I was a chief information officer for a mortgage company in Indianapolis we were looking to build a fax server and doing my research I came across GFI. The product was GFI FaxMaker and that's where I began my relationship with GFI.
The primary value of FaxMaker is the ability to bridge older technologies such as stand-alone fax machines with newer technologies such as email, That’s really where that value comes from. As far as the easy use for the product as well. One of the cool things about FaxMaker is it works with really any email server as for SMTP, so it doesn't really require any type of special integration work it works with all of them just fine.
Compliance is really huge. A lot of organisations have to comply with what's called PCI DSS, for credit card security and HIPAA for medical records and there are certain documents you cannot send securely unless you send it with fax. Faxing also allows you to get an accurate record of when the document was sent and received. When personal faxes, email and file-sharing have reduced that a lot but organizations still really require faxing, especially manufacturing the medical industry, legal finance etc... There are certain documents that have to be sent and received securely.
The flexibility of FaxMaker allows it to be virtualised for example, it allows us to work with the old analog phone lines, digital circuits, hosted communications as well. Those technical benefits alone make FaxMaker a winner for just about any type of installation. The whole dynamics of the software, the flexibility of FaxMaker, the ability to scale it from a smallest install to multi-site operations. The ability to offer FaxMaker both hosted, on-premise and a hybrid solution as well. If there's really anybody that needs a fax solution I can help.
With the economic benefit of FaxMaker is that it saves companies time because people aren't having to run back and forth to fax machines. It saves them on things like fax machines and consumables, toner and paper. It saves them on having all these fax machines sitting around the office and the ability to print and fax from your desktop saves a lot of employees time.
