SOCAN today launched its new mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, offering its members 24/7 access to a wide array of functionality wherever they are. SOCAN members can now browse their catalogues, calculate their performance royalties and review their statements on the go. Whether in the studio, in a hotel room, or traveling to a gig, members can access their SOCAN account anytime, anywhere.
SOCAN licensees can also use a unique "licence finder" tool to determine which ones apply to their situation, and easily calculate their licence fees.
"This is a great step forward in maximizing SOCAN's service to its members and licensees," said Eric Baptiste, CEO of SOCAN. "We can now offer them the convenience of on-demand access to SOCAN in the palm of their hands."
SOCAN’s app will soon be available for Blackberry and Windows smart phones. As members' and licensees' use of its mobile app increases, SOCAN will adjust it according to their input, improving its features and capabilities wherever possible.
