Almost every fax machine in the world is connected to an analog telephone line, or an analog output of a telephone exchange (PBX). When the choice for a Fax Server is made, the Fax Servers Quarto and Octo are a logical choice because both models are connected to the analog lines that are already in use.
After installation, you really experience the difference between a Fax server and an old-fashioned fax machine. Paper, maintenance, and toner are no longer needed.
What is actually even more interesting; faxes can be sent from any PC, incoming faxes are automatically forwarded to the correct e-mail address and all sent and received faxes are stored in an extensive database. Like all Vidicode Fax Servers, the Fax Server Octo | Quarto comes with an unlimited software license, it does not matter whether 10 or 100 people use the Fax Server. So, …. no hidden costs afterward.
