DealRoom Data Room review

DealRoom is a project management platform designed to make the merger and acquisition (M&A) experience comfortable and smooth. It was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Chicago. Since then, DealRoom has expanded its expertise to include real estate, IPO, renewable energy, finance, legal, technology, and oil and gas companies.

DealRoom has designed software for different purposes to satisfy all possible needs, including due diligence, post-merger integration, project management, deal management, pipeline management, and deal flow. 

Though most of the solutions offered by DealRoom are necessary for medium and large-sized businesses, small enterprises can also find their services helpful but expensive. One is the DealRoom virtual data room (VDR) to store, share, and collaborate on documents safely. This solution is known for its efficiency and low cost because the company offers flat-rate plans instead of per-page pricing. 

DealRoom pricing varies depending on file storage capacity, reporting availability, integrations, and other elements. So, you can choose between Pipeline Only and Single Project options or order a tailored solution for your team. The price also depends on the payment period: customers can pay monthly, but the company offers discounts for annual plans. Additionally, larger volumes of data may be less expensive if you discuss your case with the support team.

What’s more, you don’t need to buy a full package right off the bat. DealRoom offers you an opportunity to test the waters with a free demo. While setting up, their team will learn more about your needs to personalize your demo to highlight the advantages DealRoom software can offer your company.

Deployment

Because the DealRoom data room is cloud-based, you can easily access it from anywhere with only an internet connection.  However, there is no desktop version, but the app is compatible with all operating systems.

Other advantages of the cloud architecture include continuous data backup and multi-level permission options. The former makes it possible to restore lost data while the latter helps to ensure that only authorized personnel access specific files.

Additionally, the DealRoom VDR interface is intuitive and consistent across all devices. Its features include drag-and-drop upload, full-text search, and creating a team communication system without external software.

Deployment:
  • Web-access
  • iOS
  • Android

Support

The DealRoom team offers excellent 24/7 customer service for answering user questions. For urgent requests, there’s a hotline or chat function on their website. 

Uncommon proposals or a query to evaluate your project price can be sent by email. In addition, the team has created a Contact Us Now form, which prompts you to include all necessary details to get your personalized demo.

Furthermore, DealRoom resources help you navigate through software options. For example, the collection of Playbooks explains how to start the transition of workflows and use all available features to maximize their benefits. 

The Resource Library has tons of helpful information on the risks for M&A processes and tips to avoid them using DealRoom tools. And, of course, the company has an FAQ section to help resolve common issues.

Security

DealRoom provides various tools to protect data from hackers and data loss due to technical factors or human error. In addition, the team has stepped beyond standard security practices and keeps customers’ data safe with methods such as:

  • ID protocol and two-factor authentication. Each user has a unique login and password. Moreover, employees and administrators must use two-factor authentication to log in.
  • Monitoring and reporting. Administrators can track users’ login time, location,  devices used, and detailed file activity.
  • Control of document permissions. The data room’s admin controls file access and can limit users’ ability to download, edit, or view particular sections of a document. 
  • Watermarking. Users can add a watermark to ensure that someone will not use or sell their file.
  • Encrypted and protected data. The software uses 256-bit AES data encryption to secure all data, including files, communication, and private information.
  • Data siloing in private cloud servers. Multiple parties can use private cloud servers to store appropriate data simultaneously. Fortunately, this feature ensures that information is not mistakenly shared with unauthorized personnel.
  • Data backup and accident recovery. Thanks to daily automatic backup, the team can restore all data in case of hardware failure or human error.
  • Privacy laws standards. The software adheres to data privacy law standards, while a global storage network ensures compliance with regional requirements. From a technical side, distributed content node architecture guarantees this compliance.
