Communicating during an M&A process can become chaotic, coordinating internally, between buyers, management teams, lawyers etc. This results in long email threads that take forever to load. These threads get thrown into different folders in your inbox to stay sane and become difficult to reference as you are going through diligence.
The solution to staying organized is to use a fully integrated project management tool, like DealRoom. By consolidating everything into a fully integrated platform, you can eliminate all the deal-specific communication from your daily inbox. Each party in the deal can access what they need, leave comments where appropriate and get updates in real time. Getting new people on the deal up to speed becomes easier. This also ensures that communication and document referencing are done in a secure environment.
