Firmex Releases New User Management Features for Data Room Administrators

Firmex, a leading virtual data room provider, announced the latest release of its secure portal for document sharing. The release includes enhancements that further automates data room setup by administrators, and reduces the effort required to add users and assign user permissions.  Administrators who manage any number of users will recognize the benefits, and the features are especially useful when working with a large number of users and complex projects. 

Clients like Kevin Kozak, VP Corporate Projects at OMERS are supporters of the new release.  “The new user management functionality saves us time and reduces risks in working on complex matters.”  OMERS is one of Canada’s largest pension plans managing over $53 billion in net assets on behalf of over 400,000 members.  Kevin continued: “With Firmex we benefit from one fixed price for an unlimited number of data rooms to support a number of corporate initiatives, and we can centralize our user management across the organization.”

Highlights of the latest release include:
• New User Wizard – select, create or import hundreds of new users to a data room in a few clicks
• Streamlined User List Management  – smart sorting and auto complete fields to minimize human error
• Email Notification Settings – new interface for tailoring notification preferences across multiple data rooms
• In-Product Training Videos – highlighting new functionality for casual and expert users
• Performance optimizations for managing thousands of users

Kevin says, “Consistent and automated user management like this is critical for organizations like ours.  The Firmex Client Services organization has done an outstanding job for us.”  Firmex clients always have access to the online Knowledge Base of support videos and materials, and can reach expert support from Client Services 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Elizabeth Caley, VP of Product Management at Firmex, said:  “When millions, and possibly billions, of dollars are at stake along with reputation, every possible human error must be minimized – and this can be done with great product design.  We go to great lengths to ensure that users are part of our product development.  We’re proud to deliver features that our clients ask for, and we’re excited when our clients recognize the value in our product enhancements and the quality of service we provide.”
