The eFax Connector for SAP Solutions was developed to address  a primary need within corporate environments: to allow customers to send recurring documents via fax without the need for an internal fax server.  Choosing an SAP-certified outsourced solution such as eFax eliminates the need for additional hardware, software, or upgrade costs normally associated with fax server technology.

Along with the convenience of an integrated SAP faxing solution, additional benefits of the eFax Connector API include:

  • Easier installation and administration over the previous RFC interface
  • The use of eFax through a standard SMTP gateway
  • Direct faxing from SAPconnect
  • Improved data tracking
  • Compatibility with IETF standards

"Bringing an outsourced, high-volume faxing application solution to ERP environments is something our customers have asked us for, and now with the eFax Connector for SAP Solutions we're delivering on that request," said Mike Pugh, vice president, marketing for j2 Global Communications, Inc.  "The SAP integration fits right in line with a key objective of our recently announced eFax Next initiative – to work with leading technology providers such as SAP, HP, and others to bring a shift in the way companies think about and use fax."
