    The platform which can already deliver content to more than 300 distributors, aggregators, streaming services and online retail stores, including iTunes, 24/7 Entertainment, 7Digital, Amazon Digital and Beatport has, with its easy to use interface, revolutionized the management of digital repertoire.

    Launched in spring 2008, FUGA is a web application used by rights holders worldwide such as Nettwerk Music Group, BFM Digital, Symphonic Distribution, Second Wind Digital (One Little Indian / Fatcat), Record Union, Essential Distribution (Cooking Vinyl), M_nus, Cocoon Recordings, Armada Music, Skint / Loaded Records, Ultra Records, Toolroom, Cr2 and Rough Trade Benelux to manage their digital catalogue from a central location.

    Using the platform’s simple user interface, content owners can easily maintain their catalogue’s metadata, make new compilations from already uploaded items, create digital release schedules and access up to the minute data on where their releases have been delivered.

    FUGA does not act as a distributor or reseller between the labels and the online stores. These deals are negotiated directly between FUGA customers and the stores.

    Additionally all Merlin members can use FUGA to deliver to MySpace, Spotify and 7digital utilizing the licensing deals negotiated by Merlin with these services.

    Said Rebecca Driessen COO of FUGA. “We are pleased to add to the diverse range of digital services that FUGA content providers can deliver to. We have connected these services to FUGA on behalf of the forward-thinking labels who have chosen to use FUGA to manage their digital operation. FUGA labels understand the incredible operational savings introduced by the tool. Instead of having their time consumed by data management, labels who use FUGA can now focus on what they do best – strategically promoting and growing their digital business”.

    Said Tom Allen at Essential Distribution / Cooking Vinyl, “FUGA has become a great asset to Essential, providing us with a platform that delivers into our accountancy package, DSPs and other services.  This flexibility has given us an ideal solution for improving workflow and provides a central part in our digital activities.”
