We’ve earned our reputation by constantly delivering best-in-class IP protection and escrow services that withstand the commercial stresses of today and tomorrow.
Independence - A founding principle of a specialist escrow agent is to remain neutral. It is important that your client’s escrow agent is experienced and an independent third party that is not under the influence or control of either the end-user or the vendor.
Burning software onto a CD, or storing backup tapes in a safe deposit box have been proven ineffective. A specialist escrow agent will have invested in state of the art software storage and management technology and will be able to provide verification services to ensure that the escrow deposits will perform when required.
Harbinger is an independent and neutral third party who can administer escrow arrangements on your behalf. We have invested in developing a state-of-the-art escrow management system that, combined with our verification services, is the preferred solution of some of Australia’s top businesses.
