Date: 10/24/2012

Product enhancements to Intralinks Dealspace enable a more streamlined M&A process

Intralinks (NYSE: IL), a leading, global technology provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, today announced the release of new enhancements to Intralinks Dealspace®. 

Traditional methods of finding opportunities and creating and maintaining data rooms to support the deal process are limited, ineffective, and can lead to deal delays. Intralinks, a pioneer in virtual data rooms, has taken virtual data room solutions to the next level by offering the services needed to manage the entire deal lifecycle.

Intralinks Dealspace offers virtual data rooms with robust functionality, allowing dealmakers to focus on high-value activities. By leveraging these capabilities to manage sourcing, the due diligence process, as well as closing and post-merger integration, bankers can speed deal execution, manage visibility, and dramatically enhance the productivity of their deal time:

Deal Marketing through Intralinks Courier® – Intralinks Courier®, our secure email-like service for sharing of large and confidential files outside the corporate firewall, offers enhanced features to support workflow and expedite the deal process. Users have new flexibility for sending documents, tracking who has read document packages, and creating and editing contact lists.

New and Improved Q&A Functionality – Intralinks Q&A functionality has been completely revamped based on extensive customer feedback to offer what we believe are the most streamlined, easy-to-use, and robust Q&A capabilities. Users can now paste previous small and medium enterprise (SME) response and question details when delegating to subject matter experts. The Q&A functionality also enables bulk question upload, and new dashboards provide at-a-glance views of Q&A status. (Updated Q&A functionality will be available mid-November)

Updated User Interface – An enhanced Intralinks user interface increases workflow efficiency. Buttons for the most used features are more accessible, and the new dropdown menus and Hub view leave more working room on the screen.

Enhanced Intralinks Viewer – Intralinks Viewer, a web-based viewer that enables users to review Adobe PDF, Microsoft® Word, Microsoft® Excel®, and Microsoft® PowerPoint® documents without the need for specific programs or software, has made many enhancements and also provides immediate access to files.

“We continue to innovate and enable more parts of the deal process to be improved by technology,” said Matt Porzio, VP of M&A Product Marketing at Intralinks. “Intralinks Dealspace helps streamline and manage the full M&A lifecycle, shortening the time it takes to execute deals and leading to a higher percentage of deal closures.”
