Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / Communication procedures between parties
French term or phrase: par/via fichier
The context is the parts of a service provision contract describing the mode of communication between the parties:

eg. 1: A chaque début de contrat, le bénéficiaire envoie au prestataire *par fichier* toutes les informations relatives aux véhicules...

eg. 2: "Un mois avant chaque fin de contrat ainsi qu’à chaque mise à jour, le bénéficiaire informe le prestataire *via fichier* (la forme du fichier sera conjointement validé entre le prestataire et le bénéficiaire) des dates de retour..."

At first I thought this might be an alternative to "par courrier", indicating electronic communication, but it seems rather to refer to the use of some sort of pro-forma file as a way of presenting the information that is exchanged. If this is the right reading, is there a conventional way of saying this in English? Or does it mean something else?
