How to Set Up a Virtual Data Room

por arazi

Virtual data rooms are an efficient way to share information with third parties during due diligence or other M&A transactions. However, how effective this solution is is contingent on the way it’s implemented and used.

Choose a VDR service that has been designed with serious sharing in mind. It should have a wide selection of tools that allow users to upload and share documents in bulk. It should allow administrators to create folders and indexes quickly. It should also come with an advanced search feature that allows users to locate documents. The provider should allow users to print and download PDF files that have watermarks. Admins must be able track the time that documents are printed as well as downloaded.

Check if a vendor offers only one-time transactions or an annual subscription when you choose the vendor. An annual subscription offers greater flexibility and lower cost of ownership. It also reduces the chance of unexpected price increases during the term of the contract.

A quality VDR will support multiple browsers and platforms including Mac and Linux. It should also work with any file format. Additionally it should be able to alter the appearance and feel of the virtual data room by using personal branding.

Make sure the VDR has strong security features that block the unauthorized access of data. The service provider could, for instance, provide multi-factor authentication as well as impersonation of the user. It should also allow administrators to set a session timeout, which will shut down users’ sessions if they are inactive for a set amount of time.
