This characteristic is usually seen in the number of tools offered by the company, such as multilingual search (about 16 languages), OCR, file preview, smart AI categories and translation of documents. A reputable provider should offer a variety of viewing options that allow users to browse documents without or with their own formatting.
A reputable company will employ the highest encryption level to ensure the security of confidential data. They should also offer an all-hours, multilingual helpline and have dedicated customer service managers that can help with the project’s start-up, best practices implementation and speedy due diligence processes.
Some providers, for example, offer the option to synchronize desktops using shared folders, FTP and the virtual data room. This makes it simple to upload or download any file. Some also have an automatic naming system which makes it easier to organize and find files. You can also assign different access rights to view print, view, and secure PDF download. The most reliable vendors will also let you customize watermarks. These display the user’s name, IP address, as well as date and time of viewing a document.
A good VDR should include built-in NDAs that are automatically applied to all users in order to prevent any unauthorised disclosure of personal information. It should also come with an auditing system that allows users to examine the details of what was done (documents and users), when and how.
