In today’s technology driven world, businesses rely on software applications to carry out core business functions and processes. However, assuming that software suppliers will always be available to provide support and maintenance carries an element of risk.

JAC’s long and successful track-record means that we expect to be here for years to come but often governance requires that risks, no matter how small, need to be addressed.

Global information assurance provider NCC Group provides escrow and verification services to assure the long-term availability of business critical software applications for end users. An escrow solution is a simple arrangement designed to mitigate risk and protect all parties involved in the development, supply and use of business critical software.

Currently the NCC Group protects over 9,000 business critical software applications under comprehensive escrow agreements, on the behalf of licensees worldwide. In the event that a supplier is unable to support and maintain a product following a merger, acquisition, legal dispute or insolvency, under the escrow agreement both the end user and supplier are protected.

JAC has partnered with the NCC Group to offer our customers business continuity protection through an escrow agreement. Under the terms of JAC’s escrow agreement, the company will supply the NCC Group with the latest version of the JAC source code which they will hold on behalf of its customers. This will be updated regularly to ensure the source code held is always up to date and reflects the current version of the JAC application.

Through the partnership with the NCC Group, JAC is delivering software solutions that meet its client’s key business requirements while building strong relationships based on trust and delivery. JAC is committed to help ensure the long term performance and availability of the pharmacy and e-prescribing software to ultimately ensure business continuity.
