Using E-Lock solution, Mobifon (now Vodafone) was able to make the e-invoicing process legally compliant, automatic and more efficient.

The Challenge Faced by Mobifon:
Mobifon is a leading mobile telephony service provider in Romania. Mobifon has around 5 million subscribers.
Business Challenge :
Mobifon has 5 million subscribers and it was tough to generate thousands of invoices on a daily basis. The overall process incurred high costs, as these invoices had to be printed, signed, and stored.
To reduce the costs, invoice generating time and make process automatic, Mobifon decided to adopt electronic mode. After developing a system to automatically generate invoices in PDF format, the challenge was to abide by the Romanian legislation. According to the legislation, all electronically stored data and records need to be signed digitally using a corporate digital certificate, which resides on the smart card or a hardware device.
Solution requirements::
  • Ability to automate the signing process without user intervention
  • Ability to sign PDF documents
  • Ability to sign with digital certificate stored on HSM
  • Logging for success or failure in signing
E-Lock Solution:
To meet Mobifone’s requirements, E-Lock provided its automated server side bulk signing solution, Bulk Signer. E-Lock Bulk Signer runs as Windows-based service on the server, and polls the pre-defined server folder for invoices at regular intervals. Invoices are digitally signed with the pre-configured certificate from the HSM, and are kept in the output folder, which are then further processed. There is no manual intervention while signing and the process is completely automatic. All the features like polling time, input and output folder, digital certificate with which files are signed, reason and location, which appear in the signature block, are pre-configured.
