Recently, at the ITExpo, we got a close look at Sagemcom's XMediusFAX Cloud solution. For those who are unfamiliar, XMedius FAX Cloud leverages internet faxing, into the cloud, without putting a strain on tangible resources, as the name might dictate. MediusFAX Cloud is a full feature enterprise cloud faxing web-based application. With it, users may send and receive faxes as electronic messages, directly from their existing email accounts (fax to email / email to fax). First introduced in 2002, it is the global leading software-only IP fax server solution, offered in three application optimized editions, namely, SP for Service Provider, EE for Enterprise, and X for Express.
Gaining more acceptance as a method of sending and receiving documents, Cloud faxing presents as beneficial to not only businesses, but also the environment. It’s virtually maintenance free, is eco-friendly (paper reduction), reduces hardware, and reduces operational and capital expenses. With XMediusFAX Cloud, workers can fax to remote locations and branches and never worry about busy signals. Faxing via the cloud is not only secure (employing robust standards-based encryption technologies), it’s unlimited in paper volume and scalability.
Sagemcom also offers this solution as a great a la carte option for those subscribing to a VoIP provider that either does not offer FoIP or charges more than a company would like to pay. Using boardless, T.38 fax over IP server, XMediusFAX Cloud is a complete software solution, even containing inbound fax routing methods, whether they be DID, CSID, etc. and/or character recognition based solutions. There are seemingly no limits to its application, as it also has an enhanced Web Services API (application programming interface) to enable flexible integration. This solution comes as the perfect complement with perfect timing, as more and more businesses are moving into the cloud.
