How Cloud Fax Works
Email to Fax
Once your account is activated, simply attach your documents to an email message and send it to
When using our faxing service we generate cover pages on demand and can even include the body of your email message as a note on the cover page. Cover pages can be fully customized for your organization and controlled at a user, department or company level.
Print to Fax
Concord provides a Print2fax driver which allows one-click faxing from any application which supports a print function.
Concord Print2Fax installs as a software application and appears like any printer, so customers can fax directly from any application to any fax number worldwide as easily as printing.
You can send faxes using Concord’s FolderFax to simply drop fax documents into a network folder. Documents placed in the folder, are transferred to Concord’s cloud platform securely, where they are immediately sent to the recipient. FolderFax supports multiple folders, each having their own default behaviors.
Sending and receiving faxes with Microsoft Office has never been easier. Whether you are using Microsoft Office installed directly on your computer or accessing Office 365 through a browser, Concord’s cloud fax service is secure and simple-to-use.
Concord notifies you via email as soon as your fax has been successfully delivered. You can also track all your outgoing and incoming faxes using the Concord Portal.
Enterprise fax users receive their faxes within seconds as an attachment (TIF, PDF or XPS) to an email message. Received faxes can be sent to multiple users or distribution lists, and individual users can even receive faxes sent to multiple fax numbers. Incoming fax messages contain detailed information; number of pages, time, sender, etc. All your faxes are stored in your email and can be sorted into folders and backed up along with your regular email messages. Other fax services include faxes automatically being printed or delivered to network folders. Other inbound fax delivery options include faxes automatically made available via the Concord API’s
Concord FaxAssist is a Windows utility (runs as windows service), which automates simple integration tasks for inbound faxes. Whether it’s printing faxes to a network printer or delivering documents to a network folder, FaxAssist makes it a simple job of configuration.
FaxAssist is commonly used to enable received faxes to initiate internal workflows, trigger optical character recognition processes (OCR), or integrate faxes into in-house document management systems.
Convert inbound fax images to fully searchable PDF or text files using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. OCR is the process of recognizing text in an image and then extracting that text. Fax OCR automates the entire conversion process and can be set up without disrupting your existing users. For more advanced capture of structured data, please our Cloud Capture page.
Configure a destination inside your own network to store a copy of all sent and received faxes (for all or for groups of users) for as long as you might need them. Whether you prefer to have your faxes delivered to your own document management or email archiving solution, we give you everything you need to support your audit and compliance requirements for as long as necessary.
