New version of netfiles with a modernized user interface and new functions

Ongoing development of netfiles data rooms focused on ease of use

Burghausen, February 19, 2015

With immediate effect, the new version of netfiles boasts a modernized, simplified user interface, plus a host of useful new functions designed to make data exchange and online collaboration between companies even more effective. When redesigning the netfiles user interface, the developers took great care to ensure that users don't have to learn to use the application all over again. All the most important functions are still exactly where they have always been. Development of the new functions likewise concentrated primarily on making secure data exchange even easier. netfiles firmly believes that data rooms should be easy even for computer novices to use, without the need for extensive training. Since the very first version was launched over ten years ago, our company has therefore focused consistently on making its application simple and intuitive to use.

Here is a list of the most important new functions:

  • In the new netfiles version, labels give users a helpful additional way to organize and search for documents in the data room.

  • Unread documents in a netfiles data room can now be marked as such with a symbol, making it clear which documents have already been accessed and which have not.

  • Files as big as 4 GB can now be uploaded.

  • An extended activity log now also documents managed file transfer activities.

  • Data rooms can be set up more easily by creating new users but not inviting them to access the data room until later.

"Security is naturally key," says Thomas Krempl, founder and Managing Director of netfiles GmbH, talking about the new netfiles version. "But ease of use too has been central to the development of netfiles right from the word go. The latest version keeps us moving in exactly the same direction. Most of our customers are not computer experts, so they want solutions that they can use easily and efficiently." netfiles gives companies a secure data transfer facility and a secure, central online document management system, complete with detailed access rights and mobile access options. This cloud-based solution makes it simplicity itself to exchange data within the company or with customers and suppliers, and to set up safe data rooms for M&A projects, due diligence tests, asset transactions, board communication, real estate management and contract management, for example.
