Stock Performer Major Upgrade Launch

Berlin, 6th of July - After one year of work and a rewrite of almost every component of Stock Performer, we are proud to announce that a large set of new and exciting features will be available to our customers on the 26th of July.

After 4 years serving the most successful stock artists in the business, such as Andres Rodriguez, Monkey Business, Uberstock, Wavebreak, Pixdeluxe and many others, as well as agencies like Stocksy and Westend61, we have created a new version based on their very valuable feedback.

With this new version, Stock Performer will continue to be the tool of choice of today's most successful producers and we pride ourselves in making such useful technology available to any aspiring artist, both small and large, helping our customers make money in the competitive stock media market.

This upgrade's major new features include:

Image Recognition Technology: Stock Performer now uses accurate image recognition technology to automatically identify and aggregate files across any agencies you upload to. Stock Performer will know where you uploaded your files and how much the file made in total. All Stock Performer reports have been adapted to reflect your file's revenue independently from the agency on which it was made.

New Collection Management: Collections are now genuinely cross agency. Create them once and Stock Performer will use image recognition to pull sales data from all agencies. On top of that we have added many new collection management tools such as merging, copying and adding to multiple collections at once.

Redesigned Reports: Each report has been reviewed to best present the new cross agency sales data as well as offering new analysis options and features. Get a bird's eye view or drill down easily into the points which are important to you.
