Choosing a Data Room for Due Diligence

A data room allows both parties to a business transaction to look over business-critical documentation in an online repository. It is usually used to perform due diligence during M&As however it is also useful for equity and fundraising, IPOs bankruptcy proceedings and other transactions that may affect the reputation or finances of one of the parties.

The most effective virtual data rooms are secure and simple to use. They offer granular control over access rights, based on the roles and levels of the document/folder. They also offer detailed activity logs that make compliance reporting easy. They provide a variety of options, including scroll-through document views, adaptive interfaces, and multilingual setups which allow users to work with any device or operating system.

When selecting a data room to conduct due diligence, choose one with a large storage capacity. This will allow you to meet all of your company’s requirements. Text documents will take up less space than high-res images or technical drawings, however the amount you require will depend on the number and variety of files you need to be uploaded and stored.

Be sure to check if the application offers advanced tools such as e-signature or granular annotation or commenting. These tools can help speed up the process of due diligence and make it easier to close deals. They can also be useful for other projects in which you need to review several files simultaneously or share notes with colleagues. In these cases it is essential that documents be printed and saved as PDFs.
