Receive Faxes on Demand

Where would you like to receive your fax? Callisto offers you a wide range of options to receive and view a fax, wherever you are, whenever you want:

  • through Callisto web interface
  • through the separate Callisto Gadget “Messages”
  • through your usual email client
  • using the Callisto message tab for Cisco Jabber
  • using the Callisto message pane in the Callisto operator solution COC
  • using an additional SW component automatically to MFP/printer

on any PC, smartphone, tablet, or printer.


Smart Reception Information

Callisto Fax informs you about the receipt of a fax message on…

  • a Cisco phone through MWI and, if supported by the phone, with an XML message on the display – this also applies to faxes via email if the email client allows the display of graphics by default.
  • sticker notification in the Callisto web interface, in the Callisto messages tab, or in the Callisto messages panel
  • SMS notification to your smartphone

Secure in Sending, Receiving and Storing

Callisto Fax is used by a large number of customers with high fax volumes and high requirements (e.g., bank orders). To give an idea, the fax transmission of a sent fax is confirmed via Callisto web interface and, if needed, also via e-mail. In the Callisto web interface or in the Callisto fax printer driver dispatch, the transmission is even displayed in real-time.

Received faxes are securely stored in the Callisto database and are part of the Callisto backup.

The simple search or the specific saving or storing of a fax is supported by all clients.

In addition to that, the intelligent Callisto authorization concept allows you to block unauthorized fax box users to send faxes.
