FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Houston, TX, Monday, May 18th, 2009

EPS Software Corp. announces the launch of its new subsidiary called Tower 48 Inc., a High-Tech Software Escrow company. Tower 48 is a joint venture between EPS Software Corp. and its founder, renowned software industry expert, and publisher of CODE Magazine: Markus Egger and various other software and legal experts.

Tower 48’s unique escrow process is completely digital, offering a simple, fast, and secure way to deposit all types of digital assets (files) into escrow and add beneficiaries. Tower 48 provides a much more cost effective way to escrow assets, by eliminating most fees normally associated with escrow, and slashing the main escrow fees to a fraction of competitor’s fees.

Unlike traditional escrow companies, Tower 48 provides ways to deposit and release escrowed assets in an entirely digital fashion, allowing both depositors and beneficiaries to perform all requires tasks through a secure web site. No fees or expenses are associated with updating or verifying escrow. All parties involved are able to verify escrowed assets at any time, without violating escrow agreements, or accidental release of escrowed assets or trade secrets.

Tower 48 also enables direct integration of the escrow process into eCommerce systems, effectively enabling vendors to roll out software escrow on a large scale and at a very small expense to all parties involved. Tower 48’s flexible fee structure enables software escrow on any scale, regardless of whether the software is priced at 99 cents, or $500,000. Furthermore, Tower 48 enables direct integration into escrow services from development environments such as Visual Studio, Team System, or Eclipse. This allows for seamless integration of the escrow process into the development and deployment process without any overhead.

Tower 48 offers various fee schedules including a simple “5/5/5” schedule that allows vendors to deposit up to 5 projects, with 5 beneficiaries, and 5GB of data for less than $1 per day ($29.95 per month) to customized schedules that even allows vendors to keep up to two thirds of the escrow fee as the vendor’s profit.

About Software Escrow
Escrow is the process of depositing assets with an impartial third party to guarantee the release of those assets under certain circumstances to a beneficiary. Software Escrow is this process applied to computer software (or other digital assets and files). Typically, a software vendor puts software (and associated source code or internal documentation) into escrow, so a customer can benefit from it in case the vendor goes out of business or ends support for the product. Exact release conditions may vary widely depending on the exact escrow agreement. The Tower 48 escrow process is optimized towards software escrow. However, it can also be used for all kinds of other digital escrow, such as the escrow of digital rights free (“DRM-free”) versions of digital rights managed files such as music, videos, or e-books.
