Who is the webinar for?

All ALPSP publishers and content creators who are interested in finding out more about licensing solutions being implemented by Publishers' Licensing Services (PLS).

It is equally useful for staff who deal with incoming permissions requests, as well as those involved in making permissions requests.

Why join the webinar?

Rights and permissions are not always at the top of everyone’s favourite things to do, but they are very important to any content-based organization. This webinar will provide not only a clear and straightforward guide to managing permissions, but will also provide an introduction to one solution which can support your permissions needs, the PLS Permission service. The PLS Permissions service is designed to make the process: 

  • Simpler - A user-friendly interface makes it easy to capture all necessary information. 
  • Faster - Requests that once took weeks can now take minutes. 
  • Friendlier - Better customer service and ...
  • More profitable - Efficiencies enable high volumes of permissions to be handled, so optimising revenues.

What the webinar will cover

  • Having a productive conversation about permissions
  • Some approaches to thinking about a licensing strategy
  • Better understanding the customer journey
  • How PLS can help raise the profile of rights and permissions in your organisation
  • Good housekeeping: how and when to review your licensing structure

Key take-aways

Practical next steps to manage your permissions better.  

This webinar builds on the ALPSP/PLS webinar on Effective Management of Rights held earlier this year and those who participated will find a number of new elements introduced. Equally, those who did not participate in January's session will also find this webinar a useful introduction.
