Merlin launches online dashboard for members

30 January, 2014

Global indie rights agency Merlin has launched a new online dashboard that allows users instant and secure access to their membership.

Powered by Merlin’s web-based reporting and analytics application OTTO, the online system offers each member of the organisation a secure portal where they can manage all of their company information and details of their deal activity since the global rights agency launched for business in May 2008.

Additional functionalities, such as royalty reporting, market analysis and financial statements, will be introduced throughout 2014.

The tool will go live before Merlin’s member meeting at Midem and coincides with a rebrand of the organisation’s website and logo (pictured).

“Merlin has always taken seriously our commitment to offer our members the most efficient and transparent service possible,” said Merlin CEO Charles Caldas. “Given the pace at which the market is moving, we believe this dashboard will greatly enhance our members’ interaction with Merlin, and with the digital market."

Tom Deakin, Merlin's head of operations and member services adds: "After all of the hard work designing this tool with OTTO, I'm excited to see the launch of the system to the labels and distributors we represent. Via this dashboard, we can significantly enhance the way we interact with our members.”
