Stable solution that is easy to scale up and across users

What is our primary use case?

We are working with a customer in the SMS domain. This is for incoming and outgoing faxes. Therefore, our developer has developed an application that will automatically send a fax from the application via FaxMaker. It makes a copy to the phone system, which sends it out externally. It is also the same for our two customers. Though at the moment, only one of our customers works with it because the other customer is moving all their systems to the cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is not complex; it is clear and uncomplicated. If you can install software, then you can install FaxMaker."
  • "It is usable only with a local system. When everything is in the cloud, nobody uses it."

What other advice do I have?

The product is okay and working fine. Everything that we want to do with the product, we can do it. We also use GFI MailEssentials. It is possible to use rules within the solution to route incoming faxes based on the sender’s ID and phone number, but we don't use this feature. I would rate the product as an eight or nine (out of 10).
