What's new in GFI FaxMaker™ 2013?
Released: November 6, 2012
Available now, GFI FaxMaker 2013 offers the following new features and improvements:
Hybrid fax support
GFI FaxMaker 2013 now supports hybrid faxing via etherFAX and GFI Online Fax Service services. This gives you all the benefits of the security and feature-rich on-premise fax server, with the added benefits of cloud-based fax services. H faxing enables you to eliminate the need for phone lines or expensive fax boards.
Support for Office 365™ and Gmail™
GFI FaxMaker 2013 now includes configuration options to enable email-to-fax and fax-to-email for customers in an Office 365 Exchange or Gmail environment. Companies can now take full advantage of their cloud-based email environment with all the security, privacy and rich feature set of an on-premise fax server.
Fax integration with multifunction devices
Through the integration of Nuance eCopy ShareScan SDK, GFI FaxMaker 2013 now supports a selection of multifunction devices (MFDs) from Canon, HP, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Xerox®. MFDs can now send faxes from the same system as users and applications, eliminating the need for multiple phone lines to many devices, and allowing central logging, archiving and retrieval of all faxes in one place.
Enhanced email-to-SMS and SMS-to-email gateway
GFI FaxMaker 2013 supports multiple GSM devices and SMS providers concurrently, allowing for business-level volume text messaging. All SMS communications are logged centrally, giving full archive and audit access to aid compliance.
GFI FaxMaker 2013 supports silent installation of the fax server software, providing fast, easy, automated deployment. This is of particular benefit to companies deploying multiple fax servers for high availability, load balancing, disaster recovery and geographically distributed deployments.
