A virtual dataroom is useful in a variety business situations. It can be used by C-level executives to share data with service providers, investors or even external companies. It can also be used by HR departments to manage employee records or project managers who are involved in various aspects of operation. Whatever the reason an VDR with stringent security measures already in place can simplify a transaction and stop any unauthorized use of information.

The kind of data you’ll be uploading to your VDR will determine the features you require such as granular users authorizations and two-factor authentication. Make sure the software you’re considering is compatible with any other applications your company utilizes. This can help save time and effort if you’re in a position to integrate your VDR with tools like Salesforce or Slack.

When selecting the right VDR when choosing a VDR, you must consider how many users will be using the platform, as well as how much storage you’ll need. For instance, a few older providers still charge per page prices that can quickly grow and outstrip your budget. Other options are per user or a set monthly fee.

There’s also a new breed of modern VDR providers who leverage technology innovations and efficient Software-as-a-Service delivery models to offer professional-grade document control, security and support at a fraction of the price of legacy providers. iDeals for instance and Securedocs both feature intuitive easy interfaces that are suitable for small- and medium-sized businesses. They are ISO-compliant and offer clear pricing without the need for hidden charges or contracts.
