Encapsulation is an innovative process developed by Timeref which takes place at the end of the deal. It consists in recording and freezing in a "capsule" all the communication that took place during the deal: deposits and consultations of sensitive data, annotations of working documents, questions/answers, access to the data room by users.

The entire life of the data room is archived in the capsule, like a film that ran from the beginning to the end of the deal. Whatever information needs to be preserved, encapsulation makes it possible to keep track of it.

But the biggest advantage of this process is its evidential value.

In the event of a dispute after the deal has been closed, the Timeref capsule can be used as evidence before a competent court, thanks to AFNOR NF203 certification, which guarantees the integrity of the data hosted by Timeref. For example, this makes it possible to prove that a document was indeed delivered to the auditors, and that it was consulted or modified by a given user on a given date.

In short, Timeref encapsulation makes your firm the "trusted third party" your customers can rely on in the event of a dispute.
