Pros

I have been using SecureDocs to share information with potential partners and have found both great customer service and seamless ease of use.
Great product, excellent data transparency & warm service.
Given the huge volume of data the software work great and would highly recommend.

Pros

We used the procurement capabilities for a large scale complex RFP. Very strong audit capabilities, ability to see level of engagement from the market extremely helpful.
Very happy with its ease of use and the support from over the ditch (I love Australia...).
I am very comfortable with this software since we have been using it for a while. The added security features is a nice touch that some other options dont have.

Cons

You can't view mail attachments through the software. This does not let you to restrict access to 'view only.
Nothing that I would consider a real negative.
When we needed to choose VDR solution the main problem was that most competitors does not publish pricing on their websites.

Cons

Unable to see what is the total data usage so we are not sure when we are charged for the extra data used previously.
Not intuitive, expensive for what you get, many individuals have complained about not being able to see PDF's due to settings the software requires each user to make on their computers.
There is no search function to find if a particular email has been invited or logged on as guests till we try to the invitation.

Review of Ansarada

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am using Ansarada Virtual Data Room for M&A processes.

Pros

Ease of use; Various functionality to ensure confidentiality; Ability to set up different groups and subgroups.

Cons

Drawbacks of enabling certain functionality not clearly explained e.g. 1. enabling security setting for word doc will require dataroom users to download additional microsoft software to be able to view the documents. 2. enabling certain pdf security setting will require viewers have internet access when viewing the document even after the docs have been downloaded and saved down.

We use the data room to share information with potential investors. The overall experience is positive.

Pros

Its a market leading platform with appropriate features and functionality. Some minor functionality tweaks required for a more efficient process.

Cons

(1) Need to upgrade feature for removing teams - currently need to remove individuals within a team before removing the team. (2) Need to make navigating of security/access options for each team more obvious. Its an important feature that is somewhat difficult to use when dealing with multiple parties.

CuroNZ's data room

Reviewed 2 years ago

Very happy with its ease of use and the support from over the ditch (I love Australia...)

Pros

The Ansarada team has always been very helpful in the unlikely event(s) of encountering slight glitches. The novel redaction tool is really simple to use and extremely helpful for due diligence purposes.

Cons

Personally, I would like to see that the whole data room could be easily copied into a cloud for future reference.

Review of the Ansarada system

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are using Ansarada data room as a way of sharing information with prospective investors seeking to undertake due diligence on our fund products. It has provided a safe way to share documents.

Pros

I like the ease of navigating and bulk downloads. We also like how we can track users activity in our data room and get good analytics in that regard.

Cons

I find that naming / renaming files can be a bit arduous. E.g. when uploading files we have to name them to look consistent with others.

Flawed audit trails

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Ease of use. Nice design. Good customer support.

Cons

Audit trials do not work properly. When deleting users or documents, the corresponding audit trails get lost. This is a major flaw for a core function of a data room.

Q&A

Good support, only issues is as mentioned above.

Pros

Good UX, mostly clear to use and functional

Cons

Q&A - Intralinks and various other data room operators have the ability to ask questions on behalf of 3rd parties, this is seriously helpful where they need the questions processed quickly or may not yet have full access to the data room. To counter this, I've had to make a fake account on behalf of a 3rd party to process questions in the past, which is an issue. Further, the fact that you need to...

Professional, lots of possibilities

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was very pleased with the overall experience, so were our potential investors. It takes some 'getting used to' to run the data room as an administrator but the instruction videos help. There are a lot of security features, sometimes too many: this makes it safe, but not always intuitive. I have already recommended Ansarada to another company and would be happy to do it again.

Pros

Clear representation of documents present in the dataroom. Automatic numbering was useful too. I appreciated the option of making groeps of people with defined rights (read, edit, print, download, etc.). The helpdesk was always very quick to answer questions efficiently. Easy to use for the clients, none of them complained about difficulty to access the database. The possibility to generate reports showing who-accessed-what was very valuable.

Cons

There are so many security features in terms of enabling publication of documents, that it is easy to forget to open a gate and thus provide access to a financier.

Extra features

Reviewed 3 years ago

It was a great experience. We have used intralinks previously and it is MUCH easier to navigate and coordinate. I am very happy to have a phone call with someone to share my teams ideas. However overall we loved it!

Pros

I love the ease of use and the online help pages. Really saved having to watch long YouTube clips or call up (like intralinks!)

Cons

Sometimes it was challenging and long to see what had happened to the data room. We had many buyer teams and a large internal and found the activity data difficult to use in the sense of seeing what was relevant. It would be fantastic if ansarada could develop a activity home page which shows activity of members in chronological order. (Almost like a social media feed...) I remember having a team...

Data rooms done right

Reviewed 3 years ago

Always a good experience - the customer support is excellent, and always highly responsive.

Pros

Software is easy to use, and makes customising multiple 'data rooms' for different potential investors easy.

Cons

The pricing model has changed recently which took some explaining to our clients when the price went up.

Weak customer service and a competitive price product

Reviewed 2 years ago

When there was a change in cost of the plan, understand an email was sent. NO RM followed up till we try to increase our plan. No flexibility to change to the new plan immediately. Also the request with the service department was not followed up.

Pros

Options to limit the print, save, watermark and put an expiry date to the document is helpful as we like to segregate our investors into different categories.

Cons

There is no search function to find if a particular email has been invited or logged on as guests till we try to the invitation. When loading files, a few steps needed before we can load into the selected folder. Not straight forward. Unable to see what is the total data usage so we are not sure when we are charged for the extra data used previously.

Accessible and Intuitive

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, my experience has been positive.

Pros

I really liked the simplicity of the software. Working in the lower middle market space, many of our clients are unfamiliar with data rooms, and so we want them to be as comfortable as possible. Ansarada's platform has received positive feedback from our clients in terms of ease of navigation and accessibility.

Cons

I wish that there was more consistency with pricing. When discounts are applied, it is not always clear if we are getting a consistent rate or not.
