Organizations depend on fax for secure, compliant, auditable, and reliable communications. Fax use is expected to remain high, and will increase yearly as millions of business-critical documents continue to be faxed every day. With voice over IP (VoIP) now commonplace, fax over IP (FoIP) allows organizations to exchange high volumes of these business-critical documents over their VoIP networks.
For companies extending communication strategies with IP-based document delivery, using software-only fax solutions such as RightFax helps facilitate these efforts. This also future-proofs an IP network investment by providing a scalable architecture and easing the transition from traditional PSTN to IP communications. Importantly, RightFax integrates directly with all the most popular business systems, including those provided by market leader CISCO. RightFax 10.5 is duly certified by CISCO to work with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) and Unity Connection version 9, and has been recently approved for CISCO’s Solutions Incentive Program (SIP). RightFax 10.6 is now tested and certified with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) 10.5 and Unity Connection 10.
Effective FoIP solutions leverage IP network resources, enhance unified communications, and speed investment returns on IP equipment and VoIP applications. Additional benefits include:
- Improved document and communication security
- Reduced document delivery costs
- Resource consolidation
- Simplified IT management
- Bridged data and voice networks
- Enhanced compliance (i.e. with HIPAA, SOX, GLBA)
- Server virtualization
Centralizing and consolidating fax also reduces administrative costs, eliminates fax machines and consumables (often by leveraging MFPs), and unifies voice, fax, and data onto a single network.
