Egmont Kids Media chooses Publishing Technology

Company's advance platform to strengthen contracts and rights management

(PresseBox) (London, UK, ) Leading global children's publisher, Egmont Kids Media has chosen Publishing Technology and its advance platform to implement a global contracts and rights system.

The advance platform will provide the book, magazine and digital publisher with a single, centralised and streamlined database containing all of its contract and rights information in a single resource.

Egmont will be able to track the status of its contracts at every stage of the process, and manage rights, sub rights, fragments and permissions more effectively across the company.

Henrik Højsholt Nielsen, CFO Egmont Kids Media, commented: "Contracts form a fundamental part of our publishing activity, so it is important for us to have a system in place that keeps the process as simple and effective as possible for our employees and stakeholders. The advance platform will strengthen our existing systems and help us to manage contracts and opportunities across multiple products, content types and internal departments as well as to use a harmonised system in our different Kids Media territories . We are looking forward to working with Publishing Technology on this important new system."

George Lossius, CEO at Publishing Technology, stated: "When it comes to contracts, many publishers, especially larger companies with multiple international sites, operate localised systems. The advance solution offers one centralised resource for contracts that ensures consistent information that can be accessed with ease across the enterprise. We are delighted to have been chosen by Egmont to implement the system and are excited to help the company better leverage its assets."

The new advance contracts and rights system will first go live in Kids Media's UK and Denmark offices.
