Virtual data rooms can be utilized in a variety situations to facilitate secure document sharing without the need for a large physical facility. The most common VDR use is for due diligence during mergers and acquisitions. However, they can also be utilized to share documents with clients, business partners as well as other stakeholders.

For M&A deals, a virtual data room is ideal because it allows both sellers and potential buyers to examine documents in one location without exposing sensitive information or committing a breach. Investment bankers also utilize VDRs for sharing confidential documents with their clients and other stakeholders during M&A or capital raising processes. Technology companies make use of them to share design projects and manufacturing data with teams across the globe. Consultants utilize them to discover trends in big data that can be used to inform company strategy.

A VDR can also cut down on M&A costs by cutting down on printing and travel, and by giving access to documents much more quickly than could be the case with a physical repository. Additionally, it is easy to customize the storage structure to meet the needs of every project and to provide restricted access on a document-by -document basis.

Users can access VDRs via their web browsers, so they can access documents from any location with internet access. Administrators can view complete reports on user activity including who viewed which documents, when, and where. This provides insight that may not be available in physical storage, where access logs can only tell you what’s being visited and by whom.
