Callware Announces Support for Brooktrout's Tr114 Series Multichannel Fax Boards

Callware Technologies, Inc. today announced that CallegraFAX now includes support for Brooktrout’s (Nasdaq: BRKT) TR114(TM) Series Universal Port(TM) fax boards. Using Brooktrout’s TR114 Series, CallegraFAX can offer greater reliability and handle high volume faxing. The integration of Callegra and CallegraFAX delivers unique fax functionality that is not provided by any other stand-alone LAN-based fax server, including telephone and web access to fax messages and powerful fax-on-demand capabilities.

CallegraFAX combines the power of unified messaging and computer-based fax technology into one easy-to-use system that provides virtually unlimited fax capabilities. Natively written for Windows NT Workstation and Server platforms, CallegraFAX is the most flexible, robust fax solution for both fax server capabilities, telephone access and production fax-on-demand requirements. As an integrated component of Callegra for Windows NT, CallegraFAX unifies fax messages with Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT and Web clients.

“Brooktrout’s line of fax boards are regarded as one of the most advanced and reliable solutions for corporate fax applications,” commented Erik Hughes, director product management for Callware Technologies Inc. “With our new offering, customers of both Callware and Brooktrout will be able to take advantage of both Brooktrout and CallegraFAX’s advanced functionality that combines the benefit of both LAN-based and telephony-based fax services.”
