Data Rooms for Due Diligence

A data room is an electronic space which is secured to store sensitive and confidential documents. These are often used for due diligence in business transactions, IPOs, and court proceedings. Data rooms are also utilized by companies that must collaborate on projects that are shared with several parties.

In the past physical data rooms were the most common method for conducting due diligence during a transaction. They were expensive and required an extensive amount of planning to coordinate meetings in-person. Due diligence is easier and faster when using the use of a virtual room. A virtual dataroom is a cloud-based tool for sharing files which allows users to access files from anywhere around the world, without requiring an in-person meeting. Virtual data rooms have advanced features like document tracking along with version control and simple collaboration.

If you’re planning the merger and acquisition process or raising capital, getting all the necessary people in one place to review and sign documents is key. It can be frustrating and time-consuming, as well as inefficient. Email is notoriously chaotic method of sharing documents. With increasing phishing attacks it is more imperative than ever to adopt a more due diligence process.
