Client for Windows: A Workflow-Optimized Fax Client
The FAXCOM® Client is a desktop application that enables users to send, receive and track faxes. It has a folder-based UI with Pending, Sent, Received and Activity folders, and it includes public and private phone books, delivery scheduling, cover page selection and priority assignment.
Users access the easy-to-use Send Fax dialog from the FAXCOM Client toolbar, or they can choose the Biscom Fax Printer to "print" any Windows application document as a fax. Windows users are transferred to the Send Fax dialog with the document they were editing attached as a TIFF file. Users can then click the Add to List button to be returned to the application from which they called the Biscom Fax Printer, or they can open a file in another application, enabling them to build one composite fax with multiple attachments.
The FAXCOM Client offers advanced functionality useful in integrating fax with workflow applications. The Shared Mailbox feature can be an important component of a company's workflow implementation. The Shared Mailbox enables multiple users to have access to the received faxes in a single mailbox. The Get Next Unread Fax feature in the FAXCOM Client and in the FAXCOM Viewer ensures that faxes are processed in the order in which they arrived.
Directory Services Integration
The FAXCOM Client is a component of the FAXCOM Suite for Windows application. FAXCOM Suite for Windows works with any LDAP-compatible directory service - without requiring any extensions to your schema - including Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Domino, Netscape, and NDS. Users can optionally be managed through Active Directory Group Policy.
Administrators can use the familiar Microsoft administration tool to configure all aspects of the fax queues that contain FAXCOM Client users.
