kobaltMusic publishing and services company Kobalt has created an integrated data insight tool for artists, labels, publishers and songwriters to track their music and royalties globally in real-time. Clients can now view statements and catalog information, and compare sales, streams and views from Spotify, YouTube, and iTunes in real-time through the Digital Sales tracker. The Kobalt portal also allows detailed analysis of global revenue by various criteria, including income type and territory. Clients can also track views and earnings for YouTube user-generated and partner-provided content.

Additionally, the publishing section of the portal now allows writers to view digital collection data from Spotify, YouTube, and iTunes in real-time. KLS and publishing clients can also use the Kobalt Portal to follow the synch pipeline at each stage of the licensing process. Publishing clients can also take out advances on their income through the portal.

Willard Ahdritz, founder and CEO of Kobalt said: “This is another giant step toward creating an industry platform that offers a more transparent future for artists, songwriters and publishers around the world. The incorporation of label services as a third strand of the Kobalt Portal completes its transition into the world’s first fully comprehensive rights tool. With one hit song today creating billions of transactions, our portal offers an unparalleled level of transparency, enabling Kobalt clients to understand what is happening with their music throughout the global market.”
