contingency & business continuity

  • We can activate an escrow service on your account which means that in the event that Makerble is no longer able to support or provide its software-as-a-service, our escrow provider will continue to provide the service.

  • The default arrangement is a one year provision of service so that you can continue with business as usual while you decide whether to use the Makerble source code to continue running the software yourself or switch to another provider.
