Fax Solutions Overview
In spite of many changes in communication technologies since the first fax was sent in 1855, faxing remains an important method for exchanging information. Why? Because faxing is simple, delivery is confirmed, and faxed documents are legally binding. Faxing remains a universal method of document delivery with billions of faxes sent every year.
But traditional faxing has limitations:
- Supplying individual fax machines with paper, toner, separate phone lines, etc. is costly. Lost productivity is also costly, as employees using standalone fax machines often print a document, go to a fax machine, and then wait for confirmation that the transmission has finished.
- In today’s integrated work environment, fax machines lack integration with common business applications that reside on computers – where most faxed documents are produced.
- Standalone fax machines lack tracking and security. Fax machines cannot provide an audit trail of who sent each fax, and inbound faxes with sensitive information can’t be directed to a specific user or group. While all faxing can verify that a document was received, it cannot ensure that the received fax was not lost or misplaced, or read by the wrong person.
The answer is an enterprise fax solution from OpenText:
- Reduce costs by replacing fax machines and their associated expenses with a software- or cloud-based solution. Save money through increased employee productivity by faxing with the user’s desktop and email applications.
- Obtain desktop and web-based faxing that integrates with Multi-Function Printers (MFPs), enabling users to send faxes or printed material directly from the device.
- Securely track all faxes, inbound and outbound, with an audit trail. Protect privacy by routing inbound faxes to the recipient’s email address.

Eliminate Fax Machines with Electronic Faxing
On-going use and maintenance of fax machines exhaust resources in time, cost and capital expenditure. The problem is exacerbated by market pressures that demand companies continuously enhance process efficiency to optimize productivity. As a result organizations are looking to replace their fax machines and infrastructure with more agile, efficient and cost effective means of fax communications that aren’t heavily dependent on manual paper based processes, nor the amount of bandwidth IT has at its disposal to maintain on-premise hardware.
