What is Due Diligence?
The term is ubiquitous in the real estate industry and the financial sector. But little do people know what it means when we say ” do your due diligence”.
In simple terms, it is an investigation before dwelling on some deal.
It is the process of going through all the documents and paperwork before entering into a contract and finalizing the deal. The process of due diligence holds significance in business deals, especially Mergers and Acquisitions. It requires the lawyers to collect all the documents about the deal, analyze the various potential risks involved and based on it, prepare a report of due diligence. It can be financial, operational, environmental, etc.
Due diligence legally is a tedious process and requires huge efforts from the lawyers. It requires not only time and effort but sometimes, financial inputs from the lawyers as well. This process is time taking and results in many inaccuracies which can further hamper the reputation of the lawyer or the law firm. These inaccuracies are the primary reasons behind failed M&As. Thus,
the purpose of conducting is to evaluate if the purchase or sale or any deal is sound and profitable for the company or not.
What are the costs involved in Due Diligence?
The cost of due diligence primarily depends on its scope and extensiveness. It also depends on the number of third parties involved in the process like the accountants, lawyers, auditors etc. It does include costs like the breakage fee, the IT or technology fee and rebranding cost (totally depending on the size of the company).

As we are advancing towards the future, the road to AI and how it can serve the various sectors is getting clearer. The technology has immense to offer in the process of due diligence. Let’s see how it is.
Reduced Time and Less Chaos
The process of due diligence as discussed is quite a hectic one. The amount of paperwork one has to deal with increases the chances of mistakes. But with Artificial Intelligence the manual labour of the team can be reduced to a huge extent. It can help them identify and manage the documents required and sort them as per their need. AI and cloud seem to be the best possible combination for this. Technology can help in completing the process faster so that the deals take less time and the management can move on to the next one quickly.
Decreased chances of Errors
Artificial intelligence and cloud computing offer the easiest and best data management facilities. The data stored can be very well organized, categorized, identified, ingested and consumed.
The information stored daily by each company now is massive and so managing it manually automatically becomes not only exasperating but also manual management leads to more errors. However, when stored on a cloud server, the data can be stored without any worries and the chances of errors decrease too.
AI and Efficiency
AI can help in analyzing several documents in one go. It not only saves time but also the efforts of the employees which can be utilized in the other activities. The deals can thus be conducted with seamless efficiency without overburdening the employees.
The Certainty in Uncertainty
The world is truly uncertain and after the pandemic, undoubtedly. But, AI can help you identify various patterns and thus analyze them so that you can have a first-mover advantage and can optimise the opportunity before your competitors. It can even help you get aware of the threats or external patterns that might have a negative impact on your business. The ability to identify the future patterns can help you make better decisions for the upcoming deals or even the ones in hand.

The main benefit of AI is the amount of money you save. It helps you in reducing your cost in many ways like removing he need for a physical space to store documents, hiring people to manage those documents.
