Microsoft works with Captaris RightFax for Exchange Server 2007


AmVia, South Africa's leading provider of fax solutions and services, has announced that Captaris RightFax works with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and Microsoft will promote RightFax to the Microsoft Unified Messaging community.

Exchange Server 2007 is the next version of Exchange Server, one of the industry's leading servers for e-mail messaging, calendaring and unified messaging. Used by millions of companies worldwide in its earlier iterations, Exchange Server 2007 goes beyond e-mail to deliver more types of communications to the inbox, including faxes and voice mail, as well as offering new capabilities such as voice access from any standard phone.
"RightFax gives  the new Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging the ability to send outbound faxes,"  says Boudje Giljam, sales and marketing director for AmVia, the local distributor for RightFax, which dominates the South African market with more than 70% share of the fax server market. "Accordingly, Microsoft is working closely with Captaris for this functionality, as RightFax is by far the leading offering in this space."
Microsoft will promote RightFax to the Microsoft Unified Messaging community, which includes Microsoft account managers, Microsoft technical specialists for Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft resellers, via the Microsoft Unified Communications newsletter.
Captaris will also be listed as a featured partner for Exchange Unified Messaging and the Microsoft Unified Messaging Toolkit. The sales toolkit will be available to all Microsoft partners via the Microsoft Partner Program Portal.
AmVia will work with Microsoft South Africa product managers and field sales to promote RightFax for Exchange 2007 sales.
"This cooperation between Captaris and Microsoft is important as it demonstrates how RightFax complements Exchange Server 2007," notes Giljam. "It endorses and underscores RightFax's position as the No 1 global fax server."
With more than 70% of the local fax server market and five times the North American market share of its nearest competitor, RightFax is the unquestioned market leader in its space. It helps organisations with their Fax over IP strategy; document management regulatory compliance; integration with multifunction devices; cost savings with inbound and outbound faxing; and easy integration with existing office automation environments.
