Y Soft celebrates the demise of analogue fax

 YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax introduces simple, secure, and cost-effective digital faxing  

Y Soft Corporation, the leading enterprise workflow solutions provider, has announced YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax, an optional extension for YSoft SAFEQ that solves traditional fax issues by reducing costs, increasing uptime, and providing a better digital experience. YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax is offered with YSoft SAFEQ software suites and is embedded into a multifunction printer (MFP), making it ideal for simple fax workflows for small to medium-sized businesses.  

Traditionally, faxing has meant installing a dedicated analogue phone line for a fax machine or an MFP equipped with an expensive fax kit. By creating an extension for YSoft SAFEQ with a digital fax service, Y Soft can support a business’ faxing needs at a very low cost. YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax has no usage charges for up to 1,000 pages per MFP, per year with a one-time activation and installation charge. This Y Soft solution offers a compelling return on investment (ROI) for customers. A typical small office, with five MFPs could see up to US$12,000 in savings using YSoft Digital Fax by eliminating fax kits and analogue phone lines.   

Jim Wieser, product marketing director, Y Soft said, “No one wakes up in the morning thinking about fax. Most organisations don’t realise how much they spend or how complicated their existing fax processes are until it’s on paper in front of them. By offering SAFEQ Digital Fax as an extension to YSoft SAFEQ, Y Soft is delivering a simple, secure, and cost-effective solution for our partners and customers.”  

Mick Heys, vice president, Future of WorkSpace & Imaging, IDC, said “Fax is still a widely used technology with vendors reporting high volumes but, in many instances, companies only send or receive a few faxes per month. This is the market that Y Soft is targeting with the SAFEQ Digital Fax service which represents a novel approach for a format that was introduced in the sixties.” 

With SAFEQ Digital Fax service, traditional analogue lines or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony are no longer necessary, nor are embedded MFP fax kits. Fax reliability and tracking are increased while costs and fax-related help desk tickets are significantly reduced. The cloud-based digital experience improves productivity through fax statuses and incoming faxes by email. 

YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax is available as an extension to the YSoft SAFEQ Enterprise Suite or the YSoft SAFEQ Print Management Suite. Customers can contact a Y Soft regional sales manager, their certified Y Soft partner, or visit our website at for more details.
