Escrow London is the software escrow division of DataSpace UK Ltd. The company was established in 1999 just outside Manchester and has grown to become one of the UK’s largest information management companies.
Our journey begins back in 1999 when Paul Trevor established DataSpace UK in Northwich just outside Manchester in the UK. Paul grew DataSpace UK to become a leading information management and data storage company with a team of over 40 staff.
Evan Lever and Anthony Harris, both originally from Australia, are the founders of Databank, a leading data storage and software escrow company. With a powerful team, over a period of 13 years, they grew DataBank to a sizeable business protecting the source code and data of many of the world’s most notable organisations including companies such as Citi Group, HSBC, Alcatel, IBM, Ikea and AIG to name a few. Evan and Anthony sold DataBank and set their eyes on the global software escrow market and relocated to London.
Meeting of minds.
With a deep expertise in international software escrow, Evan and Anthony teamed up with Paul who has intimate local knowledge of the UK data protection market and created the software escrow division of DataSpace.
The business model was simple; To provide a breath of fresh air to a market that had a reputation for being inflexible, stale and old-school by providing a world class software escrow service that was more flexible with fair and transparent fees without compromising on quality.
Our offering was so successful that in early 2016, we established a subsidiary company, Escrow London Limited to focus entirely on offering our world class escrow service.
Today we service hundreds of companies across the UK, USA, Middle East, Africa and beyond. Our wide mix of customers include major banks, insurance firms, technology companies and software start-ups.
In July 2018, Escrow London was awarded a UK government framework agreement under the G-Cloud 10 platform. This major achievement recognises the innovative escrow solutions that we provide backed up by our serious accreditations approved by the UK government.
We are a breath of fresh air to the software escrow industry, so how can you feel comfortable that your data is in safe hands?
We believe if you have entrusted us with your software escrow agreement and source code that it is our responsibility to look after it personally and in house.
We are proponents of “seeing is believing” – that is why we are the only software escrow vendor that actively invites all current and potential clients to visit and inspect the storage facilities for themselves.
