Unified Music Systems
A UMS is a plug-and-play platform that combines music licensing, expert curation, and streaming infrastructure, allowing businesses to seamlessly integrate a powerful music experience into their products.
A UMS helps rightsholders monetize more of their catalogs while gaining market data and insights from a wide range of apps and digital environments.
What is a UMS?
A Unified Music System (UMS) offers a secure method for businesses to stream music in apps, safeguarding attribution and compliance.
For rightsholders, a UMS aggregates new revenue streams to expand audiences and reduce the time you spend vetting and managing deals.
By eliminating the issue of "black box money" it ensures that the correct rightsholders receive timely payment for their work and provides access to valuable insights.

The opportunities around emerging platforms are still mostly untapped
The fragmentation of how music is licensed to apps and connected devices has made it unmanageable for rightsholders and inaccessible for developers.
For many prospective licensors, music is not their core product, and many wait until it's too late to figure out licensing. This often results in apps using royalty-free music, infringing, or skipping music altogether.
The music industry is counting on emerging platforms
So far, growth has been slow and unscalable.
Developers want music—it's proven to drive engagement
Using the right music in the right place at the right time creates fully engaging digital experiences that earn loyalty and retention.

We call this music disconnect
Only the most highly resourced companies have the bandwidth to navigate licensing, stay on top of music trends, decipher music metadata, and analyze terabytes of preference and usage reports.
And, while the music industry wants to capitalize on new platforms, rightsholders generally don’t have the bandwidth to spend extensive amounts of time with startups with unproven revenue models.
