The market-leading Escrow Agreement System Solution

Most agreements relating to the purchase of specific service include the supplier/provider failure clause. In the event of a failure, the provider also named Depositor undertakes to provide the end customer also named Beneficiary with the required elements to guarantee continuity and maintenance of the software or system support.

The implementation of an Escrow Agreement, also called escrow contract, clarifies the roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder, as well as the contractual commitments and verification steps that will be performed throughout the duration of the contract.

An Escrow Agreement consists in depositing with a third party (specialized company, escrow agent, such as Continew) sources, plans, designs, procedures allowing to reconstitute or rebuild a specific system or product.

This deposit is recommended for highly technical and long-life systems and equipments. Drawing up an Escrow Agreement 3P Contrat is particularly suited for most industrial fields. Its use makes it possible to effectively protect and guarantee specific digital assets.

Supplier risk management

When a Beneficiary company uses an external supplier or Depositor , the following 6 items must be checked to assess the level of supplier risk control:

In practical terms, the supplier Depositor deposits the constituent elements of the electronic application concerned (source codes, documents, technical files and so on) – for which he/she retains intellectual property – in order to ensure that the end user Beneficiary has access to them in cases previously defined in the release provisions of the contract or agreement.

- Does the contract include supplier failure provisions?

- Are release provisions to access the repository consistent with the organization’s costs and deadlines?

- Have source codes and technical data been deposited?

- Who verified that the deposit was complete and flawless?

- When was the last update carried out?

- Who is accountable to the company for the possible reuse of files?

These questions are precisely what the escrow agreement or 3P Contract provides answers to. The documents of the escrow (also called Deposit) are kept by Continew and provide both parties, customer and supplier, all the guarantees required as to access options in the contract.
