Premiere Global’s Fax2Mail is the first internet fax product to include full Adobe PDF scanning capabilities, enabling users to insert electronic signatures in PDF files using free Adobe Reader® software to collaborate more efficiently in real-time with contracts, paperwork, purchase orders, invoices, legal documents, loan applications, and more.

In addition to these powerful new PDF capabilities, the new Fax2Mail also includes:

+ An Intuitive Web Interface that enables users to monitor outgoing and incoming faxes, send faxes immediately, schedule future fax delivery, store and retrieve fax recipient lists, and keep track of overall delivery success; and
+ An Outlook Toolbar plug-in that allows users to click on the “new fax” icon in the Outlook toolbar, attach a document, click on the recipient in an address book, and easily hit send.

“We are excited to be first-to-market with these significant enhancements that we believe make Fax2Mail the most robust and versatile internet fax product available today,” said David Guthrie, CTO, Premiere Global Services, Inc. “The ability to edit, sign, search, and store a PDF document is a powerful new tool for our customers who are looking to streamline their paper-based workflows.”
