Most publishers do not have specialist staff handling permissions, so it can be difficult to maximise the amount of profit that can be generated from this area.

However, PLS can now handle your permissions business for you, in the same way we manage your collective licensing.

Our Permissions Assist service includes day-to-day management of your permissions business:

  • Processing all requests
  • Issuing licences for free of charge and chargeable requests (or forwarding for review)
  • Processing and remitting payments
  • Issuing invoices
  • Credit control
  • Reporting
