Faxing has a long history as a trusted and secure form of communication, and it’s still at the heart of many business processes and workflows today. If any of your business operations rely on fax, it may be time to consider an enterprise fax server solution or an enterprise cloud based fax service.

Consider these top three reasons to update your fax environment:

1) Increased Productivity: The latest fax solutions turn formerly paper-based faxing into electronic-based faxing, essentially taking the “paper” out of the process wherever possible. Fax servers/cloud fax solutions can integrate with desktop environments and email systems, which allows employees to send and receive fax documents directly from their computer. This greatly improves worker efficiency by letting users work from their preferred environments. 

2) Reduced Costs: Companies that rely on paper-based fax machines know how time-consuming, costly, and frustrating they can be. By implementing electronic-based faxing and getting rid of physical fax machines and phone lines, you can reduce both the amount of money required to support these legacy fax machines as well as reduce your IT support costs. The right fax solution helps you accelerate business processes in a cost-effective manner.

3) Improved Compliance: Businesses face serious risks from noncompliance, with both financial and reputational ramifications. Government regulations and standards are constantly evolving, impacting how businesses around the world secure and manage their information. As pressure grows to more closely manage fax communications and document processes, leading organizations are turning to enterprise fax solutions to help them secure, track, and store information for compliance purposes.

With more than 10,000 RightFax solutions deployed worldwide, Advantage Technologies is a leader in architecting, installing and supporting on-premise and cloud-based enterprise fax and automated electronic document delivery solutions in North America.  Data security, privacy, and sovereignty are key components of any RightFax solution, providing reliable exchange of even the most sensitive records, whether via an on-premise fax server, or in the cloud with multiple cloud fax options.

Cyber-attacks on healthcare organizations are on the rise. The percentage of healthcare organizations that have reported a criminal cyber-attack has risen to 40 percent in 2013from 20 percent in 2009, according to an annual survey by the Ponemon Institute think tank on data protection policy.

According this recent Reuters article, stolen health credentials can go for about 10 or 20 times the value of a U.S. credit card number. Medical identity theft is often not immediately identified by a patient or their provider, giving criminals years to abuse such credentials. According to experts who have investigated cyber-attacks on healthcare organizations, fraudsters use stolen data to create fake IDs to buy medical equipment or drugs that can be resold, or they combine a patient number with a false provider number and file made-up claims with insurers.

Last month, the FBI warned healthcare providers to guard against cyber-attacks after one of the largest U.S. hospital said Chinese hackers had broken into its computer network and stole personal information of 4.5 million patients. It is no surprise that secure faxing is increasing throughout the healthcare industry, as faxing remains one of the most secure ways of transmitting sensitive information, as it is a secure, end point to end point transmission.

RightFax and Fax2Mail cloud solutions offer a secure method of transmitting protected health information, while supporting compliance by digitizing paper-based protected health information for private, secure, and auditable electronic distribution.  In addition, the new RightFax Encryption Module encrypts all fax images stored in the RightFax Image Directory, as well as preventing any unauthorized access to the fax images.

With more than 10,000 RightFax solutions deployed worldwide, Advantage Technologies is the leader in architecting, installing and supporting leading RightFax fax solutions in North America.  Data security, privacy, and sovereignty are key components of any RightFax solution, providing reliable exchange of even the most sensitive records, whether via an on-premise fax server, or in the cloud with multiple cloud deployment options.

RightFax 10.6 is now tested and certified with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) 10.5 and Unity Connection 10.  

OpenText RightFax connects to telephony environments using Cisco Voice and Unified Communications Products through Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) technology and using Fax-over-IP (FoIP) technologies. In a FoIP solution, OpenText RightFax can connect to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco IOS Voice Gateways, and Cisco Universal Gateways over IP networks. This integration to send and receive fax documents utilizes either Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) or H.323 and T.38 real-time Fax-over-IP.

Common document delivery solutions using OpenText RightFax and Cisco Voice and Unified Communications products consist of the following components:
• OpenText RightFax version 9.4 FP1 SR2 or later, containing either Dialogic® Brooktrout® SR140 software-only FoIP, or TR1034-series IP-enabled fax boards.
• Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM)
• Cisco IOS Voice Gateways

Cisco Unity Connection can integrate with the Cisco Fax Server so that users can do the following while on the phone or while using the Connection Web Inbox (Connection 8.5 and later) or Messaging Inbox

• Receive faxes that are sent to the fax extension for the user. Depending on the system configuration, faxes will be available in the user mailboxes or in the user IMAP clients.
• Forward the faxes that they receive to a fax machine for printing.
• Forward the faxes that they receive to another user.


The Fax2Mail Connector for Xerox MFPs is now available. The Fax2Mail Xerox MFP connector gives Fax2Mail users the ability to access their accounts on the Xerox ColorQube 8700’s user interface. Now Fax2Mail users can walk up to the Xerox MFP and transmit fax documents through the cloud, enhancing worker productivity and cutting telephony expense.

