Why escrow for technology ?
Do you earn your living with specific knowledge? And is that based on, for example, a formula, blueprint or a construction drawing?
Then you will not just give this (intellectual) property to customers.
But those customers may be hesitant to become too dependent on a knowledge supplier.
Technology escrow solves that problem.

How does escrow for technology work?
Our arrangements consist of 3 parts: the agreement, verification and the deposit.
First we determine the right agreement, a process that must be done with care as it is the legal basis of the whole arrangement.
After approval, our experts thoroughly verify the materials that go into the depot.
Is that over? Then the materials that go into the depot can be delivered.
We have automated that process, including material updates, using virtual machines and container technologies, among other things. An area in which we lead the way as an escrow agent.
The material is stored dually at various Dutch locations – both online and offline. Dual means it never comes together. These locations are of course secured according to the strictest standards.
In the meantime, you will receive 24/7 online status insight via My Escrow. The deposit remains up-to-date: this is an active escrow arrangement in which it is regularly renewed. Something that is made easy by our smart automation.
