Colorado-based FaxCore (News - Alert) added to its growing list of achievements earlier this year when it was honored with the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award by global media company TMC (News - Alert). The fax over IP server software vendor was recognized for its FaxCore 2010 application, which delivers fax traffic over enterprise IP networks of any size.
FaxCore may have to make some more room in its trophy case; the Fax over IP specialist has now taken home the award for five consecutive years.
“The FaxCore Application has led the market in innovative technology since its initial release in the early part of the 21st Century," noted Faxcore president Tom Linhard. "FaxCore was the first fax server built on a .NET (News - Alert) Framework and with .NET 4.0 we continue that legacy.”
"We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious award for the fifth year in a row," he added. "It is very rewarding to be recognized by TMC for our commitment to support new and innovative technologies and providing customers with the best fax server in the industry."
The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine bestowed the honor upon the FaxCore because its hallmark Fax over IP product continues to display quality and innovation, while adding significant value to the marketplace, Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), TMC's chief executive officer, noted in a release.
FaxCore and the rest of the 2010 Product of the Year winners were officially recognized in the February 2011 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, which has been the authority in the IP communications world since 1998.
The FaxCore team recently got back from Miami, where they showed off a number of their hardware products and cloud-based solutions at ITEXPO East 2011. TMC's own Juliana Kenny was able to catch up with Linhard on the showroom floor and ask him about the company's new hybrid solution that was developed in conjunction with etherFAX.
Dubbed "Partly Cloudy," the new offering is basically a fax board in the cloud. As Linhard explains, the hybrid product is designed for companies that want a low-cost solution that enables them to have control over their documents and integration with their systems.
"All of the fax resources, the expensive and complicated parts with telco, are outsourced," he told Kenny. "That's a way that we have offered faxing over the cloud to the enterprises that still needs to have control over their documents."
TMC also had the opportunity to sit down with Max Schroeder (News - Alert), Sr. VP of FaxCore, who talked a bit more generally about the Fax over IP market itself.
"There is one thing that people need to know: Fax over IP is great in today's world," he told TMC's Janice McDuffee. "In a company's infrastructure, in their network, it allows for converged communications, unified communications and [much more]."
