Jan Aleman Quoted in SD TIMES Article

Jan Aleman discusses escrow in a recent SD TIMES article.

An excerpt:

But when a successful SaaS provider is acquired by a larger company, the results can also cause software or services to vanish.

Jan Aleman, CEO of SaaS provider Servoy, said that “if you have 100 customers paying US$5 a month for the product, then you’re in a different situation. Whoever is cleaning up the leftovers may say, ‘This revenue stream is so low, we’ll let it collapse and be done with it.’”