We are excited to announce that Advantage Technologies was named the third quarter 2014 IX Partner Leader by OpenText! Advantage Technologies was recognized for their top performance and demonstrated leadership in implementing and supporting OpenText Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions. We were judged against the thousands of partners within the IX (Information Exchange) program. This achievement highlights the hard work of our employees, and our dedication to provide exceptional customer service. We extend our gratitude to all our customers who help make this achievement possible.

 


Organizations across all industry seek to efficiently and cost effectively streamline their workflows. If your organization relies on a fax server solution, you may have conisdered moving to a cloud-based fax service. Cloud-based fax service could great alternative to an on-premise fax system. We have outlined the top 5 things to consider before migrating to a cloud based fax service:

1. Fax Image Retention - Where are your fax images stored? Since most cloud-based fax service providers leverage "store and forward" messaging systems, customers need to determine if their data and images can rest on the service provider's network for any period of time. Corporate security teams will typically work with Advantage in collaboration with a fax service provider to understand the cloud providers network resiliency measures, encryption standards, and security capabilities.

Additionally, customers need to make sure they address and understand security and/or encryption between the two networks - customer and provider; our fax service providers offer a number of solutions, including Enforced TLS encryption.

2. Inbound Fax Number (DID) Portability - Can I keep my existing fax numbers? One of the first steps in our process is to gather a list of all existing inbound fax numbers to verify if every number is portable. If any of the existing fax numbers are not portable, we then determine if any "non-portable" fax numbers can be changed to an alternative, suitable inbound fax number that the fax service provider can assign. If the numbers are not portable and cannot be changed; this may hamper your ability to leverage a cloud-based fax service. We are acutely aware that for many of our customers, inbound faxing is critical to their existing workflow and cannot be easily modified. This is typically not an issue for customers migrating from an on-premise fax server solution utilizing outbound fax only.

It is important to note that not all cloud fax service providers are created equal. Many fax service providers will retain ownership of your fax number, even if you decide to cancel their service. When you work with Advantage, you retain ownership of the number, even if you decide to cancel.

In rare cases when a number cannot be ported, call forwarding can be implemented from the phone system, or a Market Expansion Line (MEL) directly from the telephony provider. Please note that call forwarding is always an option, but may negate some of the benefits of the cloud solution.

3. On-Premise vs Cloud-Based Feature Set - Are all faxing features currently available in the cloud-based solution? Cloud faxing has evolved considerably since its inception, and will only continue to become a more powerful and robust solution. Whether the cloud feature set/workflow will work for your organization all depends on what you are trying to accomplish with a fax solution.

We work closely with our customers to conduct a detailed, side-by-side, comparison when looking to convert from on-premise fax systems to a cloud-based fax service solution. This allows your users to compare the differences between the two solutions and related workflow. This will help you determine which solution is the best fit, and also to set expectations should you decide to move to the cloud. Advantage Technologies can provide you with a demo account to evaluate the service.

In our experience, organizations already using their email client to send, receive, manage, and archive their inbound and outbound faxes are likely to have a seamless transition to a cloud-based fax solution. Our cloud fax service providers generally allow users to send and receive faxes using any on-premise, hosted, or cloud-based email system.

Finally, customers that want the best of both worlds - on-premise fax server software features and functionality and the ability to bypass on-premise phone systems and services can take advantage of our "hybrid" fax solution. Hybrid fax solutions leverages your existing on-premise fax system with a cloud-based fax service provider for fax telephony resources.

4. Third-party Application Integration - Can my existing third-party applications integrate with a cloud-based solution? In most cases, yes, but some evaluation may be necessary to determine which workflows you have in place and whether any changes may need to be applied to your fax integrations and/or workflows. Advantage Technologies will perform an assessment of your current working environment to help determine whether your applications can integrate with a cloud-based fax solution.

All of our fax service partners provide a number of integration options for customers. Advantage Technologies can leverage available API’s in order to integrate your application with the cloud-based fax solution.

5. MFP Device Connection - Can I continue to use my MFP device as I do with my on-premise server today? MFP integration with on-premise fax systems provides walk-up faxing for users without the need for local fax lines and fax boards on the device itself. This helps reduce the cost of ownership and gives users a single fax repository - their fax or email inbox to track, view, and manage faxes. In many cases, our cloud-based fax service providers can integrate with your existing MFPsby connecting devices securely over the Internet or via VPN. However, the existing workflow and/or two-way communication between your on-premise fax server and the MFP may not be replicated exactly by the cloud-based fax service provider.

No matter what you decide, Advantage Technologies is with you every step of the way. Leverage our expertise in deciding on whether a cloud-based fax service solution is a good fit for your organization.

Although it’s not mentioned in the installation or admin guides, you can now bulk import coversheets in RightFax 10.6, as opposed to uploading coversheets separately in previous versions of RightFax. Just go to the edit menu and select “Import Cover Sheets” while in the coversheets entry in the EFM Tree-View:

You can then select the coversheets from your old RightFax server (or other location) by either Shift-Clicking (to get a series of files) or Ctrl-Clicking (to select specific files) from the explorer view that pops up:

As noted in the file type drop down, RightFax 10.6 supports Word (doc, docx), HTML (html, htm), MSHTML (mht,mhtml) or PCL coversheets.
