Sales 2 Business is made to monetize existing content archives or continuously generated new content.

It's main focus is a B2B content shop portal. Registered users can browse for content, can preview the available asset packages and collect content of interest within a shopping card. Upon checkout a negotiation process between seller and buyer is handled via system internal communication.

Upon a mutual agreement the purchased asset packages are delivered out to the customer. To do so media essence files (video, audio, subtitles, pictures) and metadata (short and long description, structur, rights, pricing) can be aggregated to an asset package that is complete for publishing or playout. Alternatively ready to go packages can be uploaded.

Deliver is based on FlowWorks Flow Center.
