etherFAX Brings Secure Document Delivery to Microsoft Teams

August 15, 2022

Microsoft Teams is one of the most used enterprise collaboration tools today. With hybrid workforces and digital communications at an all-time high, these solutions are making it possible for employees to get work done from anywhere.

At the same time, fax continues to be an integral part of many businesses’ communications needs – it is a must-have capability in many industries.  In order to users to truly maximize the potential of their communications platforms, they need to incorporate fax, in addition to their other valuable features. To make it possible for Teams users to send and receive faxes, etherFAX has announced an enhanced integration with Microsoft Teams.

The new DirectFax Messenger offering makes it possible for users to securely send & receive business documents, faxes, and more. The data is transmitted in high resolution and can be sent to traditional fax machines or other apps in the etherFAX ecosystem.

The messages are sent through etherFAX’s Secure Exchange Network (SEN), which uses its patented hybrid cloud-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution for 100 percent secure communications.

The move to include faxing capabilities within Microsoft Teams is an aim at boosting employee productivity levels as it removes the need to move through different applications throughout the day or have redundant documentation. Now they can do it all right through Teams itself.

“We’re proud to continue to grow the etherFAX ecosystem with new app integrations,” said Paul Banco, CEO and co-founder of etherFAX. “Organizations need innovative tools to support remote workforces and improve business processes. The ability to securely send and receive faxes and documents with superior color and clarity directly from Microsoft Teams gives organizations more flexibility and scalability than ever before.”
