Merlin launches new member dashboard

By | Published on Friday 31 January 2014


Indie label digital rights group Merlin has announced the launch of a new member dashboard, which will enable the 600 labels and distributors the organisation represents to access all their deal activity information and, moving forward, other data such as royalty reporting, financial statements and market analysis. The new facility is powered by a web-based reporting and analytics application called OTTO.

The dashboard will go live during Merlin’s upcoming member meeting at MIDEM, where refreshed branding for the rights group will also be revealed. Confirming this, Merlin boss Charles Caldas told CMU: “Merlin has always taken seriously our commitment to offer our members the most efficient and transparent service possible. Given the pace at which the market is moving, we believe this dashboard will greatly enhance our members’ interaction with Merlin, and with the digital market”.

Meanwhile Merlin’s Head Of Operations And Member Services Tom Deakin added: “After all of the hard work designing this tool with OTTO, I’m excited to see the launch of the system to the labels and distributors we represent. Via this dashboard, we can significantly enhance the way we interact with our members”.
