Banksia Software Launches Zetafax 2006



Equisys has launched Zetafax 2006, a major enhancement to its highly successful Zetafax network fax server software that enables employees to send and receive faxes quickly and easily from their desktop and laptop PC.
Zetafax 2006 coincides with unprecedented high level interest in the role of IT strategy in meeting compliance legislation. Compliance remains the number one issue for organizations across many sectors, especially financial services, healthcare and local government sectors, as regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley and the Data Protection Act come into force.
Zetafax 2006 helps IT Managers meet increasing Board level demands for IT departments to support compliance-related targets. For instance, all faxes sent and received with Zetafax 2006 can be stored electronically for archive and retrieval. Sensitive and confidential documents can be kept private by faxing directly from PC to PC, and fax audit trails can be maintained.
As well as supporting compliance requirements, Zetafax 2006 also helps IT Managers cope with the growing use of the fax as a mass marketing tool. For example, as well as offering a range of new features to make sending faxes much easier, Zetafax 2006 also includes a Junk Fax Filter, providing an effective way of dealing with increasing amounts of fax spam.
By really looking at the issues facing our customers, we have developed a new version of Zetafax which goes beyond simply sending and receiving faxes, said Chris Oswald, CEO of Equisys.
Compliance legislation and fax spam are just two key issues which Zetafax 2006 helps to address. Our new fax creation tool means that faxing is now even faster and easier for users which by definition means Zetafax is easier for IT Managers to manage, continued Oswald. It also means that businesses can deliver a better level of service to their customers at a time when demands on customer service are higher than ever.
New Zetafax 2006 User Feature Details
Zetafax 2006 offers users a radically improved fax-creation interface. It gives users the ability to view their fax on screen as they create it, just as the recipient will see it.
The new, highly intuitive fax creation wizard simplifies the process of preparing a new fax, and adding coversheet notes. The fax can then be previewed in thumbnail and full view before sending.
Users also benefit from a new Zetafax Viewer so they can edit and annotate faxes received via email or via the Zetafax Client, without the need for 3rd party imaging products.
The new Zetafax Viewer features also give users more control so they can:
Forward a fax as a fax or as an email attachment
Edit the fax as a thumbnail view
Delete pages or rearrange the page order
Export the image as a fax image, bitmap file, or PDF
Add highlights, underlining, free-hand drawing, and free text
Use predefined stamp templates to annotate faxes within text, such as date received
New Zetafax 2006 Management Feature Details
A key new management feature is the Junk Message Filter. This allows Network Administrators to automatically delete junk faxes (or fax spam), or to divert them to a specific folder, on a system-wide basis. Administrators can choose to delete or junk all future faxes from an identified fax number for a specific Zetafax user or for all users.
Users can also be more productive as they dont waste time deleting unwanted messages from their in-box.
A new Do Not Dial control allows Network Administrators to restrict dialing to specific numbers such as premium or international numbers. Restrictions can be made by number prefix, area code or DDI. Outbound call charges can be drastically reduced by placing control with the Administrator.
