“I became a massive supporter of Ansarada in 2010 and have used you since then." Grant Koch, Partner, head of Australian private equity practice, DLA Piper.
“I became a massive supporter of Ansarada in 2010 and have used you since then. Ansarada’s product was just more user-friendly than the others.
What I loved about Ansarada from the beginning was the flexibility and the willingness to work with us to help us provide a better product and service to our client, as though it was a very bespoke product. You provided extremely good, personal service.
Can I set it up as I want to set it up? How flexible is it in terms of me granting different access to different people at different times, and varying that? And then how secure is it? How easy is it for me to lock up printing?
We’ll have documents that people can download, can print, but at some point there will be a complete lockout on it. It will be time labelled. Those kind of things are important for me as a lawyer.
The reason I went for Ansarada, apart from flexibility, was that the competitors had alerts that notified you every time a document went in the data room. As lawyers, we are worried about legal documents but probably 40% of what’s in the data room is financial.
I don’t need 20 emails overnight telling me that this has gone in or that has gone in. It’s irrelevant to me. So the ability to turn off that functionality was key; Ansarada could do it and its competitors at that time couldn’t.”
