This year has been, again, pretty hectic and filled with highs and lows. One thing we realized is how important the tools of music businesses have become. Other than working towards making the music industry function with Covid, we noticed the need to adapt to all new digital trends (and the revenue streams that come with).
So let’s take a moment to reflect on the last year and let us tell you a bit more about what’s to come next on Reprtoir’s roadmap for 2022.
Previously on Reprtoir in 2021
Let’s quickly recap what we released in Reprtoir in 2021:
All-in-one Royalties Manager came online
First things first: we released Royalties Manager after a beta session in January 2021. Our royalty accounting software has been built with the support of our customers and the community using Reprtoir. After a few months, the first version was online!
We took all the feedback we could and guided our new users through the interface. We proceeded to build our roadmap according to the needs of our customers and worked primarily on improving splits management in the workspace and the ability to send statements by email. But we didn’t stop there.
We then worked on a major update of our royalty accounting software: Contract Balances and Cross Collateralization. Our goal here was to make Royalties Manager more malleable for teams using the solution.
Finally, the last touch (for this year at least) was the release of the Rights-Holders Portal. Thanks to this new feature, record labels and music publishers can be fully transparent on their management with their Rights-Holders by giving them access to a private online space that centralises their statements and sales data.
All in all, we are always looking to improve our solution, and new updates are coming very soon! But I’ll get back to that. Not too shabby, we even talked about our thoughts on how and why Royalties Manager is helping record labels and music publishers manage their operations in Music Business Worldwide.
Integrating other music services to Reprtoir
This year, we also started working on Integrations. What are they exactly? A list of services for music professionals that we want to be compatible with (distributors, aggregators, retailers, neighboring organizations, CMO, PRO, MRO, etc.).
We Integrated more than 65 music services such as The Orchard, Believe, BMI, PRS for Music, or Kobalt to make sure to include all features our clients need. And of course, if a service is missing from the list for one of our users, we make sure to add it as soon as possible.
A new and improved documentation
Last but not least, this year we added a lot of new features and went through many discussions with the team. So we thought it was time to update our online Documentation and tutorials to help users navigate the workspace easily. It is now available to all our customers, has been re-written and re-organized (on the top right corner of the screen).
A sneak peak at Reprtoir in 2022
So what could you expect from us in 2022? We always take a look at the suggestions and feedback we receive from our customers (you can do so in your workspace, in the section "Give Feedback"), but dd we already have a few things in store for you.
January 2022 will be the time to start using this brand-new feature we are currently polishing:
- Starting with Sales Analytics for Royalties Manager! All users will be able to work with insights on Sales directly linked to their workspace in Reprtoir (and Rights-Holders in their Portal).
- We will also add tools to create advanced deduction rules and to manage escalations. Push Royalties Manager to the next level!
- And among other things, we will keep integrating more than 30 other music services, which you can keep track of in our public list on the website.
Stay tuned, all those features will soon be online and this is only a small part of what we plan to deploy in 2022!
From all of us at Reprtoir, I want to sincerely thank you for the trust you have placed in us and all the support we regularly receive from our users, which gives us the strength to go even further to make your business succeed.
Our goal is to create a smoother workflow for record labels and music publishers, better communication between Reprtoir’s various features and help you grow your business in the best way possible.
We are always glad to see that our software suite is doing its job in assisting you and we can’t wait to keep working alongside you next year!
We wish you all happy holidays and a Happy New Year 2022.
