Manage your faxes through your PC with SwyxFax

Think of the amount of money you spend on fax machines, paper and toner cartridges. Then consider the time it takes to install and manage fax systems - especially when they jam or keep failing to send. Also take into account the fact you physically need to be at the fax machine to send and retrieve documents. All this time adds up, costing your business real money.

Wouldn't it be so much easier if you could send faxes electronically without a fax machine and manage faxes through your Outlook application? You could receive faxes just like email messages, wherever you are and, if you need to, you can still print a fax anytime you want to.

SwyxFax, part of the SwyxWare suite of option packs, is a software component installed on a Server (usually the same server on which SwyxWare Essential or SwyxWare Compact is installed). Incoming documents are received by SwyxFax and converted into an image file (e.g. JPEG, TIFF) and delivered to the recipient's inbox.
