Rights Tracker has licensed its web-enabled rights management software to global television production group Shine. The software will manage all of the Group’s production and distribution rights.
Multi-company functionality will allow companies within Shine Group to control their licences and titles independently, as well as enable the group sales and distribution arm Shine International to manage end-to-end the 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 said: “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, said: “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 itself. 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.”
