As more and more companies move to virtual environments, using fax boards and modems becomes problematic.  Add this to the complexity of integrating your fax server with often complex PABX systems; it makes sense to find an alternative way of connecting your fax server to the telephony network.

GFI has done just that.

With GFI FaxMaker, you can choose between two fax services to connect GFI FaxMaker to - no phone lines, no fax boards, no need to integrate with complex PABXs.

So what is a fax service?

Simply stated, fax services act as a big fax board in the cloud.  Instead of installing fax hardware, modems or FoIP software, and connecting phone lines or SIP trunks, GFI FaxMaker can connect directly to a fax service via secure HTTPS connection to send and receive faxes.  The fax service acts as a fax board would, it dials the number designated in the fax and sends the fax across the telephony network to the destination number.

What does it take to use a supported fax service?

GFI FaxMaker supports two fax services, GFI Online Fax Services and etherFAX

  • Step 1 – Choose which fax service you would like to use - pricing between the two services is the same.
  • Step 2 – Purchase a corresponding fax services channel when you purchase GFI FaxMaker.  When purchasing a fax services channel, you will receive a fax number to use.
  • Step 3 – Choose a Fax Services monthly plan that suits your needs.  You may also want to add more fax numbers or port an existing fax number to the service.
  • Step 4 – Add the channels you have purchased to GFI FaxMaker and start sending and receiving faxes without ever having to install modems, fax boards, FoIP or connecting any phone lines.
