Postscript, PCL, BMP, TIFF and PCX format files are automatically recognised. Fax2Send supports faxshots and timed transmissions and automatically batches outbound faxes to the same number. Fax2Send offers support for multiple lines for volume faxing and modems may be directly connected or located anywhere on the network. Least cost routing enables reduction of transmission costs on Wide Area Networks. Extensive logging is provided to enable management reports and statistical analysis to be provided.
