IXD Announces Information Exchange Product Survey

August 2016 - IXD, an information exchange solution provider, is now conducting a product survey to gather feedback about fax and information exchange needs.

If you are a fax server or service administrator, a user, reseller, or provider - then you are invited to participate.

The fax server/service market is changing, but IXD has an approach worth noting as part of their vision embodies a "fax displacement" concept. They offer products such as secure email, secure email gateways, and high speed routing - all of which could extend current fax investments.

Here's IXD's statement about their survey and a link.

IXD is a secure information exchange provider that connects fax servers, secure mail, and enterprise applications to allow for the high-speed, secure transfer of any information between users. They are conducting a survey to assist with developing new products for the fax server and fax services market and they would like feedback from fax administrators, sponsors and users as well as fax server and fax service providers and resellers. 

The survey should take less than five minutes. 

You can access the survey at   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IXDsurvey.

XMediusFAX has a new look

June 08, 2016 - Fax Over Cloud recently made contact with the makers of XMediusFAX® from Montreal Canada -- and we're happy for it. This is a company with a new lease on life.

Splitting away from French parent company Sagemcom in December of 2015, the new company XMedius Solutions, Inc. was formed. Los Angeles-based private investment firm, StoneCalibre and some members of their Executive team now have shared ownership.

XMediusFAX® is by no means a new product line either. Serving the market since 1996, research analysts continually placed the XMedius product line close to the top of the enterprise fax leader board. Competitors like Biscom, Esker and market-leading RightFax always took notice and still do.

Under this new company, they’re spearheading their expansion in the marketplace with two proven and well established fax products:  XMediusFAX® On Premises and XMediusFAX® Cloud.  And, they’ve undergone an attractive re-marketing effort complete with a new look to their web site, brand identity and their communication. It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s honed in and -- their message is on point.

XMedius vs. RightFax?  For years it seemed that XMediusFAX often faced-off with RightFax in the open market. Analyst reports confirmed many times their position in the market place as either #1 or #2 depending on the fax category surveyed. Today, feedback “from the street” will claim that the Open Text RightFax® business model is undergoing change, and some would even posit that it leaves a gap for players like XMedius to exploit. No doubt they -- and a small handful of others will do whatever it takes to chip away at the envious RightFax base. As proof, XMedius wasted no time in signing a business partnership with former top RightFax VAR Instant InfoSystems. And, in speaking with former RightFax evangelists who now are in XMedius’ employ, there’s much excitement with this “new” yet veteran fax organization.

New branding, a focused marketing plan, an innovative secure document exchange solution to be launched in September, and a new financial backing from a reputable investment firm. Watch out for XMedius in 2016 and beyond. Their new lease on life and momentum is refreshing to observe.

Biscom partners with etherFAX

Our friends at Biscom keep making the headlines with more news and innovation by signing a partnership deal with etherFAX.

This is a great idea even if there may be some perceived overlap with Biscom's hybrid solution. I've spoken to Bill Ho, Biscom CEO, a few times about this and I'm confident this is the right move for them. It gives Biscom's customers more choices, provides them an avenue into etherFAXs "Fax to Direct" ecosystem, and places them into the the Fax Federation. And, with etherFAX's "Secure Exchange Network (SEN)" -- it gives their secure file transfer strategy another angle to exploit.

Congratulations to Biscom and etherFAX!
