Sfax API Integration for Critical Compliance Questions

Deploying a cloud fax integration is like having a production-class fax server in-house or in your application – but without the equipment, management hassle or expense. Cloud fax integration helps drive your compliance success by tapping you in to a network of worldwide, geographically redundant fax transport infrastructure. The Sfax RESTful API platform helps your organization comply with rules of federal regulations such as HIPAA, SOX and GLBA.


Getting Started with Sfax API Integration

Deeper integration of your fax applications with other parts of your organization’s operations can help speed the sharing of information. To get started with an API integration, sign up for an Sfax account and choose either the Contender or Enterprise plan, both of which provide access to the robust API.

From there, add and activate all the users that will be interacting with the API. Ensure you’ve generated API credentials for each of them.

Use the SendFax method call to send documents from your application to our server to be faxed, or the Receive Inbound Fax call to receive faxes into your application. See: Service Methods and Code Samples.

You'll be able to use our fax cover pages for sending, and you can also apply barcodes if you'd like.

Use the ReceiveOutboundFax method call to get information for all faxes that have 0completed since your last call, or configure Fax Callbacks to be alerted when a fax has been received or has completed sending. We can also read the barcodes on incoming faxes and provide you with that data.

Use the DownloadInboundFax or DownloadOutboundFax method calls to download fax documents in TIF or PDF format when/if needed. See: Service Methods and Code Samples.

Successfully navigating an integration requires having a technical expert or developer on staff who can walk you through the steps. Technical support and account management at Sfax are also available to help you explore any issues that may arise.
