Virtual data rooms, or VDRs, ease collaboration to reduce costs and speed up due diligence and negotiation in strategic transactions. Data rooms online allow companies to manage multiple deals at once by giving stakeholders digital access all documents related to M&A due diligence, post-merger integration, and other M&A-related processes.
Most of the time, VDRs are used to assist in the closing of financial transactions. A venture capitalist for instance, would have to look over the corporate documents and contracts of a start-up prior to closing an investment. This process of conducting due diligence requires a fast and secure storage space, as well as an application that allows sharing of these documents.
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) are a different example of the need for secure document management and storage. In the life sciences sector companies frequently join forces, collaborate, and raise money which require a lot of document exchange and protection of intellectual properties.
When you use an online data room to raise funds, you’ll avoid the hassle of having to exchange hard copies. You also ensure that sensitive information will not be exposed to hackers or other unwanted third parties. Furthermore, a VC can track how many times a specific document was seen and for the length of time. This allows them to analyze the processes and make better decisions regarding future investments. Digify creates dynamic watermarks for documents that display recipients’ email and IP addresses. This discourages unauthorised use and increases traceability.
