The Aptitude Royalty Calculation Engine helps digital service providers and revenue share organizations with complex or high-volume, low-margin business models. We enable the efficient implementation of royalty and revenue management systems to account for revenue share agreements, residuals, rebates and accruals.
Organizations in a range of industries from digital media to life sciences and high-tech are faced with the challenge of paying royalties for IP usage or complex rebates and revenue shares. Record companies, for example, need to make sure artists, collection societies and other intermediaries across the supply chain are paid accurately and on-time. For many, this is a major P&L line item and true operational challenge not catered to by their packaged software offerings or enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
