eFax Router

eFax Router is a configurable Windows application that allows the auto-download of faxes for one or multiple fax numbers over a secure Internet connection. Based on user-defined settings, the application checks to see if any new faxes have arrived on the specified fax numbers, downloads these faxes and the associated metadata, and then performs one or more of the following tasks:
  1. Saves faxes into admin-designated folders.
  2. Prints faxes to network shared printers.
  3. Executes a templated command line using the fax’s image and metadata as parameters.
Users can configure the application to delete faxes from eFax Corporate®, or leave them on the server to complement their organization’s disaster recovery strategies or fax storage period requirements.

Typical Users

Typical users would be organizations – especially those in regulated industries – that use fax as a critical part of their daily information workflow. Highly configurable, eFax Router automates routing and printing services, changing eFax Corporate from a tool that requires monitoring and access into a tool that provides intelligent fax routing with minimal human interaction and monitoring.

The eFax Router Admin Interface

The interface for the eFax Router Admin is simple and compact. Here you perform the three easy configuration tasks that will allow your fax router instance to manage faxes according to your workflow needs and requirements. These tasks are:

With a few key pieces of information — your Application ID, your API Key, and the eFax® User ID for each user handled by the service — it takes only a few minutes to set up the fax router and get your faxes to where they need to be.
