Press Contact: Erik Wennerstrom
Chelmsford, MA – January, 18, 2007–Biscom (www.biscom.com) a leading provider of enterprise fax and secure document delivery solutions, has announced support for the Microsoft Vista operating system and integrations with the latest Microsoft applications, including Office 2007, Exchange Server 2007, and SharePoint 2007. These applications are supported by Biscom’s FAXCOM Server solutions and the FAXCOM Anywhere hosted fax service.
“Support for the latest Microsoft solutions is always a priority for us,” said George Bartley, VP Engineering for Biscom. “As our customers migrate to the newest Microsoft technologies, we make sure to integrate the new capabilities and test the new environments.” In 2006, Biscom achieved Gold Partner status with Microsoft, a recognition of Biscom’s commitment to and success in supporting Microsoft applications.
The FAXCOM Server solution fax enables an organizations’ users and applications, while tracking all fax activity and consolidating Telco resources. The FAXCOM Anywhere fax service offers the same fax capabilities, but communicates with users via email to send and receive faxes through Biscom’s hosted data center.
All of Biscom’s fax applications will support the Vista operating system, while continuing to support other existing platforms. Biscom’s SMTP Gateway will support Exchange Server 2007 and Outlook 2007 so that users and applications can send, receive, and track faxes through email. The translation component of the FAXCOM Server will support conversion of Office 2007 documents to the TIFF file format for fax transmission. Integration with SharePoint Server 2007 will support outbound faxing as well as delivery of received faxes into SharePoint.
“Our customers have embraced our FAXCOM Server and FAXCOM Suite for Windows applications because they integrate so well into Microsoft environments,” said Mr. Bartley. “The management components utilize Microsoft administration tools and access Microsoft directory services — without extending the Active Directory schema.” User interfaces for FAXCOM Suite for Windows include Outlook and other SMTP mail clients, the FAXCOM Web Client, and Biscom’s desktop fax application, the FAXCOM Client. Applications send and receive faxes programmatically through interfaces such as .NET, Web Services, COM, and SMTP.
Founded in 1986, Biscom pioneered the fax server and host computer integration marketplaces. Biscom has provided many of the world’s largest companies with enterprise communications solutions, most notably its award-winning FAXCOM enterprise fax management solutions. Through acquisitions and the development of new technologies, Biscom has evolved into a provider of multiple product lines, including secure document delivery, file conversion and image viewing and enhanced messaging solutions.
