A FACSys® Fax Messaging Gateway Whitepaper How To Manage Faxing From Your Computer: Let Me Count the Ways!

CaptureImagine a world where the fax machines all fly (even making that Jetson’s cartoon vehicle sound).

They come to your desk on command and fly away when you are done, delivering and sending faxes of all sorts. The best part: you are sitting the whole time, barely lifting a finger. What a stress reliever and time saver that would be! Can you relate to this photo? There are five ways to fax in the future, but the future is NOW!

1. FACSys Desktop Client (print to fax)
2. FACSys Mail Printer (email to fax)
3. Email to Fax – with attachments
- Outlook/Exchange
- Lotus Notes
- Groupwise
- SMTP
4. Fax Enabled Applications
- With embedded codes
- With AFMSDK (Active Fax Messaging
Software Developing Kit)
5. Web Agent

The FACSys Desktop Client provides security and economy. Important faxes are no longer left sitting in the open. They are protected in the user’s computer and not left at oldfashioned fax machines for others to see or take by accident. The Desktop is a great time saver because it is the essence of the flying fax machine; it is literally on your desktop. No more wasted time walking to the fax machine, filling out the cover page, dialing the number, feeding paper into the machine, waiting for the confirmation slip and walking back to your desk. Not only that but you can also send multiple faxes at the same time; no need to enter the fax number in ten times. Did we also mention no wasted paper, toner or cost to file or shred the temporary document? Simply print to fax!

With routing tools provided by DID (Direct Inward Dial) telephone service, (also known in the digital world as DNIS (Dialed Number Identification Service)), inbound faxes can be AUTOMATICALLY routed to a single user’s Desktop Client and/or their e-mail inbox, to a workgroup or to a folder on a network share of your choice.

The FACSys Mail Printer allows you to send documents to people’s fax machines and other faxservers by using your email application. No matter what type of email application that you use: Outlook/Exchange, Lotus Notes, GroupWise or SMTP, FACSys uses it and sends documents and attachments right o any fax enabled device. Instead of typing in an email address; you use a fax address which includes the target fax machine’s number and your fax is sent.
