Office 365 promises several benefits, such as increased workforce productivity,
simplified IT management, reduced operations costs, and increased ability to focus on core competencies. However, when it comes to your investment in your on-premises RightFax, these benefits are best realized when your RightFax fax server is integrated with your Office 365 so that critical business processes operate with equal or higher efficiency. Tightly integrating Rightfax and Office 365, i.e. on-premise fax workloads with Microsoft cloud-based solutions enables you to securely maximize your current technology investments with minimal change in workflow. You can deploy and scale at your own pace and gain the benefits in a way that works for your business.
In this blog, I want to talk about integrating your OpenText RightFax fax solution and Microsoft Office 365 to realize their full potential. A RightFax server at the customer site monitors a mailbox on Office 365 mail servers for outbound emails through a direct, secured POP3 connection (TLS/SSL), convert them to faxes, and sends them to their final fax destination. Inbound faxes and notifications for inbound/outbound faxes are routed over direct, secured SMTP connection (TLS/SSL) to Office 365 users via the email address configured for their user account on the fax server.
Office 365 is a line of subscription services offered by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Office product line. The brand encompasses plans that allow the use of the Microsoft Office software suite over the life of the subscription, as well as cloud-based software as a service product for business environments, such as hosted Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, Teams and SharePoint, among others. Companies adopting cloud-based technologies to reduce IT costs and improve business workflows must ensure there is seamless integration with existing business-critical applications. They must also ensure that communications over the Internet are secure and reliable and that technology modifications introduce a minimal learning curve for end-users. Rightfax and Office 365 integration is secure and provides ease of use and simple configuration. Users can send and receive faxes directly through Microsoft Office 365 accounts using Microsoft Outlook contact lists or simple fax address forms.
