Georgetown, Texas (PressExposure) September 12, 2006 -- Internetworking specialist Ringdale Inc. today (Monday September 12, 2006) announced the release of its new Fax Receiver Appliance MFR-200. Ringdale's MFR-200 Fax Receiver Appliance uniquely obsoletes incoming fax machines. In many organizations and industries a high proportion of fax machines are used to receive faxed orders or requests from customers.
Instead of having to maintain a whole PC with virus updates UPS and other support nightmares, Ringdale's MFR-200 Fax Receiver connects direcly to a phone line and to the Ethernet Network, converting incoming faxes directly into an email sending it to a mailbox of a mail server.
Ringdale's Fax Receiver Appliance reduces direct waste significantly and can produce an ROI of less than a year, based on approximately 20 spam faxes a day @ 0.07 cents per page for 365 days a year totals a direct saving of US$511 per device.
Indirect savings from personnel no longer staring at advertising in the fax machine could be even higher.
Faster communication as the document no longer needs to be collected from the machine but arrives immediately at the administrators email inbox. Email servers can be set up to copy more than one person, so emails may be picked up while on the move.
More secure, the Ringdale MFR-200 may be located in the Telephone or the Computer Room, away from everyday hazards or malice.
Each page is an attachment in the email that can be easily re-distributed or used for input into other applications.
Further saving come from the device's very low power consumption and high reliability as there are no moving parts to be maintained or paper to be supplied. On average only 20% of business communication in electronic format is actually printed out which brings further savings.
The appliance needs setting up only once and will run for a lifetime without maintenance. Parameters are stored permanently in Flash Memory and the power-up sequence is less than 10 seconds. Remote management via Telnet with login and password protection allows management in any networked environment such as WindowsÂ®, UnixÂ® or AppleÂ®.
