MetaComet Systems: Where We Are Headed in 2016

Overview

Our main goal for 2016 is to make our customers, partners, and colleagues run the most efficient operations possible. Thanks to the great feedback from all of you, we are deep into the development of many exciting projects that are sure to make your royalty management process even more efficient.

We also look forward to seeing you at one of the many conferences that MetaComet is sponsoring or exhibiting at this year, including two in London.

For all the details, please read on.

The MetaVerse™ Platform

As you may know, MetaComet has been redesigning all of our tools from the ground up using the latest internet technologies and cutting edge engineering principles to continue to provide you with the most powerful intellectual property platform available.

MetaComet’s new platform contains (so far) 13 individual apps which come together in different ways to provide exactly the feature sets that you need.  This is the MetaComet Universe of tools:  The MetaVerse™ platform.

The first MetaVerse™ tool released to production was AuthorPortal.com, which included an early version of PublisherSales.net (currently known as the Sales Aggregator). We are actively bringing all of our other tools to the MetaVerse™. For more information on the MetaVerse™ Platform please read this article.

Continued R&D on Royalty Tracker

While we are deep in development of the next generation of tools, we continue our strong focus on making you as efficient and profitable as possible TODAY.  We continue to invest heavily in Royalty Tracker to stay at the leading edge.  MetaComet’s engineers have been hard at work on our latest release, making our tools even better and easier for you to use.

This new release of Royalty Tracker® contains many process enhancements and fixes to both our new Rights Tracker(tm) features and to the sales import process.

You may have read about all the productivity enhancing features that we have added to our tools last year in previous blog entries.  Rest assured that we are not resting on our laurels!  We are deep into development of our newest versions of Royalty Tracker, along with the development of The MetaVerse™ Platform.

New Knowledge Base

In an effort to make your use of our tools as effective as possible, MetaComet has begun investing in a new knowledge base.   We have completed the initial implementation process of our new FreshDesk support system. We will now begin building on that by launching a knowledge base within FreshDesk.  As we analyze the support issues coming in, we will build the knowledge base to address the most common questions.

Thanks to you we have a lot of great ideas for the future of Royalty Tracker. And we always want more!  Please let us know how we can make you more productive. Thank you to all of our customers for the great feedback – please keep it coming.
