Highlights

Advanced Royalty Calculations
From joint accounting for multiple titles to multi-currency advances and deduction tracking, Biblio can process the most complex royalty calculations, including; combining products and rules for sales escalation, calculate retentions and refunds, offset earnings against advances or to other titles and payees and automatic handling

of returns.

Royalty Runs on Demand
Complete royalty runs on demand for individual contracts or a whole period and display real-time publisher commitments. Display accrued earnings based on the very latest information, showing the effect of contractual changes immediately. Generate draft statements to begin reconciliation of a period end early in order to minimise workload bottlenecks.

Aggregate and View Sales Data

Import daily sales feeds from multiple disparate sources, in different formats and currencies. The system then aggregates the sales data and allows users to drill into royalty calculations to view and edit sales data with a robust audit trail.

High Speed Calculations

Using its advanced royalty calculation engine that takes advantage of multiple CPU servers, the Biblio suite is capable of delivering a full period-end royalty run in record time.

Flexible Statements on Demand
Create printable statement packs on demand. Show earnings grouped by customer; manage newly published titles in the current period, and titles being suppressed from the printable files due to sales inactivity. Produce a duplicate pack for a third party and pay a percentage of the earnings if required.
