How Are Virtual Data Rooms Used?

The most common use case for virtual data rooms is due to diligence during M&A transactions. In this scenario buyers require access to a lot of confidential documents. A virtual data room is a great option since buyers can’t visit the office of the seller in order to look over them. It allows both parties to review the documents without having to handle them physically or travel to see each the other.

A VDR can also enable companies to collaborate on projects that require confidential information. A company in the life sciences, for example could partner with an organization to develop new drugs or improve their existing product line. To protect their intellectual property, these companies must share confidential information with their partners in a secure environment.

In addition to security features such as watermarking, role-based access and virus scanning, best-in-class virtual data rooms offer advanced analytics and reporting options. These features allow administrators to track document activities and monitor user activity and ensure compliance.

The user-friendliness is an important aspect. Ideally the VDR should be accessible to both C-level executives as well as entry-level accountants and be easy to navigate. It should be a complete well-organized configuration and support for multiple devices. It should also allow for customization of the branding, logo the terms and conditions and general appearance of the data room. It should also support multilingual communication and have a task management system that does not require extra downloaded plugins.
