A virtual data room, also known as a VDR, streamlines collaboration, reduces costs, makes it easier to organize and speeds due diligence and negotiations in strategic transactions. Online data rooms help companies to manage multiple deals at the same time by providing stakeholders with digital access to 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 facilitate the completion of financial transactions. A venture capital firm for instance, will have to look over the corporate documents and contracts of a start-up before closing an investment. This process of conducting due diligence requires a fast and secure storage space as well as a platform that permits sharing of such documents.
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) are a different example of the necessity for reliable document management and storage. Additionally, companies operating in the life science industry regularly combine or join forces with each other and raise funds, which also require a large number of document exchanges, as well as the protection of intellectual property.
Using an online data room for fundraising can eliminate the hassle of physically transferring hard copies. It also guarantees that sensitive information isn’t accessible to hackers and other unwanted third parties. A VC can also monitor how many times the document has been viewed and how long. This allows them to study the process and make better choices about future investments. Digify adds dynamic watermarks on documents that display recipients’ email addresses and IP addresses. This discourages unauthorised use and increases traceability.
