They designed general communication scheme between Rostelecom-Ural and operator’s subscribers via Diadoc. During realization of the scheme they faced some difficulties with conversion of document files uploaded from Rostelecom-Ural billing system into readable format. But this was overcome by creation of file conversion system on Diadoc server.
Converted documents amended by e-invoice have been signed by e-signature of Rostelecom-Ural employee and transferred via Diadoc to the Bank.
The Bank has received the documents signed by e-signature and confirmed them to be viewable and can be loaded into information system. Service acceptance certificate received via Diadoc was signed by Bank chief accountant deputy e-signature.
Execution of all the operations such as issue, signing and transfer of e-documents, their check and signing by the Bank takes 10 minutes maximum.
