Enterprise Fax over IP Featured Article
Open Text's Anderson Discusses the Fax of Life
Recently at the Interop 2010 show in Las Vegas, TMC's (News - Alert) CEO Rich Tehrani had a chance to both break the house at baccarat and sit down and talk with Geoffrey Anderson, the senior product manager at Open Text, a vendor focusing on content management and enterprise fax over IP products.
Anderson works in the fax group, he said, adding that they have three product lines in their group right now, with two fax-based products, one of them being Open Text Fax Server, RightFax Edition, formerly known as RightFax, which is their mainline fax server product sold to medium to large enterprises.
They also offer Fax appliance products, smaller-scale appliances for SMBs, which are also well-enabled with capabilities.
"We also have a document management" product, Anderson said, the Open Text Document Server, Alchemy edition, which he described as a "capture and management" product, "strongly tied to our fax products and provides a great archiving application."
He agreed with Tehrani that it's a soup to nuts offering: "Pretty much anything involved with bringing faxes in and out of your organization, we have it covered." Anderson noted that the company has had quite a few announcements recently, that "there's been lots of new stuff happening, we've actually had quite a few announcements recently on our mainline products."
In August 2009, TMC's Erin Harrison reported that the company's flagship fax product, Open Text Fax Server, RightFax Edition, includes features that support compliance efforts, such as secure and encrypted electronic delivery of financial information for added security and privacy.
They also provide a centralized communications hub for corporate information delivery, automated delivery of business information to help safeguard information accuracy and security and tamper-resistant information transmission by delivering information in a non-erasable format.
"Regulations require healthcare organizations to be more efficient and run their organizations more securely to enhance patient service and ensure the privacy and security of private personal health information," she noted at the time.
