Q: What is FaxSIPit?
A: FaxSIPit is an integration you can use from Marketplace to send and receive faxes within Zoom. It is also supporting other fax clients like “email to fax” “fax to email” and is able to support physical fax machines. The solution is a complaint for HIPAA PCI-DSS FISMA etc.
Q: Why are we reselling FaxSIPit?
A: Larger customers prefer to buy solutions for common use cases such as contact centers and UCaas as opposed to buying multiple software products from multiple vendors and then figure out how to make them all work together. Building the ability to resell third party solutions on Zoom’s quoting systems will help solve this problem. The partnership with FaxSIPit for the past 4 years proved that the solution meets the highest market requirements and selling it under our brand will strengthen the sales process

THowever, some of the services we provide are from Consensus so are branded eFax.

A: Yes, each account including ATA has the ability to function as a Virtual Fax
Q: If they sign up for ATA-Fax, will they see this device on the Zoom Portal or a link to manage it?
A: If we can put a link it will be great. This is for the customer Admin level. Users don’t manage their ATAs. Currently there is no HW management on the Zoom portal for FaxSIPit. Note If a user assigned to the ATA with an actual email address – they can use the zoom app but the App would not show any outgoing or incoming faxes. Those faxes can be just seen on the web service account & report

Q: Is there a supported FAX list for ATA-FAX or compatibility settings guide the FaxSIPIt team can provide as basic troubleshooting for Zoom Support?
A: Virtually all Fax machines and MFP devices are supported. To date we have only seen a few that required special settings. Typically it’s things like setting the Fax BAUD rate to 14,400 or auto-negotiate. A link to download the Troubleshooting Guide is below these questions.
Q: Will there be a way to coordinate immediate support assistance for customers having issues with FaxSIPit during their cut-over date?
