ERIS™ (ETHERFAX Remote Integration Service)

ERIS is a lightweight, containerized application that can easily replace many local fax server functions.

Why Use ERIS?

ERIS is a development tool that supports the processing of job files (via drop directory) and is an alternative to using a programming API typical with most fax servers. This service provides support for several off-the-shelf products like RightFax, GFI FaxMaker, email/SMTP, Epic web services, and many others.

Features & Benefits

  • Built-in SMTP mail server and relay functions are ideal for multi-function device (MFD) integrations and adding fax capabilities to your existing mail system
  • High availability, clustering, and load balancing for mission-critical environments
  • Print server functions allow legacy systems to easily print documents with embedded instructions
  • Enhance workflows and automation with file drop and third-party application tie-ins
  • Email-to-fax/fax-to-email — functionalities allow users to send an email with an attachment without the complicated set-up of a fax server desktop client

More Reasons to Switch

Fax servers and fax boards are complicated, as they require on-premise solutions that are bulky, expensive, hard to-maintain, have high overhead maintenance costs, and require detailed expertise to set-up, configure, and operate. ERIS is ideal for any organization utilizing an existing fax server for routing. ERIS requires no infrastructure, no heavy-lifting, and eliminates the complexity associated with traditional ‘rip-and-replace’ fax server applications.
