Some vendors charge a monthly flat fee that includes unlimited users and data. Other providers charge based on the number pages that are accessed. The fees vary from just a few cents for each page to a large sum a year for more complicated rooms. In addition some VDRs provide an initial trial period that allows users to test out the platform prior to making the purchase.
Many VDRs have been designed specifically for M&A Due Diligence. These tools are especially useful for businesses who are trying to navigate mergers and acquisitions. The M&A process typically requires a significant amount of data and a VDR can offer a secure platform on which sensitive information can be assessed. In some instances, businesses can also revoke access the VDR in the event that the deal is not completed.
Some VDRs provide security certifications or conformity, which can show that the vendor is ready to protect customer information. It is also beneficial when vendors permit administrators to modify access permissions so that groups are only able to view or download certain files, but not others. This ensures the security of the files and improves user experience.
