Pros

Fantastic experience, awesome customer support and very easy to contract and manage. Ideal for a short term project (M&A, etc).
The software has positively impressed me for its possibility of use also in the form of an app for mobile media, and for its stability and reliability.
24/7 customer service help desk to resolve any issues. The pricing is very attractive and best in comparison to other VDR available in market.

Pros

Nice clean and simple to navigate VDR interface. Appreciated ability to reorder tasks.
Ease of use and unlimited data for the price. It is the best value option and does not compromise on quality.
Generally very positive and would be happy to recommend it to colleagues or peers.

Cons

The customer service and response time was terrible, had to make multiple follow ups. No customer service available for the end user.
The software and the support mad our deals succees.
We had issues by creating the dataroom Index and technical problems with the vdr usb stick.

Cons

We were a little confused at times when one person on the team reviewed "new" data which caused the "new" flag to fade and others might miss this due to the volume of data shared.
There were times when I found preview screens to distort the image of the document.
Any time I use a different VDR I get frustrated.

High quality and reliable

Reviewed 4 years ago

Virtual data room to track buyers and provide them access to sensitive company documents for their due diligence.

Pros

The security and ease of use is very helpful. We are able to get potential buyers all of the relevant documents in a concise manner and to track who is reading what documents.

Cons

Being used to other virtual data room databases, it takes a bit of time to get up the learning curve on the nuances of DealRoom versus others.

Great product for virtual data room

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with the software tool is very good. It is great to work with on deals.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use the dealroom virtual data room. Very easy to search for the files I want to find.

Cons

It is sometimes challenging to use DealRoom from my mobile device. A mobile application version would be helpful.

It has been a good experience. The interface is fine though it could be more user friendly

Pros

Affordable product, practical, it is a good alternative for small-mid sized companies that want to invest in a virtual data room in an M&A context

Cons

Ease of use can improve, could be more user-friendly and allow a better response to multiple downloads

Excellent customer service!

Reviewed 4 years ago

The best part about using DealRoom by far was my experience with the customer representative, my customer success manager throughout the process. She chatted with me while in the portal, offering tips to ensure I took the best advantage of Deal Room's features. Even after I left the portal, she continued to follow up, doing everything within her power to guarantee I had a 10/10 experience. No other VDR platform I've used has even offered that type of personal support. And on top of that, she was one of the strongest, most courteous, and most helpful customer success manager's I have encountered in any product or service I have ever used!

Pros

I have experience with a few different Virtual Data Room platforms: Merrill DataSite, Donnelly, etc. Most platforms focus only on privacy and functionality at the expense of general user interface. I found Deal Room to be incredibly easy to use, despite having never used it before. This ease of use was greatly augmented by my experience with my customer success manager, who I will describe below.

Cons

There was very little not to like. The software did exactly what I needed it to.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review Luke! Good to hear you've had a positive experience with DealRoom compared to other providers and happy to hear the interface was intuitive and easy for you to use. Also, thank you so much for the kind words about our customer success manager! Glad to hear our team is doing their best to help you and we are grateful for the feedback. Appreciate you taking time for the review!

Easy to Use

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've used many data rooms from many providers over the last few years, and the two most important features to me are whether the data room has an effective search feature and whether items are indexed for easy cross-reference. DealRoom delivers both a functional search option that returns relevant results and common-sense indexing.

Pros

The data room is easy to organize and has a great search feature.

Cons

I did not have any complaints about the software.

Vendor response

Thanks for the positive feedback Amanda! Glad the search ability and indexing worked well for you. Appreciate you taking time to leave us a review, it's extremely helpful. Thanks again!

Loved the functionality

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Very easy to use and do admin of your various groups using the data room. I really liked their request tracking feature and the project management capabilities to get all of the due diligence requests completed on time. The support team was fantastic to work with and always answer our questions on a timely basis. I had worked with the large virtual data room providers in the past and this is a major improvement in functionality and ease of use versus what I was used to.

Cons

Nothing meaningful I can add here as I pretty much liked just about everything I got with this software.

Vendor response

Thanks Efrain! So glad to hear using requests to manage your diligence process has worked well and our team has been supportive for you. Appreciate the kind words and you taking the time to leave a review!

Well-designed Data Room

Reviewed 4 years ago

I was given access as part of a due diligence data room. The file structure was easy to understand, and downloading was simple. There were a number of features that were beyond my typical data room experience, but I believe could be useful.

Pros

The ability to request information through the platform, the download process was easy.

Cons

While intrigued by the ability to request information, I didn't use it, because I generally err towards direct email asks. If this was an internal project, I could see the use for the information request features.

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback on using requests! If it was ever something you were looking to use in an upcoming project feel free to get in touch and happy to talk about best use cases. Thanks again!

Great Project Management Resource Tool

KCI Review of DealRoom

Reviewed 3 years ago

I thought it was a great VDR option for the price.

Pros

I thought that user friendliness was one of the stronger features here. We don't get too crazy on the security side but I imagine the functionality of your security may be a deterring factor for some of your peers.

Cons

What I liked least about the data room was figuring out the allocation of security levels.

One of the best

Reviewed 3 years ago

Thoroughly impressed, prefer it over competing products such as intralinks, MerrillDatasite One and even Ansarada. The download and processing speed of the site really stands out to me.

Pros

This software has stood out to me for various reasons. - Fast download speed to easy zip folders which have smaller capacity and are therefore easy to email forward. - Loading speed of the pages is considerably faster than other deal platforms. - Q&A function is user friendly and simple with clear indicators to questions being answered and edit/attachment functions.

Cons

- It doesn't seem clear to me as to how to attach data room document numbers to the top of the document when downloaded from the site. - The exported excel index does not include the date which documents were unloaded to the data room.

Vendor response

Thank you so much Louisa! Glad you were happy with the download speeds and our Requests function for having questions answered with documents attached to the request. Appreciate the high recommendation compared to other platforms as well. Thanks again!

The ability to quickly navigate through new files in a short amount of time greatly increases efficiency.

Pros

The ability to quickly see what has been uploaded to the data room in the previous 24 hours. This is extremely helpful.

Cons

Instead of a notification email just saying there are new documents and then listing them out, it could say that "5 documents have been added to the finance folder" which would provide a quicker understanding of whether they are material to my workstream.

DealRoom - Gets The Job Done But Leaves More To Be Desired

Reviewed 4 years ago

It achieves it's basic purpose but there are other data rooms with enhancements that provide a better experience.

Pros

The bulk download capabilities, the organization by data room when you are in multiple, and the ability to view documents without downloading them.

Cons

There is no feature to sort all documents by upload date so that you can see what is new since you last logged in. Some other data rooms have a feature where you can sort new documents by your last login date or by new documents since a particular date you choose.

Vendor response

Hello! Glad to hear you are happy with the bulk download capabilities. In the top right above the Home folder you can click Recent Files to show what has been last uploaded and sort by date. Thanks so much for the feedback and hope you use us again soon!

Easy to Use, and Great Value

Reviewed 4 years ago

Very satisfied with how quickly we were able to set up a data room for our transactions. It has the functionality we need for the M&A deals that we do.

Pros

Very easy to use - our data vault was up and running quickly. The counterparties find it easy to use, too. And the pricing is reasonable.

Cons

Need more FAQs or directions for use so that we don't need to contact customer support so much during the set-up. It is just a matter of needing a roadmap to using some of the features.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review Warren! Glad to hear you and your counterparties have had a good experience. More FAQ's and training guides/videos is something we are working on for 2019, appreciate that feedback. Thanks again for the nice comments!
