The MLC Unveils New Supplemental Matching Network


The MLC to collaborate with five complementary service providers to enhance existing data matching processes.


NASHVILLE, TNThe Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) announces a new Supplemental Matching Network initially consisting of five companies that will provide data matching services to complement and enhance The MLC’s existing matching processes and capabilities.

The services offered by the participating vendors will supplement The MLC's existing internal capabilities, as well as the services already being provided by The MLC's existing vendors. The MLC may adjust the scope of services in the Supplemental Matching Network as needed to meet future and evolving needs, including engaging additional vendors in the future if appropriate.

The MLC’s Supplemental Matching Network will initially include Blokur, Jaxsta, Pex, Salt and SX Works, a SoundExchange company. To select these vendors, The MLC completed an assessment that included both qualitative evaluations through a Request for Information and subsequent quantitative testing through pilot programs. This comprehensive selection process aligned with the approach The MLC has employed when evaluating other strategic vendors.

“We conducted an extensive due diligence process to select the initial set of vendors for our Supplemental Matching Network,” says Andrew Mitchell, Head of Analytics & Automation at The MLC. “These vendors bring complementary technologies and capabilities that can be effectively leveraged to serve our members. This network reflects our ongoing commitment to evolve in innovative ways to best achieve The MLC’s mission.”
