iDeals VDR has an extremely intuitive interface that was very easy for me to understand even though I never used data rooms. Everyone in my company feels very comfortable using this data room.

This data room has managed to create quite a reputation for itself of the past ten years and has proven itself as leader among virtual data rooms available on the market today. In fact, it doesn’t even matter which industry you are in since you will be able to leverage the many collaboration and customization tools needed to perform all kinds transactions, conducting due diligence and pretty much anything else that your project entails. What really stands out is that everything was thought out and even the most tedious tasks can be accomplished with greater efficiency. You will be able to sleep soundly at night without having to worry about a possible data or security breach since there are firewalls and data encryptions protecting your data, not to mention innovative features such as the fence view, which acts as a physical barrier between the user and the data.

Considering everything mentioned above, perhaps what makes it the best virtual data room is its top-level security and commitment to facilitating the collaboration process. It has high-level security features that go above and beyond the standard ones offered by other data rooms that will allow you to rest assured knowing that everything you uploaded into the data room stays secure. Even with all of these security precautions in place, it does not hinder collaboration at all and some documents may even be accessed offline.

Also, in order to facilitate collaboration, the iDeals VDR has a Q&A section, which really makes it easy for participants to communicate with one another in a secure manner. All of your communication stays secure and will be stored inside the data room should there be a need to review it. There are also settings that allow the room administrator to determine who can ask questions and even who can see the Q&A section. This really simplifies a lot of the difficult things associated with your project and allows you to perform them in an efficient manner.

Another great aspect of the iDeals Virtual Data Room is its customer service. Whenever you are starting to use a virtual data room for the first time, you will most likely have some questions regarding functionality. Many other virtual data rooms out there will transfer your call to an automated voice messaging system or their customer service teams are available during limited hours. The iDeals data room support team will be there for you 24/7 and, best of all, support is available in 12 languages.

When compared with other virtual data room providers it stacked up much better in various categories including usability, security and customer service.

Product Reviews:

  1. Demi Meyer

    Corporate Financial Analyst

    iDeals was our last-minute decision as we needed a data room for a soon upcoming deal. And even though we had virtually no time to sit down and figure out the technology, we could understand quickly how to use all the numerous features. The deal was very smooth and we managed to close it successfully very quickly thanks to analytics and collaboration tools iDeals has.

  2. Calvin Wardle


    We’ve been using another data room provider for a while but recently we decided to switch to iDeals. This VDR is so much better than what we used to have! The interface is so simple to use, and there are a lot of features we didn’t have before. We’re definitely going to stick to iDeals.

  3. Rylie Garnier


    I’ve tried several providers for my company, but I find iDeals virtual data rooms to be the best fit for our needs. It has all the features my employees need to work with documents. Also, my partners seem to have no issues using it to access the required files. And 24/7 support is great in case something happens.

  4. Homer Louise

    Procurement Director

    I’ve tried several different providers in my company, but iDeals seems to be the best fit for me. Finally, there is a data room with all the features I need and, most importantly, a straightforward interface. With other providers, I used to spend a lot of time trying to understand the functions. But with iDeals VDR, there is no struggle.

  5. Betsy Carly

    Key Account Manager Biopharm

    We used another provider for a couple of years, but switching to iDeals VDR was one of the best decisions we’ve made. Now we have all the features we need to maintain the documents. I was afraid it would take a lot of time for us to get used to new software. But the interface is so simple that we didn’t need any help with it.

  6. Mat Kendrick

    Executive Director

    In my company, we’re using iDeals for over a year, and we’re totally satisfied with it. The interface is intuitive and straightforward, and it looks great, which is important, too. The best thing is the reaction of our potential partners to the iDeals VDR – I feel like it creates a nice impression about our company. Also, having all the necessary functions we execute deals way faster now.

  7. Shaquille Elsie


    iDeals VDR is perfect for us. I like that this data room has all the necessary features, but the interface is not overloaded. It is effortless to use, and we didn’t have any issues with this data room. However, during the first deal, I needed some help in organizing the workspace. And iDeals support was very helpful and attentive.

  8. Alycia Monique

    General Manager

    We’re using iDeals for a couple of months now, and I genuinely don’t know how we managed to work without it. iDeals VDR has all the features my business needs to maintain the corporate documents and the communication with our partners. And the interface is perfectly simple. Everyone could figure it out almost instantly.
