We talked about our history, the product enhancements we are delivering today, and where we are headed in the future. Ludo Hertroijs and Viv Makila listened to the enhancement requests from our customers at the previous summit and prioritized those requirements for delivery in the latest release. Bookmaster Release 8 features Contracts, Rights & Royalty Management allowing publishing companies to manage the complexities of partnerships between publishers, intellectual property owners, consumers and upstream supply chain partners for handling royalties, subsidiary rights and the associated financial arrangements.
