Setting Up Your Data Room

Setting Up Your Data Room

The creation of a data room is an important step to ensure the success of your project. The user interface, file type and size limits, as well as storage are among the most important factors to be considered. Also, you should look into the features that are compliant and what kind of auditability you can expect from the service. Compliance features lower the chance of being fined, legal action, or even the shut-down of your business.

Another aspect to consider is how the data rooms are organized and indexed. How files are organized and named and in what format are uploaded will have a major impact on the ease with which they can later be found. Separating text documents into Excel and financial documents into PDF makes it easier to read and edit the files. It can also be helpful to include the date of upload along with other pertinent information in name of the file or folder.

Keeping an updated data room will save you and your investors time, particularly in the case of due diligence or a potential deal. It will also demonstrate that you value investor communication integrity, transparency and trust seriously.

When choosing a provider, make sure the platform offers granular permissions settings which allow you to limit the files users are able to see and download. Also, ensure that your service can secure files for storage and transmission, which will add to the security of your project. Other features that enhance security include a timeout that can be set to be a variable duration. It ends a user’s session at an amount of time in the event that the user fails to log out. Multi-factor authentication is another feature that can increase security.
