Save on Hardware, Software and Communication Costs
A reliable, high-volume faxing infrastructure requires high-end hardware and software, such as a Brooktrout fax board, dedicated fax server machine, and fax server software. InterFAX eliminates these upfront costs with an enterprise-grade hosted fax service, offering unlimited scalability, high availability, and a rich set of online management capabilities.

How the InterFAX Service Works
InterFAX can integrate with any enterprise system, but the most common scenario is mail-to-fax: users send a document by email, specifying the fax number in the target address, and our online fax servers transmit the document by fax.
Any number of users in your organization can use our service, by defining multiple email addresses as 'allowed senders.' InterFAX accepts faxes from these senders, and will associate them with a single username. An entire domain may also be defined as an ‘allowed sender’. Faxes received by our servers are forwarded directly to the relevant user’s email inbox
With our online fax service you eliminate at once all maintenance activity, freeing up scarce IT time. No more troubleshooting, support calls, licensing issues, fax board installation problems, and driver upgrades.
High Speed Fax Broadcasting with No Fax Boards
InterFAX enables distributing large numbers of faxes economically and efficiently. For example, transmitting a one-page fax to 10,000 recipients may take between 1.5 to 3.5 hours.
With InterFAX, you manage your fax broadcasting distribution lists online. Import recipients into one or several lists, and send the fax to thousands of recipients with a single click. We support up to 20,000 recipients per list, and you can create as many lists as needed.
With hundreds of lines, our servers can handle a large number of faxes at any given moment, so that you are not dependent on your fax server hardware or phone line capacity. Senders never receive a busy signal, and incoming faxes are forwarded to your users within seconds.
In case your email server is down, you can define an inbound backup routing policy that forwards incoming faxes to an alternative fax machine. Additionally, your faxes can always be retained on our servers for subsequent retrieval.
Faxes transmitted from your premises to our servers can be encrypted so that they cannot be read on their way. The ‘delete fax after completion’ option ensures that your faxes are permanently removed from our servers after being sent, so that sensitive data is not exposed. You can also choose to encrypt incoming faxes forwarded to you via email.
Our service supports the most stringent regulations for data security and privacy, including the American Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
