Our Services

Many companies rely on third party supplied software applications to run their day to day operations. With this comes an element of operational risk as there is a dependency on third parties being able to support and maintain business critical software applications on a continuous basis. Using software escrow with an independent escrow agent is a prudent risk management practice that is a simple and effective arrangement specifically designed to minimise risk and protect the interests of all parties involved.
