The Challenges

  • Working with an Italian-speaking, experienced project manager based in Milan was critical – alongside having 24/7 access to a European helpdesk.
  • 120,000 pages of data needed to be accessed by over 400 users, all of whom needed quick and easy access to relevant data – preferably using a site with an interface in their preferred language.

The Solutions

  • The local Imprima team in Milan worked with Pioneer Investments alongside the Imprima team in London to set up the data room, which included uploading 120,000 pages of documentation in an accelerated timetable.
  • Davide Colombo, Global Head of Organisation at Pioneer Investments said, “We found that the Imprima VDR was of a higher quality than other systems and offered value for money. Our selection was based on a combination of recommendation, value and quality.”
