AM-BEO Ltd. has rolled out nSettlement, a product designed to address the complexities of partner management and revenue allocation in the digital content industry. AM-BEO announced it at Billing and OSS World 2004.
The delivery of content services, such as games, ring tones and news require revenue-sharing arrangements between service providers, portals, online advertisers and others. NSettlement supports customized agreements to accommodate the individual nature of such agreements. It calculates and appropriates the revenue generated and costs incurred from every transaction, across all members of the value chain, even if that chain is dynamic, with some partners appearing at several points in the process.
These revenue-sharing agreements can be subject to volume commitments and thresholds as well as advertising and royalty models, explains Jason Briggs, program manager with the Yankee Group. AM-BEO users can review the status of revenue allocations for each partner agreement, with tools for threshold, performance and financial analysis.
