The core features of Apollon software

1. Get remuneration data the easy way

With its huge amount of information and its ­modern user interface with some powerful ­workflow and productivity enhancements tools Apollon makes it easier for you to get what your clients or members have earned.

With all the right holder and repertoire ­information you need

In the Right Holder Information Database you will find names and contact informations of producers and performers, record companies, CMOs and MLCs, banks, recovery ­agencies, heirs, mandate ­informations and some very practical CRM features with a ­correspondence repository. The Repertoire Management Database handles recordings, products and line-ups. So you’ve got everything on your hands to get your remunerations done quickly and easily.

Distribution becomes ­comprehensible

When it comes to Distribution it’s very easy to miss something. But not with Apollon. Because it keeps a close eye on this and helps you to get your accounting done correctly. And you can set all the rules and ­parameters to match your needs perfectly.

  • Matching of actual usage to repertoire
  • auto-matching on server
  • matching rules fully customizable
  • matching memory (no redundant manual work)
  • manual match suggestions in real time (using Apache® Lucene™ technology)
  • Distribution rules and parameters
  • Distribution calculation and accounting (incl. costs, revenues, deductions)
  • Value attachment to recordings, per usage type/right (for prioritization)
  • Payout (including tax handling, domestic/­foreign, bank transfer etc.)
  • Reporting, financial statements, analytics (with Business Intelligence tools)

Sharing your information with your clients

With Apollon authenticated customers can also view their detailed remuneration and usage statements on a special web portal. There they can also control and change their personal ­information available to CMOs and MLCs.

Using external data ­sources

It’s also very easy for you to integrate external data sources for your repertoire information database because SDEG and IPD are already fully ­integrated, VRDB2 will be as soon as it is available.

Reports and analyses that will thrill your clients

Thanks to Apollon and the integration of IBM® ­Cognos® CMOs and MLCs can now easily create ­customized reports and statistics with drill-down capability. These reports can be used to generate detailed customer statements as well as high level of statistical and financial overviews for your ­annual reports.

Apollon as a Performer ­Management tool

2. All there is to know about your stars

Apollon also works as a Performer ­Management tool with detailed information about ­mandates and line-ups. It offers the ­direct ­integration of IPD via web services, a ­fully implemented SDEG workflow and is ready to integrate the new VRDB2.
