Quillix Fax and Captaris Work Together
Quillix Fax automatically captures faxed documents received by the Captaris (formerly RightFAX) server and sends
them via the Internet to the Quillix Server for release to any back-end enterprise system for archiving or further
Quillix Fax for Captaris works by monitoring Captaris mailboxes within the fax server for inbound fax jobs. When a new
fax job arrives in a monitored mailbox, the fax images and other information, which can include DID (Direct Inward Dial)
number, originating fax machine phone number (ANI) and/or cover page, are handed off to the Quillix Fax input module and
acquired via FTP by the Quillix Server for processing.
One of Quillix' powerful features is the ability for the Quillix Server to dynamically assign a profile to an inbound fax
job based on its fax DID. A profile applies customized behaviors to the batch of images and information. Also, the Quillix
Server can automatically map DID, ANI, fax ID information directly to the index fields of the enterprise system receiving
the batch of faxed documents.
Once the Quillix Server receives and processes the fax batches, they are released to a workflow, document imaging, data
repository, or other enterprise system by the appropriate Quillix Server eXtension release module.
The Quillix Server software resides on a computer running Windows Server 2003 or greater, and operates as an NT service. The
Quillix Server can run on the same physical computer as the Captaris server, but a dedicated machine is recommended for the
Quillix Server if fax volumes exceed more than 250 faxes per day.
