Merrill Corporation, a global provider of solutions to improve outcomes in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), today announced a full set of enhancements to Merrill DataSite, the company’s market-leading virtual data room (VDR) product. These enhancements help make the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) due diligence process even faster and more comprehensive for Merrill customers, leading to better outcomes. These enhancements include:
- Faster uploading and accessibility of documents, so users don’t need to waste cycles waiting for content to be available on the data room.
- Expanded range of file types that can be uploaded and searched, including HTML, Visio and image files. Merrill’s advanced optical character recognition technology identifies text contained in these files, making them immediately available for searching. Users can pinpoint information in any file – regardless of type.
- Faster search, and more comprehensive query results, including the ability to quickly access large files.
- Through Merrill’s use of technology from Teridion, DataSite projects in Asia Pacific now have dramatically increased internet transfer speeds and improved performance.
“These strengthened capabilities are part of a comprehensive set of cutting-edge technology investments Merrill has been making,” said Thomas Fredell, Merrill’s Chief Product Officer. “Our product and technology development continues relentlessly, with an uncompromised focus on user experience, performance, and security,” Fredell commented.
