FoIP - Fax over IP network

Modern companies want to work flexibly, with minimal costs. Flexible and multifunctional IP networks, which serve for data, speech and image transmission, are key players in achieving these goals.

The biggest advantage of using a communication network is reducing business costs, along with the additional advanced possibilities that IP networks offer.
One of possible functions of modern IP networks is fax messages transmission. 
Fax messages transmission over IP network increases productivity for 90% in comparison with traditional fax machines:

  • Time saving - no waiting/controlling, by the fax machine, for the end of message transmission
  • Telephone costs reduction - faxing inside the company is free, and the number of needed fax lines decreases significantly
  • Maintenance costs reduction - traditional fax machines become unnecessary
  • Reduction of consumable supplies costs - paper and toner for fax machine are unnecessary 
  • Employee saving - no person is needed to deliver fax messages 

Today's average company (cca 300 employees) spends between 16.000 and 20.000 EUR per year on fax paper! Along with financial saving, it is important to mention the ecological side of the solution - reducing paper, environment is being preserved. Additional advantages of the solution are:

  • Security - receiver directly gets the fax message (into the mailbox)
  • Connection with applications, which use IP technology, in the user's business system
  • Archive - fax server can serve as an automatic system for archiving received and sent fax messages
