Company Provides End-to-End Cloud Service Support For iCloud And Beyond
June 20, 2011 (NEW YORK, NY) RightsFlow, a leading technology-driven licensing and royalty service provider, is now offering enhanced and expanded support capabilities for record label and distribution partners who are participating in the emerging iCloud environment. The recent announcement by Apple of iCloud, and the expected future launch of similar services by others, have added new and complex responsibilities for labels and distributors, accelerating their need to be able to properly identify, accurately account, and efficiently pay publishers. To fill this need, RightsFlow is announcing the launch of Cloud Support Services, giving labels a one-stop solution for end-to-end management of all iCloud and similar reporting and payment obligations.
