Firewall.cx is always on the lookout for unique products and solutions that can help automate important services within your network environment. We recently ran into GFI's FaxMaker for Exchange/ SMTP and Lotus, which offers unique features not found in other similar products and which we are sure many would benefit from. While you can grab a copy of GFI's Faxmaker from our Free Download Section we would like to provide a brief overview of GFI's FaxMaker capabilities, which are very impressive!!
This award-winning fax server will allow you to send and receive faxes in a simple and secure manner where no fax boards or phone lines are required. It is used by thousands of companies worldwide and works with Exchange, Lotus and SMTP/POP3 or cloud-based email servers such as Office 365™ and Gmail™.
GFI FaxMaker is easy to install, is light on maintenance and integrates with messaging clients and customized solutions. It seamlessly integrates with mail servers, allowing users to send and receive faxes and SMS messages via their email client. Your company can also search for and back up all faxes in the same way that emails are stored and retrieved on the network.
Also included is an Optional OCR (optical character recognition) module that enhances recognition quality and provides support for over 119 languages, allowing you to search for words or phrases in received faxes for faster retrieval.
This fax server supports connectivity via analog, ISDN, Fax over IP and other online fax services allowing true hybrid faxing as no phone lines or fax boards are required. The fax over IP (FoIP) support integrates with IP-enabled PABXs and Brooktrout’s SR 140 or TE Systems XCAPI technology to send faxes over an IP infrastructure.
All you need is GFI FaxMaker, an account with a supported online fax service and an Internet connection. GFI FaxMaker is extremely flexible, competitively priced and very well-suited for small to medium-sized businesses.
