Since June 2015, SUISA members have access to new services via their personal online user accounts: “my account” now offers distribution statements in pdf format, access to personal data and an improved work search facility. Text by Claudia Kempf
SUISA is gradually extending its online services for its members. The password-protected members’ area “my account” has been entirely re-developed. The redesigned platform enables functionalities in future that require a smooth exchange with the back office and other IT systems at SUISA.
Distribution statements as pdfs and access to personal data
The first version of the re-programmed online portal offers SUISA members extended options in some areas:
Members can now access all their distributions from the last five years. These distributions shall be made available in pdf for downloading.
Personal data such as postal addresses and payment addresses can be displayed. Any pseudonyms registered and the relevant IPI numbers are listed in the “profile” area.
All details were summarised for publishing members with sub-editions or several main publishers. The merged data are clearly arranged and easily accessible via one login.
In addition to the above improvements, further functions of the previous version have been revised and optimised. The search in the works database contains additional functionalities. It is now possible to specifically search for provisional/temporary works registrations. A work is deemed to have been registered provisionally if SUISA has found out about it due to a usage report, but if the work has not yet, only partially, or under a completely different title been registered with SUISA by the author or publisher.
Furthermore, sub-publishers are now also shown in the works database. Finally, the online works registration has been adapted and expanded by additional entry fields.
Mobile-friendly and future-proof
Of course, our “my account” platform is compatible with mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. We are planning to continually extend the services in the online user account by further functionalities and additional services over the next 4 years. We shall keep you informed on any related news via SUISAblog.ch, suisa.ch or in our SUISAinfo magazine.
|Access to “my account” is open to every SUISA member. You can order your login for your personal online user account under:|
