Licensing GFI FaxMaker As Fast As Possible

GFI FaxMaker 2015 is leading fax server solution. FaxMaker is available as a total on-premise application, or hybrid application with hosted hardware. Easy to deploy, and fast on return on investment, GFI FaxMaker saves time and money.

GFI FaxMaker 2015 licensing can appear to be a bit difficult to understand so I hope I can make it as simple as possible to understand. GFI FaxMaker 2015 is licensed by the number of users, the number of fax channels (fax lines) , and options such as the OCR module and or virtual fax hardware such as the SR140. Licenses are also available for additional servers as well.

FrugalBrothers GFI FaxMaker Case Study

This is the video and text from my recent GFI FaxMaker case study. In this video, I share a bit about my background, and my experience with GFI FaxMaker 2015.

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 virtualized 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.

Chris Mills: An Artist Who Founded a Company by Asking the Right Question – BCW443

This week I had the opportunity to talkcmtwpic_copy with Chris Mills, the founder of Chrysalis Communications. Chris is an artist with a passion for design. In Chris’s early years he loved painting and drawing. A former school official tried to convince him that you can’t make money from art, and that he should concentrate on academics.

Chris stayed true to his passion for art and found himself with no prior experience working in the world of graphic design. It was the proverbial trial by fire. When the company began scaling back, Chris found himself working as a freelancer. At an interview with a potentially large prospect for a new website, Chris asked one question that lead to his company today.
