VDRs by Donnelley Financial Solutions are equally suitable for due diligence, for fundraising, for communication with investors, for developing and managing document repositories.

Ease of use is guaranteed by the multilingual interface, full-text search feature, bulk uploads option, and Q&A section.
Also, Donnelley Financial Solutions developed mobile applications to provide users with an option of instant access to the data from any device at any moment.

Product Reviews
Mar 16, 2020
Your mileage may vary given the positive reviews above... but this platform, from a UX perspective is just a hot mess.
* Donnelley Financial Solutions/Venue only displays 1 page of a document at a time. If you're reviewing a 50 page document and you want to go to previous pages of jump ahead to others, you have to wait for that page to be drawn. Want to go back to the original page? Yep, where you just were has to be redrawn again too.
* Want to search within a document? Not on Venue. Crtl+F doesn't work. Good luck paging through documents one by one trying to find the keyword in which you are interested.
* Does your PDF or docx file have a clickable table of contents in it? Not anymore one you upload it to the Venue platform. Good luck paging through the document one page at a time waiting each time for the page to be drawn.
* Venue uses popups and when you tell your browser to always allow popups for this site, some documents still get blocked.
* Venue doesn't allow your browser to index the page it is on... so the back button doesn't work. If you want to go back a folder in your repository, you have to back all the way out to the landing page and then drill back down into your library/repository.
* It's not clear if Venue supports SSO or not. Be prepared to have multiple accounts (desktop and Venue), passwords, and MFA tokens to get to your docs.
* Venue hogs resources. If you're in the platform all day we find our staff has to reboot daily to keep the browser from locking up.
We waste hours per week just trying to navigate this platform... our productivity is impacted using Donnelley Financial Solutions/Venue.

We chose the Venue data room for our company merely because this provider exists for a very long time. As a law firm, we needed a solid solution for the document exchange. But our clients must trust this solution. So Donnelley was pretty much the only choice we had if we wanted our customers to feel comfortable.

Using RR Donnelley data room, we definitely can close deals faster thanks to the Q&A feature. Stakeholders can understand if they like the terms we offer in less time. But moreover, as we can see their activity, we can change things a bit to make our proposal look more appealing to them. Therefore, we have more success now during deals.

Personally, for me, the best thing about the Venue data room is that they offer a dedicated project manager. I’m not the most tech-savvy person to be fair. So I needed some guidance here and there. And the specialist that was assigned to me was very helpful and went through the whole deal with me.

With RR Donnelley data room, the flow of documents in our company improved significantly. We spend way less time to manage them now. And all our partners seem to be very content with the data room. It is easy to use and offers the functions we need.

The RR Donnelley data room allows us to work with the data in the most convenient for us way. It is easy to find the required file with the filtering feature, and that’s important when we need to retrieve the information quickly. Also, the reports are very useful. They help us to see the bigger picture and see what needs to be improved.

We are using the Venue data room to work with partners and interns. So we really value how simple the management of users and project is. We can control the activity of all users that are invited to the data room. And the projects are also easy to access and work with thanks to the simple interface.
