There are a variety of factors to take into consideration when it comes time to perform due diligence. The possibility of accessing documents from the same time from a central location is essential and allows interested parties to review the documents at any time they wish. A virtual dataroom is a great solution to this. It also helps reduce the cost of printing, storage and courier services if documents had to be sent in physical form.
If you’re selecting a service provider, be sure they offer a trial time so that you can test the system before signing any contracts. You will be able to try the system out and see how it is easy to navigate. Make sure they provide 24/7 support via email and phone. A good company will provide support in multiple languages, making it easier for international users.
Another factor to consider is the ease of uploading and downloading. Most providers allow drag-and drop of multiple files to upload simultaneously. This lets you upload multiple documents at the same time making it easier to upload them all at once, reducing the need to manually add each document. They also provide granular settings for permissions and the option to remove a document’s access even if it has already been downloaded.
Finally, you should search for a company that offers an interactive Q&A feature which allows users to ask next questions and receive answers from other users in real time. This can help accelerate due diligence and also close deals quicker by addressing any issues that clients might have.
