HALO was tired of long, unmanageable diligence lists.

They saw time being wasted on redundant or low-priority tasks. Too many late nights were wasted on only organizing and tracking requests in spreadsheets.

Huge value loss was associated with miscommunication and misinformation. Problems stemming from information silos among teams.

  • Needed a new tool to control, organize, and use data
  • Deal fatigue was affecting morale and had implications on diligence speed
  • Saw opportunity to sculpt better communication methods among their large diligence team


After signing up with DealRoom, requests can be organized by group, linked to files, and compiled into a general overview to demonstrate progress.

There is transparency in what has been done by who and what needs to still be accomplished.

HALO is able to preserve accidental edits or mistakes on documents with an audit log. 

  • Intuitive platform means less time onboarding new team members and external users
  • Request list functionality allows for integrated request lists
  • Flexibility in use allows for customization and scalability to team’s unique needs


HALO has full control over its M&A process.

From security to managing diligence requests to communicating with their targets, DealRoom provides an all-in-one solution to their pain points. 

Since onboarding with DealRoom, they’ve saved hours working through spreadsheets and scrolling through email threads. They have found an increase in transparency and accurately measuring and reporting on the diligence process.
