Diadoc service was launched in early 2011. At this moment there are more than 22 registered customers of the service. The number of digital documents sent via Diado exceeds 1,767,000.

"In our country annual business correspondence reaches 45 billion documents: contracts, acts, bills, invoices. All these paper documents are delivered by mail or by courier. This cost a lot for the companies and for the country", — says Gregory Cooks, deputy CEO of SKB Kontur.

According to the research of SKB Kontur, a company pays 80-100 rubles for forwarding a package of documents (taking into account the cost of printing, shipping, handling and storage of papers). Mail delivery takes about 5-10 days. Also the mail service could loose papers during the forwarding, as they are sorted manually. Electronic documents are much more cheaper (about 10 rubles per paper) and they are transmitted via secure comminication channels and they are delivered less than in a minute.

European companies are already using electronic documents for more than 10 years. The market grows by a third per year, covering more than 3,6 million companies and 470 operators of electronic documents. The share of electronic documents in the economies of several countries is about 60%. In Russia there were some legal barries for such processes, for example, until 2010 year there were a law that allowed only paper form of invoices. However, at this moment all regulations and procedures for sending and receiving electronic documents between companies are consistent with the State.
