Organizations can save tens of thousands of dollars a year with XMediusFAX®.

Facilitates Seamless Interoperability and Cost-Optimized Application Integration

XMediusFAX® drives business process costs down by seamlessly interoperating with VoIP gateways, IPBXs, voicemail systems (UM/UC applications including Microsoft Exchange 2013), LDAP directories, ECM/ERP applications including Microsoft SharePoint, and MFDs.


Flexible Architecture
