There are a myriad of aspects to consider when it comes to conduct due diligence. The possibility of accessing documents from an accessible location is essential and allows people who are interested to read the documents whenever they want. A virtual dataroom is an excellent solution for this. It also helps to reduce the cost of storage, printing and courier services that would be necessary if physical documents were to be sent.
If you are choosing a provider make sure they offer a free trial to ensure you can try the system before signing an agreement. This will give you an opportunity to see how it is easy to set up and navigate your project. You should also ensure whether they provide 24/7 support via phone and email. A reputable provider will offer support in various languages to ensure a smooth experience for international customers.
Another thing to take into consideration is the ease of file uploading and downloading. The most efficient services allow users to upload multiple files at a time using drag-and-drop features. This lets you upload multiple files at once, saving time and eliminating the need to manually upload each document. They also provide granular settings for permissions as well as the ability to remove a document’s access even if it has already been downloaded.
Additionally, you should look for a service that has an interactive Q&A function that allows users to ask questions and receive answers from other users in real time. This can accelerate due diligence and help close deals faster by addressing issues that your clients may have.
