Chris Smith, PRAXIS Technology Escrow
Chris Smith is the Founder and CEO of PRAXIS Technology Escrow. PRAXIS Technology Escrow offers automated software escrow protection for business critical software and SaaS applications. PRAXIS leveraged more than 20 years of industry experience to reinvent software escrow services because today, all businesses rely upon technology (on premise, cloud, mobile & more) for business critical functions which must continue even if the vendor fails. This is what inspired the PRAXIS team to envision the new technology escrow experience that removes the risks associated with relying upon technology regardless of the platform. The entire PRAXIS experience is designed to address needs from end to end, with customizable agreements, dedicated customer service, and best in class protections. Our goal is to allow businesses to effectively rely upon technology while knowing that their future is secure. Technology escrow services should both give you confidence and fit seamlessly into your business process.
