The company’s SaaS platform utilises blockchain technology to allow rights owners the ability to license, distribute, track and manage content across multiple platforms.

Additionally, a data intelligence platform provides artists and rights holders with reports of how, where and when their music is being consumed.

For Exigent Capital, it’s another targeted investment into leveraging big-data analytics after funding medical technology company MedyMatch.
