Eliminate Or Modernize Your Existing Fax Machine
StarFax Personal and StarFax Classic allow you to enhance your business fax capabilities, whether you want to go machine-less or use your existing fax machine.
Star2Star’s StarFax Personal application adds reliable, cloud-based faxing to your Star2Star Hybrid Cloud Communications system. StarFax Personal is a modern, environmentally-friendly way to incorporate fax into your business workflow without paper, ink, or power hungry fax machines, saving you space and money.
Receive Your Faxes Anytime, Anywhere
Each StarFax Personal user is assigned a unique, personal fax number for incoming faxes. When a fax is sent to that number, the Star2Star system receives the fax and stores it “in the cloud” at a Star2Star data center.
Incoming faxes are stored as PDF files. A list of received faxes is displayed in the StarFax Personal inbox.
StarFax Personal provides users with a better fax environment than a traditional fax machine. Incoming faxes are automatically scanned using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, so the contents of received faxes are fully searchable.
Received faxes can be viewed within the StarFax Starlet or with a PDF viewer. Users can view, forward, print, or download faxes to their computers.
StarFax Personal includes an organizer feature, so users can organize their faxes into folders. Since the faxes are stored in the cloud, all of a user’s faxes are available from any Internet-connected computer, anywhere.
Users can send virtually any type of printable file (doc, pdf, jpg, etc.) directly from the StarFax Personal software without printing a hard copy or using a traditional fax machine. If you can view it on your screen, you can send it with StarFax Personal. Laptop users can send and receive faxes anywhere Internet connectivity is available.
The software behind StarFax Personal is a comprehensive application framework that provides a platform for a family of Star2Star applications, called Starlets. The Star2Star Application Framework automatically installs updates as they are released, so all users are always running the most recent version of StarFax Personal.
StarFax Personal is easy to install. It operates on Windows XP (and later) and Intel-based Macs running any version of OS X. StarFax Personal uses the same user authentication credentials as your existing Star2Star system, so it doesn’t add any administrative overhead for your IT department.
StarFax Classic from Star2Star is an innovative way to send and receive faxes using your existing analog fax machine. StarFax Classic connects your fax machine to the Star2Star cloud unified communications network using a specially configured Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA).
The ATA device uses your existing Internet connection to communicate with a specialized faxing server in our datacenter. This arrangement allows Star2Star to route your fax traffic over the Internet just as we do for your voice phone calls. Your fax can have one or more assigned phone numbers, so you can send and receive faxes to and from any fax machine, anywhere.
Despite the low initial cost, StarFax Classic delivers high reliability with automatic failover—you’ll receive email delivery in the event of a device, power, or Internet failure.
