Sharp MFPs serve a multitude of needs, but their fax capabilities often become a constraint.
Dedicated fax lines and limited remote capabilities make it hard to keep up with a growing (and highly remote) user base. For organizations still stuck with an ‘off-the-rack’ MFP fax environment, it’s no wonder that fax efficiency and cost-effectiveness tend to lag.
- Rising costs even as workflow remain the same
- Frequent transmission failures with ambiguous or hard-to-fix causes
- Difficulty tracking critical faxes, let alone proving receipt
Fax server integration is the simplest and surest way around those constraints. It turns any Ethernet-equipped Sharp MFP into a fully digital and even paperless fax interface, while keeping the experience users already know.
Integrating Sharp devices with RightFax / Private Fax Cloud®
Sharp’s Open Systems Architecture (OSA) lets our RightFax Private Fax Cloud solution interact with the MFP in sophisticated ways. This means a Sharp OSA fleet can support everything from simple outbound faxes to complex document workflows and automated processing—even without printing in the first place.
- Reliable, secure, audit-ready faxing from anywhere using any device
- No reliance on deprecated copper lines; just an Ethernet connection
- Centralized management of all fax services and users
- Be prepared with a full audit trail of every fax and user/system action
- Give the IT department the ease of central management and flexibility of varied in-house and hosted telecom options
Digital transformation doesn’t mean ditching your Sharp fleet. Rather, it’s about turning your MFDs into digital communication hubs that grow with your team rather than constrain it. And in our experience, the more complex or business-critical your fax workflow, the more specific and measurable the integration benefits become.
