04/24/2009 - Longterm Solutions LLC is pleased to announce the immediate availability of NowPublisher, a complete management system for music publishing companies of all sizes. NowPublisher finally delivers what music publishers have been asking for–a comprehensive solution for keeping track of all of the information in a music publishing company–in an easy-to-use software package.

Available immediately, NowPublisher provides a comprehensive system for tracking every aspect of a music publishing company. The solution includes sections for songs, songwriters, publishers, pitches, project budgeting, a full-featured scheduling calendar, invoicing, and much more.

NowPublisher is completely networkable, allowing an unlimited number of users to access the system and view or make changes to the data, using encrypted password protection that ensures data privacy. The entire system ties to an optional web component that allows users to view their data from any web browser; iPhone users will be able to access the data from the iPhone with the addition of an iPhone application to be released in the second half of 2009.

Using NowPublisher, a publishing company can upload songs into the system, and either play them from the database or from any web browser. Authorized system users can view song lyrics, writer and publisher information, pitch information, search the contact database, schedule appointments, work on project budgets–all from any web browser, anywhere in the world.

NowPublisher is completely cross-platform and will run on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or newer, Windows XP Home or Pro, and Windows Vista (all versions). NowPublisher requires FileMaker Pro 10 or newer for each user, as well as FileMaker 8, 9, or 10 Server.
