Advanced Fax Features in SAP
SAP has several fax control features that RightFax also provides. Organizations may use the features of either or both systems. Features include:
- Fax Cover Sheets: Both SAP and RightFax can automatically generate fax cover sheets. With the RightFax Connector for SAP ERP, you can choose to use SAP coversheets or RightFax cover sheets. When using RightFax cover sheets, SAP passes all of the data (fax number, name, company, etc.) to RightFax.
- Batch Faxing: With RightFax, organizations can submit faxes to be grouped into a batch and sent later at a prescheduled time. Batch faxing can be useful for holding low priority faxes until after hours when more fax channels are free, or for sending faxes at off-peak hours to save long-distance telephone charges.
- Dialing Rules: Both SAP and RightFax allow configuration of special dialing rules that can modify outgoing fax numbers. Dialing rules send each fax via the lowest-cost route based on destination number, and add appropriate prefixes (such as "91" in the US). In SAP data, these are called "exception rules" and are configured for each node. RightFax, however, includes a much more comprehensive "pattern matching" dialing-rule scheme which is more flexible.
- SAPscript: The RightFax Connector for SAP ERP recognizes several special SAPscript codes that allow users to add fax control commands to their output forms. The SAPscript codes can include RightFax cover sheet information, attach RightFax library documents, specify delivery and notification instructions, and more.
