ZURICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SUISA, the Cooperative Society of Music Authors and Publishers in Switzerland, has launched an online self-service portal built with the Appway Platform to digitalize its business and communicate securely with members online. The organization, which collects license fees and pays out royalties when musical works are broadcast, performed or reproduced, built the portal on Appway 6. The portal enables Swiss songwriters, composers, and music publishers to access account information and register new works.
Developers from SUISA built the portal themselves, with training from Appway Academy and support from Appway consultants. Previously, the organization communicated through paper letters and mail. Today, members can access statements and information from SUISA through their online portal, where they can update their details and view information about their musical works. Over 500 members registered within the first two weeks and the portal now serves over 1,000. The goal is to serve all 34,000 members. As the number of registered members steadily grows, SUISA will increase efficiency and reduce paper across their organization.
SUISA’s plans for innovation have only just begun: As a next step towards digitalizing its business, the company plans to exchange its mainframe architecture with service-oriented architecture with Appway orchestrating all user interactions.
Appway empowers the service industries to move beyond automation toward ongoing digital transformation. With its seamless orchestration of people, knowledge, and systems, Appway promotes collective intelligence and enables businesses to reinvent for the digital age. Headquartered in Zurich with offices in Geneva, Ticino, New York, Hong Kong, and Singapore, Appway and its award-winning technology serve over 145 service institutions and 275,000 individuals worldwide.
