IP communication technologies are growing at an incredible rate and are fast becoming the de facto in the electronic document delivery realm. Several business trends are driving this growth, including decreasing costs for IP networks, an increasingly mobile workforce and a focus on a reliable, interoperable and streamlined communication.

Galdon Data director Sebastian Wade says as fax-over-IP technologies advance, organisations of all sizes can adopt a unified communication strategy and benefit by consolidating a fax server system into their IP communications backbone.
“By enabling users to send faxes over any IP-based network, fax-over-IP is positioned to leverage infrastructure investments and reduce costs by consolidating and simplifying network and equipment management. The result is a centralised and standardised system for handling business processes, applications and communication.”
The adoption of fax in a converged IP environment can eliminate or reduce analogue and ISDN lines, leading to additional cost savings. An effective fax-over-IP solution that integrates with IP network gateways or a unified communications environment will also speed return on investment in IP equipment and VoIP applications.
The network-based fax server application is the true engine behind enterprise-wide electronic document delivery. The fax server acts as a centralised hub for securely and cost-effectively exchanging all types of documents. It captures business documents from a variety of desktop or back-office applications and applies rules for processing, formatting, tracking and delivering them over a telephone system.
Wade says by using RightFax, companies can securely and efficiently deliver business information from virtually any application via fax, email, print devices or over the Internet. “RightFax is the leading fax server and document delivery software with a market share nearly three times larger than it’s nearest global competitor. With more than 20 years experience and tens of thousands of customers across the globe, RightFax delivers outstanding value and performance for document-centric business applications.”
Fax software delivers a significant reduction in fax and document delivery costs by eliminating the need for paper-based delivery, stand-alone fax machines and associated maintenance, supply, equipment and labour costs.
Network fax software integration with MFPs consolidates document development, duplication and distribution capabilities making a more connected, efficient work environment. Tested and/or certified fax software integrations with MFPs from companies such as Canon, HP, Sharp, and Xerox make the most of MFP and network fax infrastructure investments.
