“We are talking about a massive $45-billion-dollar per year global music economy, where people are consuming more and more music, and amazingly almost half of royalty payments aren’t finding their way back to the beneficial owner. The majority of players in the media and collective rights industry still rely on outdated means of tracking distribution and payments, and have completely failed to adapt or modernize their infrastructure to properly handle the explosion of data, channels and new business models,” said Bruno Guez, CEO and Founder of Revelator. “An integrated and cloud-based platform such as Revelator is able to provide attribution, reporting and business intelligence from one dashboard, enabling distributors, record companies, publishers, managers, artists and songwriters access to their sales and marketing data wherever they are.
Midemlab named Revelator one of the top 20 music startups of 2016.
