Quadrant Software Releases FastFax V4.7.0

Updates eFax servers for the iSeries 400 and Windows enterprise

TAMPA, FL -- May 13, 2006 -- Quadrant Software today announced the immediate availability of version V4.7.0 of its line of eFax servers for the iSeries 400 and Windows enterprise.

The V4.7.0 release is available for all versions of FastFax including FastFax/Enterprise, FastFax/Ultra, and FastFax/LAN.

FastFax replaces manual fax machines with secure batch and interactive faxing from iSeries 400 running mission-critical business applications such as Infor, Oracle (JD Edwards), and SSA Global Technologies. FastFax products allow users to transmit, receive, and centrally manage their faxes, and in some cases e-mails, directly from their desktop.

Enhancements for FastFax/Enterprise V4.7.0 include:

Automatic Filing and Indexing of Faxes: FastFax automatically saves all faxes and e-mails -- both inbound and outbound -- as either a TIF or PDF file within a designated directory. Additionally, the FastFax administrator can easily determine the indexing criteria for those documents - thus allowing users to quickly find and retrieve saved communications and enhance document management and imaging efforts. FastFax also integrates with archival packages such as IntelliChief, Vanguard, Gauss, and RVI.

Automatic Inbound Fax Confirmation: In addition to the alerts provided in previous releases, FastFax now alerts senders that their faxes have been received. Upon receipt of a fax from a designated source, FastFax will automatically send a one page confirmation containing an image of the received transmission to the sender, thus strengthening the effectiveness of the communication channels.

Increased Integration and Features: Additional API commands have been added to FastFax V4.7.0 thus providing for additional integration and features, including:

  • Send e-mails in batch, as well as affix documents as individual attachments or combine them into a single attachment. This improves communications by allowing users to send a single e-mail to a recipient versus bombarding them with numerous e-mails.

  • Integrate FastFax with business applications using XML and, consequently, update an application running on an iSeries 400 or Windows platform with the transmission status of the outgoing documents.

  • Increased integration for IntelliChief - Quadrant Software's comprehensive document management and imaging solution - for a complete Paperless Process Management solution that allows users to go paperless by intelligently managing all of their documents electronically.

Faster Disaster Recovery: FastFax V4.7.0 protects the continuity of business by allowing administrators to more quickly switch to a backup FastFax server, making disaster recovery less dependent on manual intervention.

Expanded Support for Managing Inbound and Outbound Faxes: Now supports clients of: Lotus Domino 7.0 and Novell GroupWise 7.0. In addition, all FastFax products now support IBM iSeries Operating System V5R4.


FastFax/Enterprise V4.7.0 starts at $10,700(USD)for new purchases. Upgrade is free for existing customers on maintenance who should realize substantial cost savings.

Version 4.7.0 is available immediately.
