WHY discuss FAX at this Conference?
Corporate “Fax Servers” are like small PBX’s, and hence integrate and co-exist with your overall PBX (and CO) strategy. A Fax Server delivers faxes electronically to the Desktop and/or email (no station device!)
FAX101: Fax is Alive and Well.
More Faxing today than 5 years ago.
~200M standalone fax machines
Vast Amounts of Business are done by Fax, especially paper intensive organizations such as Mortgage, Financial/Banking, Insurance, Healthcare… (EX. Signed Original Documents, Supporting Original Attachments, PO’s, Confirmations, Orders, etc).

WHY discuss FAX at this Conference?
Just like Phones, Fax can be unappreciated – Traditionally “always there, always available” – Until there is an interruption and Business Stops. (Is the PBX the Least Common Denominator??)
Corporate Fax Servers are the heart of Faxing, NOT standalone Fax Machines. Fax Servers MUST be part of your PBX/IP-PBX Strategy… AND your Network, Database and Application Strategies.
