Streamlined Faxing For Office 365 + SharePoint Online

As part of an Office 365 deployment, SharePoint Online is nearly a one-stop shop for sharing and finding digital content.

That's all the more valuable as remote headcount increases and IT budgets tighten.

But there's at least one core issue it doesn't directly solve: how paper documents, like faxes, flow to and from SharePoint in the first place.

With RightFax, Office 365 users can fax to and from SharePoint Online quickly, securely, and without touching a piece of paper.

Office 365 Fax Challenges

Paper-centric legacy faxing leaves some major gaps. The same applies to more limited electronic fax "solutions," which seldom support enterprise-scale workflows, security, or integrations. Generally speaking, users have to:

  • Print and scan every inbound fax destined for SharePoint
  • Print, or at least copy and paste, SharePoint data for outbound faxes
  • Correctly populate cover sheets, fax numbers, and other metadata by hand (even when this information already exists in SharePoint or Office contacts!)
  • Wait for or provide delivery confirmation, and investigate when it's missing
  • Painstakingly create a proper audit trail for sensitive or critical information

Of course, this assumes they have secure, approved access to fax machines and a printer in the first place. For today's heavily work-from-home teams, that's not a sure thing.

How RightFax Modernizes SharePoint Faxing

As with some other tools in the Office 365 suite, RightFax has a native integration with SharePoint Online. Using a secure, industry-standard SMTP or POP3 connection, it opens the door to:

  • Painless, real-time collaboration on fax content, no matter a team's location or time zone
  • A one-click faxing process—as simple as sending email—out of almost any application in the Office 365 suite
  • Automatic barcode reading for instant routing to the right SharePoint Online destination
  • Further integration with optical character recognition (OCR) software for data extraction, indexing, and archival within SharePoint Online
  • Risk mitigation through granular security, down to the individual user and document levels

RightFax Cloud Architecture With Office 365

Just as Office 365 puts your core enterprise applications in the cloud, we can also deploy RightFax in the cloud.

Some organizations prefer fully cloud-based architecture. This minimizes your IT team's burden by putting the RightFax VMs and the telephony itself in fully managed data centers.

Others prefer a partially cloud-based ("hybrid") RightFax deployment. This entails a digital fax solution on local machines/VMs, which RightFax Connect links to the outside world. It's especially common when security or compliance policies demand that data remain on-premises.

Get Started With RightFax For SharePoint Online

Modern faxing with RightFax helps Office 365 customers get the most out of SharePoint Online.

It empowers users to manage, organize, send, and secure information in ways traditional faxing simply cannot support.

Just as importantly, it creates fax automation opportunities that build competitive advantage during challenging times.

In fact, it's not uncommon for a modernized fax workflow to deliver positive ROI in a matter of months.

RightFax-Sharepoint Online integration fundamentally changes how people and programs interact with business-critical information.

That's the reason for rapid ROI, but it also means high stakes and visibility.
