Make a complex, time-consuming process much easier and more efficient

As a publisher you need to maintain a good reputation and trustworthiness to sign authors. It starts with dependable and accurate royalty management. With Schilling Royalty, you handle every agreement on time and accurately. In fact, you’ll calculate payments three times faster than with Excel and issue payments twice as fast as via manual methods. And servicing your authors, contributors, and rights owners is easy, thanks to fully automated routines and customised agreement templates.

Once you’ve entered an agreement into the system, royalties are calculated automatically – making even quantity-dependent rates and deductions simple and 100% accurate. Everything is available in one intuitive system, either as a separate module integrated with your current finance system or as an integrated part of a combined Contract, Rights & Royalty solution. Regular system updates ensure that it stays user-friendly. So the only surprise you might get with your annual result is that there are no surprises.

  • Track several authors on one ISBN number
  • Use bar codes to reserve and import annual returns from bookshops, if required
  • Register titles with edition and impression control
  • Handle several authors with individual agreements on the same publication
  • Make settlements whenever you want
  • Determine publication price, price groups, and sales channels freely
  • Include all rights sales in one settlement

Calculate royalties at the touch of a button

Once you have created the agreements in the system, royalties from each sale are settled automatically with predefined rates, prices, etc. Royalty settlement is simple for all sales channels.

Bonnierförlagen makes full use of Schilling Publishing

One of Europe’s leading publishing groups, Bonnierförlagen, says Schilling has a very far-sighted and solution-oriented approach – with “a genuine willingness to get from A to B in the best possible way.”


Because royalty calculation is quite complex and at the same time one of the most important financial transactions for a publisher, we chose Schilling because Schilling has the most efficient royalty solution in the market as far as we know.
