Retarus and Lexmark sales partnership going global
Increasing demand for digital fax solutions for MFPs as a result of “Faxploit” and “All IP”
Comprehensive fax data security
“At Lexmark, we consider security to be our top priority. With Retarus’ solutions, we take fax security one step further, enhancing our already comprehensive data protection solutions for sending and receiving faxes,” explains Tim Speller, Director Global Alliances at Lexmark in Lexington. “Since we started our EMEA cooperation in 2017, we have come to appreciate Retarus as a reliable and specialized partner, who, as a quality leader, also fits in perfectly with our global strategy. Going global with Retarus was therefore a logical step. In addition, our customers benefit from Retarus’ expertise in digital workflow optimization.”
Digital fax functionality for workflow optimization
Another important reason for the expansion of the partnership is the growing demand for digital fax solutions for MFPs, even more so since telecommunications providers have largely converted their networks to digital switching technology (“All IP”). Faxes can not only be received and printed directly using the respective MFP with digital fax functionality but are also automatically available in a digital format. Hence, companies no longer need to choose between required paper documents and the digitalization of their core business processes, but will benefit from analogue and digital processing taking place simultaneously.
Ensuring that high performing fax operations are up and running
In addition, the combination of Lexmark MFPs and Retarus Cloud Fax Services also addresses another issue: From a technical point of view, fax data transmission always takes place in individual packages. However, fax machines are sensitive to packet losses, potentially causing them to lose the connection. As a result of the comprehensive digital fax functionality provided by Lexmark MFPs and Retarus, such potential disruptions are eliminated before they can occur in digital networks, ensuring a very high fax delivery rate.
