Chapter 6: MFP Connectors

Advantage Insights:

  • Explain the importance of faxing with MFPs via a native or universal connection to the fax server
  • Differentiate between the two types of RightFax MFP Connectors: Universal & Named

RightFax & MFP Connectors

MFP integrations are especially important if there is a paper document that needs to be faxed. By scanning the document on a connected MFP, the scanned copy becomes an electronic document that can then be sent via the fax server. The use of multi-function printers is growing, and organizations can significantly benefit from faxing with MFPs via a native or universal connection to the fax server. Ideal applications include scan-to-fax and auto-print upon receipt of a fax when paper-based processes are still required.

Universal vs. Named

RightFax offers two types of connectors: Universal (SMTP & XML-based) and named (Ricoh, Xerox, Konica Minolta, and HP specific). With either type of connector, you effectively add RightFax fax send capability to the MFP without the need to have dedicated analog lines connected to each device or to purchase expensive embedded MFP fax kits.

Organizations with a large fleet of MFPs can use a single RightFax Server to easily transmit documents from multiple MFPs rather than maintaining individual phone lines for each individual MFP.

RightFax provides fully integrated faxing with the following MFP brands:

  • Ricoh
  • Xerox
  • HP
  • Konica Minolta
  • Canon

If your organization deals with a high-volume of fax communications transmitted through your stand-alone MFP and you would like to improve productivity, reduce paper-related costs, and increase document security, then RightFax is the solution for you.

Benefits of RightFax MFP Integration

Companies gain significant benefits by using RightFax to integrate network faxing capabilities with their multi-function products (MFPs):

Cost control
Consolidates resources and eliminates the need for multiple standalone fax machines, modems, phone lines and supplies by centralizing Fax Server Services at MFPs from HP, Konica Minolta, Sharp and Xerox.

Optimize IT infrastructure investments
Optimizes IT infrastructure investments through integrations with MFPs from HP, Konica Minolta, Sharp and Xerox as well as email, document management, workflow and other applications to make a more efficient, connected work environment.

Simplified deployment and management
Centralizes document development, duplication and delivery functions on an integrated networked solution using the MFP Module and network-enabled devices.


By integrating your MFP with RightFax, your organization can reduce costs and boost employee efficiency by creating a personalized fax experience at every device.

In our final chapter, we’ll review the multiple third-party apps that integrate with RightFax to extend the value of your IT investments, including vertical apps in healthcare, legal, and financial services.
