Sharp and Faxcore, Inc add network faxing to Sharp OSA enabled MFPs

MAHWAN, NJ, January 18, 2008 -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) and FaxCore, Inc. today announced the validation of the FaxCore Connector for Sharp OSA™ enabled MFPs. With a FaxCore® fax server and the Sharp OSA-developed connector, organizations can fax from their Sharp OSA™-enabled MFPs for less, dramatically shortening ROI time frame due to the efficiency gains from the FaxCore fax server.

Users can send and receive faxes from their PCs as well as fax paper documents from any network connected Sharp MFP through the FaxCore server. Implementing FaxCore with Sharp OSA–enabled MFPs allows users to:

  • Cut in half the number of fax lines and eliminate a security loophole.

  • Utilize FaxCore as a central repository for every fax sent and received.

  • Know who sent what, when it was sent and where it was sent.

  • Automatically retry failed faxes

  • Never lose a received fax since all fax communications are archived.

  • Achieve regulatory compliance.

  • Integrate FaxCore with other Sharp partner program member solutions such as the Liberty IMS™ document management solutions for a comprehensive and integrated electronic office.

The award winning FaxCore fax server offers 21st century architecture based on the Microsoft®.NET™ platform and is a leader in the fax over IP shift taking place in the telecom space. Organizations that implement FaxCore servers with Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs achieve a pure IP based fax solution.“Sharp OSA technology helps businesses tailor the MFP to their business needs and maximize their investment,” said Tom Davis, Vice President, “Faxcore has leveraged the power of Sharp OSA technology to unlock additional value for customers, allowing them to get even more from their technology investment.”
