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.

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%.
