Examples of Virtual Data Rooms


Whatever field that you are working in, you’ll have to deal with a lot of different files. The management of these documents using physical files is unproductive and time-consuming. It takes longer to read printed documents and you’re more vulnerable to unauthorized access. A virtual dataroom (VDR) allows authorized parties to access and review documents remotely. It improves collaboration between teams across the globe and eliminates geographic barriers. It also reduces risk of unauthorized entry and allows strict compliance measures.

When choosing a VDR, look for one with advanced features designed to address the specific needs of your company. You’ll want a provider that has drag-and-drop and bulk upload capabilities as well as support different formats of files. Look for a virtual space that has an advanced search tool that can find and index the text contained in files.

VDRs can be used to automate workflows processes, workflows and processes in-process. For example, they can grant permissions based on the user’s function. They can also track every document that is opened by authorized users, revealing when and how many times the document was downloaded or viewed.

Look for a provider with mobile apps that can be used on all platforms and don’t require plugins or additional software to be installed. Also, you should consider a service that supports multilingual support in order to meet the needs of users of different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. The last thing to do is ensure that your VDR has audit trails which will track all actions undertaken by users using the virtual data rooms, including when they entered the platform and exited the platform, what documents they downloaded or viewed, and their IP addresses.
