stratafax® Production Services (SPS) is a cloud-based production fax solution powered by etherFAX designed to meet the needs of large enterprises and government agencies. SPS provides highly scalable, secure production faxing capabilities by sending and receiving fax transmissions over a secure internet transport. SPS integrates with most enterprise and governmental applications (ERP, EHR, OnBase™, and more) and can be up and running in a matter of hours.
State and local governments are struggling to manage the high volume of business-critical data being processed as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Traditional telephony infrastructure with limited PSTN-based fax numbers simply cannot handle the increased number of documents, such as unemployment claims and requests for other social services, being transmitted each day.
Recently, a state unemployment department’s online system was overwhelmed when more than 72,000 people applied for unemployment insurance in one week. Operating with only two fax numbers, the department’s fax lines were constantly busy, making it difficult for thousands of people to receive unemployment benefits.
To streamline workflows and accelerate business-critical communications, etherFAX and Instant InfoSystems supported the department’s transition to the etherFAX network in the cloud by implementing stratafax Production Services.
Within a matter of hours, the department was able to scale up to an unlimited number of inbound fax channels, eliminating the busy signal bottleneck once and for all and automatically routing unemployment claims to the right person for processing.
stratafax Production Services, powered by etherFAX’s cloud-based secure document delivery platform, improves business continuity for statewide unemployment offices by managing peak overflow fax operations and eliminating busy signals associated with traditional telephony infrastructure.
With more than six million connected endpoints, the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN) is the world’s largest fax network, leveraging hybrid cloud technology to provide 100 percent secure communications. DirectFax™ via etherFAX SEN enables organizations to send and receive business-critical faxes and documents directly to applications and devices with ultra-fast transmission speeds, guaranteed delivery, and end-to-end encryption. etherFAX SEN also features built-in redundancy and eliminates the need for phone lines, fax boards, and servers.
Together with Instant InfoSystems and stratafax, etherFAX is redefining fax for the modern era and enabling government organizations to replace outdated, unreliable, and costly network fax systems with a solution that is digital and direct.
