Did you know that the Q&A admin in your data room approves and forwards an average of 238 questions per deal? That’s a lot of wasted time.
60% of all subject questions require approval and forwarding to subject matter experts. With typically high volumes, the task of forwarding these questions can be repetitive and tedious. 

Using an estimate of about 30 seconds and 4 clicks to forward a question (from an email notification), it adds up quickly.

You questioned, we answered

Q&A admins can now automate their Q&A workflow so that questions are diverted directly to the right team, without manual assignment. Simply set your subject matter expert (or multiple experts), and provided they have the right permissions granted, questions will be forwarded to them automatically.
This simple update can save you at least 2 hours – or 950 extraneous clicks – over the course of your next deal. (That’s also 950 email notifications avoided!) If you’re an analyst working an average of 3-5 deals annually, this can add up to a whole day saved over the course of the year.
And you need it. A recent eFinancial Careers Resilience Survey showed that 54% of M&A bankers were ‘super-exhausted’ at the end of last year, and 37% of analysts still average five hours of sleep (or less) a night.
Ansarada’s Q&A facility is built into the Deals space to keep the entire process protected against risk of accidental disclosure. Here are a few more Q&A tips to speed up your deal and boost performance.
