RelayFax Network Fax Manager can automate many faxing related activities, including modem detection, fax scheduling, and inbound fax routing. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and routing rules can be configured to work together for quick faxing of scanned documents. All faxing activities are logged for easy administration and troubleshooting.
RelayFax automatically detects any number of modems that you have installed on the server. You can also add and configure modems manually.
RelayFax can run in a Terminal Services environment. The administration interface, SMTP client, and printer drivers all support operating under Terminal Services.
You can set RelayFax to send faxes to certain locations at specific times in order to reduce long distance charges. RelayFax can also be scheduled to collect faxed email at times when more bandwidth is available.
In addition to many formats such as JPEG, GIF, PNG, and so on, RelayFax can send incoming faxes to their recipients in PDF and Doc formats.
Documents can be scanned via Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for specific fax parameters such as fax numbers, recipient names, company names, and more. You can designate specific identifying text to search for (for example, "FAXTO:" for a fax number) and then RelayFax will look for the appropriate text strings immediately following those identifiers. A text file can also be referenced for inclusion in the comments field of the cover page.
RelayFax can route incoming faxes directly to you. When RelayFax receives an incoming fax it will use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and various other rules-based methods to determine the intended recipients and then route the fax accordingly, attached to an email message.
RelayFax has extensive logging capabilities. Log files can be rotated daily or weekly, and each service can be logged into a separate file. A special debug log is also available.
RelayFax provides the option to apply rules to incoming and outgoing faxes. Rules allow you to specify who is eligible to receive faxes and which mailbox to use, ignore faxes from unknown senders, fax a message without knowing the fax number, and more.
