Esker Launches Fax Services for SAP
April 3, 2007 Alex Woodie
Esker last week unveiled Esker Fax Services for SAP, a new on-demand offering designed to enable SAP ERP users to send faxes directly from their SAP screens, without buying any hardware or software.
With Esker Fax Services for SAP, users can fax directly from their Business Workplace workflow inbox, or set up automated production faxing from any SAP module. When a fax command is sent from Business Workflow or one of the modules, the documents are securely transmitted (over the Internet) to one of three Esker production facilities, where the faxes are actually sent. All fax activity is tracked by Esker and made available back to the SAP system.
Jean-Michel Berard, the CEO of Esker, expects Esker Fax Service for SAP to be well-received. “Esker is well known by SAP customers, thanks to our heritage of supporting this community with document automation and fax server solutions for well over a decade,” he says.
Esker already has a considerable on-demand business. The company processes more 2 million documents every month in its production facilities worldwide for more than 800 organizations. The SAP offering joins existing on-demand offerings providing fax processing for Lotus Notes, Microsoft Office, and its own DeliveryWare content management system.
