Esker VSI-Fax 5.1 offers flexibility and robust functionality

Esker Software, a leading provider of intelligently automated document delivery solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Esker VSI-Fax 5.1, a multi-platform fax server running on UNIX, Linux or Windows. VSI-Fax 5.1 offers a scalable, cost-effective desktop or production fax solution that allows an organization to quickly fax-enable any application and to expand user access as needs grow.

New features include:

* More robust and reliable fax core server - numerous updates and improvements have been made covering VSI Fax client, core server reliability and a new modem architecture layout.

* Support of Brooktrout and Eicon Fax Boards Esker VSI 5.1 now supports fax boards from two of the leading suppliers world-wide offering faster transmission speed and more reliability.

* Extended API capabilities offering a rich set of choices to integrate within your applications Esker VSI-Fax 5.1 enables applications with an easy-to-use interface for custom fax application development or integration from Visual Basic, Visual C++, C#, JavaScript, and Visual Basic Script.

Adding support for analogue fax boards was a high priority in this new version as demanded by our customers. says Eric Bussy, Director Marketing at Esker Software. We have chosen Brooktrout and Eicon, both highly regarded for their quality fax board product lines. Listening to our customers is a principal objective to ensure they receive best-value from the solutions we offer as we continue to expand our performance and feature set to address market needs."

Aside from the new features listed above Esker has updated several of the staple features and add-on options that have added to the success of Esker VSI-Fax. Using the fax merge feature users can quickly merge faxes from desktop productivity suites such as Microsoft Office creating a personal touch. Automated routing of inbound faxes allows user to receive their faxes via email, on the printer, or from other applications.

The principal advantage of VSI 5.1 is the Command Console, says Timothy Mach, Hardware System Developer at Medent Community Computer Services Inc. The Command Console not only offers ease in configuring the software, but adding or changing devices and classes has never been so simple. Also with the new improved Fax Interface Module we are no longer having inbound issues when the sender is using an older fax modem or board.

Additional enhancements and options include the ability to combine the latest addition of the Fax on Demand Connector, which allows companies to take advantage of outsourced fax delivery without adding hardware or dedicated phone lines, creating an ideal solution to avoid peak capacity problems such as end-of-month invoicing.
