New BlueSeries is a turnkey fax/Email solution for the iSeries-AS/400 that supports sending, receiving and printing of fax documents and sending of iSeries-AS/400 reports as Email. The fax and Email functions are all tied together into a single, integrated, easy to use package.
BlueSeries eXpress'it provides your iSeries-AS/400 installation with all of the fax and Email features you and your users may need. From faxing an individual spool file entry, to faxing documents to your customers, to Emailing report to your users, to supporting your PC client users with outbound fax services from their desktop environments .... BlueSeries eXpress'it has it all and includes both the BlueFax and BlueMail modules.
First, your users can send any iSeries-AS/400 print spool file as a fax using the BlueFax module. Any terminal user can send faxes individually or automatically to a predetermined location. With a few simple changes, your system applications can even create output directly to fax. You can send faxes on plain paper or you can merge the information from your spool file with a forms overlay to produce a fax document that looks just like your company forms. With this feature, you can send invoices, statements, purchase orders and more directly from your application programs.
Faxes can also be sent from attached PC's. BlueSeries eXpress'it supports full PC client fax server functions. This enables your PC users to send faxes directly from their favorite wordprocessing software, spreadsheet software, database software and more. Any Windows PC client can use the fax sever features.
BlueSeries eXpress'it is a turnkey fax product. No special hardware is needed for your system. The only prerequisite is a communications port, your ECS modem, a telephone line and a network connection to the Internet. All you need to do to start sending faxes or Email directly from your system is load the software, configure the modem and comm port to the system and plug in the phone line. Typical installation time is around 30 minutes.
BlueFax can send output from existing applications with little or no programming changes. The outbound fax capability is very fast and uses little system overhead. Support is included for adding logos and signatures to outbound faxes. Faxes can be sent to individual fax destinations or to a list of destinations in a distribution list.
In addition to sending faxes, BlueFax supports receiving, storing and printing faxes. To print faxes, an attached HP LaserJet PC printer (HP III or higher, or an equivalent printer) is required. The printer can be attached to a PC running Client Access/400 or to the printer port on a dual-session terminal. Faxes can also be viewed using the BlueFax Client Software.
The BlueMail module lets you send reports from your spool file as Email attachments. This module supports conversion to either TIF format files or Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files.
