Case Study - Cosworth

During the recent sale of Adaero Precision Components Ltd to Indutrade AB Cosworth needed a mechanism to share files with multiple parties in multiple locations. A key requirement was that access to such files would be secure and confidential.

“Rather than shipping files on memory sticks or using generic file sharing sites, we required a truly secure file sharing system that enabled us to share large volumes of documents at ease whilst ensuring our absolute need for confidentiality with this legal transaction”, explained Louise Breen, PA to CEO of Cosworth Group Holdings. “One of our corporate finance advisors highly recommended PROJECTFUSION and we chose them to provide us with a secure virtual data room. We controlled the users and our data was backed up, including a clear audit trail with evidence of the files that each user had accessed.”

Using a virtual data room for the first time was not without apprehension, “We were originally concerned about using an unknown technology but from the moment we engaged with PROJECTFUSION, we were extremely impressed by their expert service and support. Their features such as automatic document indexing made everything so much easier to control and with our trust in their system, Projectfusion helped us progress the transaction quickly and efficiently.”

The move from paper to online processes can be challenging for any company. A key component of PROJECTFUSION is quality customer service, expert guidance and 24/7 support (with a 15 minute response time). Louise Breen says “I cannot fault the service from first interaction to last. Their support is technically first class and product is extremely simple to use – 10 out of 10 for customer service.”

Indutrade has acquired all of the shares in Adaero Precision Components Ltd in the UK, with annual sales of £4.4M from Cosworth Group Holdings Ltd.

“Their support is technically first class and product is extremely simple to use – 10 out of 10 for customer service.”
