What Is Virtual Data Room Software?

Virtual data room software helps streamline the processes of day-to-day business operations and special projects. It does this by centralizing all data related to organizing the process of communicating, coordinating, and delegating. It also offers high-level security for sensitive records and documents. It is vital to establish clear guidelines for how individuals and teams can use the VDR. A clear and defined process for collaboration, file sharing and storage will ensure that the investment you make in the solution is well worth it.

Some of the most popular virtual data rooms provide granular document access permissions along with streamlined file handling using email, OCR, translation, a dashboard with robust overviews and NDA pop-ups. They also provide activity reports, NDA popups and centralized dashboards. Some are designed specifically for M&A with features such as secure fence view and audit trails. Others provide auto-indexing for file structures and folders, and unlimited user account.

Choosing the right virtual data room option is contingent on the size of your company and the type of transaction. A variety of tools is available which is why it’s important to look through review sites for software to read about other users’ experiences. It’s important to avoid review sites that offer paid vendor reviews.

Google Drive is a free cloud storage solution that can be sufficient for smaller companies. It has plenty of storage space as well as basic file-sharing capabilities plus a collaborative suite of programs for Word PowerPoint and Sheets. Microsoft OneDrive, Box, and GitHub are all free alternatives. Cloud-based solutions such as DealRoom, which is a VDR with all the features at lower costs is a great choice for larger businesses.
