Frequently Asked Question

What is a data room?
A data room is a space used for housing corporate documents, usually of a secure or privileged nature. It can take the form of either a physical room or an online virtual space. A data room can be used for a variety of different purposes, but typically for M&A due diligence after signing a non-disclosure agreement.
What is a virtual data room?
A virtual data room (VDR) is an online space to serve the same purpose as a traditional data room. Unlike a physical data room which contains paper documents usually in binders, a VDR is a virtual depository for indexed digital folders and documents. A VDR can gives managers better control over the documents and is accessible to multiple groups of users back-to-back at the same time.
What is due diligence?
Due Diligence is a process of seeking and reviewing information about every aspect of a business entity in order to assess the risks and the true value of the contemplated business deal.
How can Docutone accelerate due diligence?
Using a virtual data room to share the sensitive corporate documents during the complex due diligence process has become a norm for international M&A practitioners. Docutone VDR not only will minimize the business travels and reduce the production of paper documents needed for performing the due diligence, it will also substantially accelerate the due diligence process and keep every sensitive document under your strict control throughout its lifecycle.
Why do you need a virtual data room like Docutone instead of cloud-based storage system?

Cloud-based storage systems (such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive) and virtual data rooms have a lot in common. Both are cloud-based document storage and sharing platforms. But they serve different purposes.

A cloud-based storage system would be a good choice if you just want to share some articles or homework with your fellow schoolmates. But if you work on a M&A deal and have a lot of sensitive due diligence documents to share with potential buyers, you’d better choose a virtual data room like Docutone, as cloud-based storage systems will never give you the level of security and control over the sensitive documents that a VDR would do.

Why use a virtual data room, such as Docutone, for the M&A industry?

As part of the due diligence process in a typical M&A deal, sellers need to disclose large volumes of due diligence documents to buyers. Many of these documents are confidential in nature and must be kept securely even if after they are made available to buyers.

With the bank grade security and rich and yet easy to use features, Docutone VDR allows you to grant, track and rescind document permissions at any time to ensure users will only access to documents the way they are permitted. Docutone VDR also allows you to permit and streamline questions raised by buyers and prepare answers securely and efficiently.

What to look out for when choose a virtual data room for your M&A deal?

Not all VDRs are the same. If you want to choose one for your M&A deal, consider the following criteria:

Security. Security is obviously of the utmost importance when choosing a VDR. Make sure the VDR is hosted on certified data centers and all data/documents are encrypted in their full lifecycle no matter they are in transmit, in use or at rest.

Easy to Use.  You will need a VDR to have all the features you need to keep all the document access and permissions under your control. And yet it should be intuitive and easy to use without steep learning curve.

Analytics & Reporting. You will want to look for a VDR that is capable of both keeping track of data on all users, activities and documents within the data room and generating valuable insights.

Customer Support.  You will also want to find out whether the VDR has in place a responsive customer support. A good customer support should be in local languages and should be 7 X 24.

Compliance. Last but not the least, the VDR you consider for your deal should meet regulatory compliance requirements, such as privacy protection under PIPL, GDPR and CCPA and data migration restrictions under China’s Data Security Law.

What is VDR Q&A for?

VDR Q&A is a feature built in the VDR that allows designated VDR users to ask project related questions and receive answers.

VDR Q&A is essential to the management of questions and answers during the due diligence process of M&A deals. It will not only help you to streamline buyers’ questions but also help sellers respond accurately and efficiently to buyers’ questions.

What’s the best way to manage Q&A?

A full-fledged Q&A session could lead to high volume of questions that need to be managed, tracked and answered timely and carefully.

Traditionally these questions and answers were exchanged between buyers and sellers in Excel spreadsheets, which was inefficient and messy.

Docutone VDR introduces integrated Q&A to help centralize questions and respond to buyers safely and efficiently.

What can Docutone do for you?
Docutone supports every aspect of your document needs in the M&A due diligence process. We cover your due diligence document collection, sharing as well as analytical reporting based on users’ behaviors.
