Universal Music Publishing Group Unveils New Royalty Portal

UMPG has unveiled a new royalty portal, UMPG Window, that provides UMPG writers and clients with instant access to clear, complete and real-time earnings and data. The UMPG Window app can be installed on iOS and Android platforms.

UMPG Window is a state-of-the-art solution that empowers clients with 24/7 access to all of their royalty information. Using the latest in cloud-indexing technology, the system offers information on a highly-granular level available in both numeric and graphic representations. Clients can instantaneously view earnings by work title, accounting periods, territory, digital service provider, income source, income group, income type, local/international and more. 

It also features customizable settings that provide tailored information snapshots based on user preference. Royalties are available through high-level overviews or detailed reports with deep analytics and insights and it provides not only society registration information but also registration status and full song copyright information on all works.

John Reston, EVP Global Administration at UMPG, said, “In designing and developing UMPG Window, our team worked closely with our songwriters and clients to best understand what they most wanted from a world-class, fully transparent portal and app. This kind of collaboration is a reflection of how we do business: our songwriters and publisher clients are partners in everything we do. We will always keep innovating to better the lives of our writers and support their songs, and that is why UMPG continues to raise the bar for the industry.”

UMPG circulates international income on a quarterly basis to all UMPG affiliates, accelerating international income to all of its songwriters and clients. The portal launch also sees the introduction of a brand-new international royalty ‘pipeline’ feature, enabling users to preview and access earnings as they are received around the world. Building on its popular one-click advance feature, UMPG Window now offers the unique ability for clients to request no-fee advances based on both current period earnings and international pipeline earnings.
