Overall Satisfaction with Merrill DatasiteOne

We use Merrill data rooms to efficiently share documents for diligence efforts between multiple parties (businesses, legal counsel, insurers, bankers). It solves the problem of taking document sharing off of an email platform and putting it on a central online cloud system that all parties can access simeltaneously.
  • Update emails notifying users of new uploads
  • Basic folder organization
  • Uploading is easy and intuitive
  • Identifying new uploads on the merrill website
  • Times out users too quickly
  • Searching all documents; poor functionality
  • Streamline document sharing
  • Slows down diligence efforts when it's difficult to identify new documents
  • Fair pricing
I prefer Firmex. They have a strong search function and a user interface that makes it easy to identify new documents. Merrill is robust and offers the same basic tools, but I find its interface less intuitive.
Well suited for a basic document sharing platform between 2-3 parties. I've found it less efficient and slow when you introduce over 10 users and multiple users uploading documents. I wish there was a way for merrill to highlight new documents from the last time that particular user logged in and viewed that folder.
