Access rights protect confidential information

With netfiles access rights you can easily define which users or user groups can view, edit, download, print or not see documents at all. With "Secure Document Viewing" you can make particularly confidential documents available for viewing only. This also prevents documents from being downloaded or printed by certain user groups.

Q & A – questions and answers

A question and answer process integrated directly in the data room enables general questions or questions assigned to a folder or document to be answered by defined specialists. A comprehensive workflow supports the viewing and processing of questions and answers on the seller and bidder side. Optional gatekeepers can channel questions and answers.

Automatic notification

Users of the data room can be notified by e-mail if content has been added or changed in the data room.
