The Fax module
takes spools that have been reformatted by the Word Module,
and faxes them automatically. Papirus provides standard faxing
features - automatic redials, cover pages and more
and allows any user to view the status of faxes from any green-screen,
and resend or re-route them. Above all, the Papirus design
engine means that faxes can be formatted with customized fonts,
colors, tables and graphics.
The Fax Module allows end-users to send faxes manually, by
specifying what to send and to whom. Alternatively, faxes
can be sent automatically: Papirus gets the sending parameters
(recipient's number, subject line, etc.) from data fields
in the spool or from external CMG commands. A scheduling feature
allows faxes to be sent at regular intervals or when discount
- Automated faxing - Papirus
saves the need to printing invoices or packing lists and
then manually fax them. The Fax Module can automatically
fax documents when discount rates apply.
- Replacing mail with fax
it is now accepted practice to send certain types
of business documents, such as purchase orders, pro forma
invoices or packing lists, by fax. Instead of using slow,
costly delivery, fax it with Papirus.
- Saves labor and communication
costs - Papirus does not require end-users to physically
operate a fax machine, and can send faxes during non-peak
hours. This reduces the amount of work associated with sending
documents and saves telephony costs.
- Visually attractive faxes
- the Papirus design engine allows you to send graphically
enhanced documents directly from AS/400 applications, with
your company logo, drawings, customized fonts, etc.
- Reduces human error
when faxes are send manually, wrong numbers can be dialed
and pages can be forgotten or mis-fed. Papirus derives destination
numbers from the database and sends faxes automatically
using a robust fax server.
- Reliability - Papirus
keeps accurate track of all the faxes sent, reports transmission
errors and line-busy signals, and redials automatically
when these occur.
- High speed and capacity
- a single Papirus Server can process up to 1,200 pages
per hour, using up to 24 telephone lines to fax. Capacity
can be increased further by running several Papirus Fax
servers in parallel.
