"Good service but there are cheaper options now"

What do you like best?

They have a long, great history (I believe one of the oldest providers), which gives them extensive experience solving some of the most complicated issues and helping bankers etc. navigate some of the more cumbersome deals / processes. They tend to work with bulge brackets and are very focused on large-scale deals, and have the process down to a science. They make sure their clients get exactly what they need when all is said and done.

What do you dislike?

The main gripe with Intralinks is the price. They are almost always more expensive than other providers, and with all of the new competition nowadays, with many competitors offering very similar features for less, it's tough to justify Intralinks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Shop around for the best price - if you want to pay a premium for Intralinks to guarantee great service, it might be worth it, but there are plenty of other great options available now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have always used their classic data room functions which are used in an M&A process. This includes secure data storage and exchange, smooth collaboration tools, etc. These are especially helpful while in the process of due diligence.

"The best data room out there"

What do you like best?

Intuitive interface with all the functionalities you could want

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I have issues getting to the login page or the login page refreshing unnecessarily, making it difficult to get into my account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

By far it's the most comprehensive and sophisticated data room offering out there. However, it's priced to reflect that. Negotiating on volume or on the promise of repeat business helps a lot with price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing diligence materials for buyers for sale processes and accessing target company diligence info in a secure fashion. Security and simplicity are key benefits that I get with IL over other alternatives.

What Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"I enjoy using IntraLinks and the customer service is outstanding."

What do you like best?

IntraLinks was very easy to navigate and update as needed.

What do you dislike?

I did not dislike anything about IntraLinks. I do believe that there should be additional cost friendly similar options with less choices.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe you save time by giving access to all parties. When someone is looking for information they can access the room instead of emailing several people to obtain copies of documentation.

"Update system for data storage"

What do you like best?

Easy to store documents and give people the ability to access documents at the touch of a button.

very easy to use

What do you dislike?

Can be a very hard system to navigate. Takes a great amount of time to have people gain access to documents that you may need to give them. Never an instant thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would look to find another data storage system. This system is going to become outdated within a number of years

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Syndicated Loan Bushiness to be able to give out docs and trading info to 1000's of lenders. Central site to post documents is the biggest benefit.

"IntraLinks Review"

What do you like best?

Incredibly disappointed with this data room. The only nice thing about it is the auto population feature when adding users

What do you dislike?

Support desk is incompetent. They had me using a 1990s interface for a month, then upgraded me to what I should have had all along.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sell side M&A data room. Benefit is transfer of information in a secure way. Data rooms are a completely commoditized product and my future decisions will be based solely on price.

"Analyst"

What do you like best?

Cheap and easy to navigate around the interface. This was also very cost beneficial. It was easy to recommend to clients who didnt want to pay 10K for a VDR. They also changed a one flat fee instead of charging by views/clicks/downloads or times

What do you dislike?

There is not a lot of of cool features or tools. Sometimes the platform is finicky

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are easy to use. It was better using this than others because the cost was also very cheap.
