sales have introduced a new level of complexity in royalty processing that requires new, scalable technology capable of processing high-volume, complex transactions. The RoyaltyShare platform will be an essential tool for our customers to manage royalty responsibilities and capitalize on digital assets."
As part of today's announcement, RoyaltyShare has opened its London office to house the combined Musicalc/RoyaltyShare operations and provide dedicated support to its European record label and publishing clients.
