Setting the Industry Standard for Speed and Security
The new RightFax Internet Connector marks a significant change in the
face of the fax market by offering businesses tangible improvements to
the way faxes are transmitted. By providing an internet connection
point between two RightFax fax servers, the RightFax Internet Connector
enables businesses to:
Decrease the cost of fax transmission - The RightFax Internet Connector provides a non-telephony route to
send faxes to other RightFax users. The fax is routed via the connector
to another RightFax Fax Server anywhere in the world, eliminating
Increase the speed of faxing - Because the fax is transmitted via the RightFax Internet Connector,
businesses can now send hundreds of pages exponentially faster than via
traditional faxing over the public switched network or PSTN.
Improve security and privacy - With the RightFax Internet Connector, faxing has never been more
secure. Each RightFax fax number used by the RightFax Internet
Connector is individually registered and verified, helping to ensure
that each number belongs to the intended recipient. Each fax
transmission is also encrypted for higher information security and
privacy. RightFax is the first solution ever to offer this level of
rigor in authenticating fax numbers.
Powerful New Integration Capabilities
OpenText has long been a market leader in providing the most current and
extensive set of application and device connectors. RightFax 10.5
expands on this collection with the latest updates:
New interface - A Web Services API is now available to integrate with RightFax for
custom applications independent of vendor, platform, and language.
OpenText eDOCS integration - An OpenText eDOCS connector is now available to support full
functionality between OpenText eDOCS 5.3, OpenText's content management
solution for law firms, and RightFax.
New SAP integration - SAP Connector now includes Unicode support and System Landscape
Directory (SLD) registration.
New MFP integrations - A new personalized, interactive connector is now available for
Hewlett-Packard OXPd devices.
Clear, Easy-to-Use Communications
OpenText strives not only to provide its customers with the most
innovative and powerful solutions on the market, but is also the
easiest to use. While RightFax 10.5 maintains the original faxed image
for compliancy and user familiarity, significant enhancements have been
made to the product's look and feel, including:
Image enhancements - RightFax now de-skews incoming fax images to help correct their
orientation. In addition, images are de-noised to remove scan artifacts
and transmission noise.
Improved user interface - The overall look and feel of the RightFax FaxUtil, Web Client, and
Enterprise Fax Manager have been redesigned and updated with new icons
to provide a fresh look without changing the functionality to which
users are accustomed.
Improved Performance and Scalability
RightFax 10.5 offers businesses several new enhancements that help
improve performance and scalability in any RightFax environment.
New hierarchical image file storage - Each fax images is stored in its own individual subfolder,
facilitating consistent server performance over time.
Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) for outbound faxes - RightFax now leverages MSMQ for scheduling and delivering outbound
faxes, which efficiently processes high volumes of documents, and
allows full scalability and utilization of RightFax licensed channels.
