Wintersteiger Uses Brainloop Secure Dataroom to Optimize Reporting

Wintersteiger AG, a manufacturer of specialist machines based in Austria, is using the Brainloop Secure Dataroom to share confidential documents with the board and for financial reporting purposes.

Boston, USA and Ried, Austria, September 14, 2010 — Wintersteiger AG, a manufacturer of specialist machines based in Austria, is using the Brainloop Secure Dataroom ( http://www.brainloop.com ) to share confidential documents with the board and for financial reporting purposes. The web-based secure collaboration platform enables Wintersteiger, a global market leader, to significantly improve process efficiency as well as the transparency of its information flows.

Like many other companies, Wintersteiger places considerable importance on regulatory compliance and is now able to set up transparent processes stipulating how confidential information should be shared. As a result, the company can provide information about the transfer or location of confidential documents at any time.

In 2011 Wintersteiger plans to conduct its acquisitions in the Brainloop Secure Dataroom, ( http://www.brainloop.com ) and will also use it to report information to external business partners such as the company’s banks.
