Permissions Clearance

Arc designed and built the online permissions clearance system PLSclear for the Publishers’ Licensing Society (PLS). This system allows authors, agents, publishers and individuals to search for titles and to send a structured clearance request to the licensor. An online permissions wizard takes the non-professional through the journey of describing what they want to clear and what their usage will be in plain English, which is then converted into a comprehensive professional request.

Arc integrated PLSclear with the databases listing millions of titles so that requests can be automatically routed through to the publisher or licensor within seconds. The requestor only needs to find the title and the system will do the rest for them.

Arc’s usability team converted hundreds of clearance and permissions questions provided by industry experts into a plain English wizard that can handle many different types of requests. The system increases the likelihood of a clearance request being successful because it produces coherent and comprehensive requests that are to the standard of experienced industry professionals, and reduces the amount of expensive and time consuming back and forth correspondence created by online forms and emails.
