Star2Star’s StarFax™ Personal application adds reliable, cloud-based faxing to your Star2Star 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.
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 Adobe 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 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 each Starlet.
StarFax™ Personal is easy to install. It operates on Windows XP (and later) and on 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™ Mobile is a smartphone application that allows StarFax™ Personal users to send and receive faxes on their mobile device. StarFax™ Mobile will send faxes to or receive faxes from a StarFax™ Personal account or to a fax machine, all from an easy-to-navigate mobile interface. StarFax™ Mobile enables StarFax™ Personal users to quickly connect and transmit critical documents even if they cannot access computer or fax machine. StarFax™ Mobile is available on both iOS and Android devices.
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 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 data center. 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, allowing you to 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.
