Source Code Escrow Type Protection for non-software

I am brainstorming ideas for a supplier contract where I want to ensure the technology and services to be provided by the supplier for resale to our end-customer over a long term contract do not disappear, either through supplier insolvency or acquisition. If this were a software deal, I'd ask for source code escrow from the supplier. What would an equivalent level of protection be for a hardware/services solution?

Interesting point, Michelle.

I´d strongly encourage you to raise this question also within the IACCM technology network, which is a micro-community, where you will be able to get insights to new trends in this specific field and where I am sure you´ll have the opportunity to share ideas regarding the topic you have brought:


Also, please check our library: www.iaccm.com/resources/
where, you will find some articles about 'escrow agreements' for the software arena and other topics associated with risk management in the hardware world as well. By analogy you will explore ideas regarding hardware coming from best practices and escrow programs with the goal of risk mitigation


Best regards
