Setting Up Your Data Room

The creation of a data room is an important step to ensure a successful project. The user interface, file type and size limitations, as well as storage are the most important aspects to take into consideration. Also, look into compliance features and what kind of auditability you can expect from the service. Compliance features can help reduce the risk of fines and legal actions. They may even result in the closing of your company.

How well the data room is organized and indexed is another consideration. How effectively files are grouped and named, and in what format they are uploaded to will greatly impact how easily they can be located later. For instance, separating text documents into PDF format, and financial documents into Excel will simplify viewing and editing the files. It could also be helpful to include the date of upload and other pertinent information in the name of a file or folder.

Keeping an updated data room will keep you and your investors safe from losing time, especially in the case of due diligence or a possible deal. It will also show you respect transparency and communication with investors seriously, increasing trustworthiness in the process.

When choosing a platform, ensure that it has the ability to grant granular permissions. This allows you to limit the types of files users are able to view and download. Also, make sure that your provider can secure files for storage and transmission, which will add to the security of your project. Other features that increase security include a timeout feature that is adjustable and ends a user’s session at the specified time, if the user is not logged out. Multi-factor authentication is another feature that can enhance security.
