Record Label and Royalty Management

Metadata matters

For label owners, the accuracy of metadata is paramount. Properly managed metadata not only ensures that music is correctly catalogued and accessible on digital platforms but also secures the rightful attribution and distribution of royalties. Using the ALV software, label managers can maintain impeccable metadata records for every track and release. This ensures every piece of music is fully traceable, safeguarding revenue and compliance.

Digitized contractual terms

By automating the contractual parameters, ALV ensures precision in handling advances, and deductions. Artists and producers can rely on you for detailed, understandable royalty statements that reflect their true earnings, bolstering their confidence and trust in your label’s management.

Royalties automation

Automating the royalty generation process is a game-changer for label owners. ALV's automation features dramatically reduce the time and labor involved in generating royalty statements, transforming a process that used to take weeks into one that can be completed in a matter of hours. This not only saves money but also enhances operational efficiency, allowing your team to focus on artist development and monetization.

Metadata: Unlocking Success in the Streaming Era

In today's digital-driven music industry, meticulous management of metadata for tracks and releases is crucial for achieving success. Metadata—including essential details such as track titles, artist names, songwriter credits, genre classifications, ISRC codes for tracks, and EAN/UPC barcodes for releases—serves as the foundational digital fingerprint of music. Proper metadata management ensures that music is accurately cataloged, easily tracked and monetized, which is vital for effective marketing and precise royalty calculations.

With multiple revenue streams from digital downloads, streaming, physical sales, and licensing, a comprehensive 360° approach to revenue generation is essential. Identifying errors in sales data is vital to maintain financial integrity and ensure artists receive fair compensation.
