A data room is a digital space that is secure and safe for confidential documents. They are used to carry out due diligence in business transactions, IPOs and court proceedings. Data rooms are also used by companies that need to collaborate on projects shared by several parties.
In the past physical rooms were the most popular way to conduct due-diligence during an transaction. These were expensive and required lots of planning to coordinate meetings in-person. With the help of a virtual room due diligence can be completed faster and more efficient. A virtual data room is a cloud-based file sharing tool that allows users to access files from any location in the world, without the need for an in-person meeting. A virtual dataroom has advanced features like document tracking and control of version. It also permits simple collaboration.
If you’re planning the merger and acquisition process or raising capital, getting all the necessary people in the same place to sign and review documents is crucial. It can be frustrating, time-consuming and inefficient. Email is notoriously unorganized way to send documents, and with attacks from phishing on the rise it’s more crucial than like it ever to switch to the right method of due diligence.
