Licensing GFI FaxMaker As Fast As Possible

Licensing GFI FaxMaker As Fast As Possible

GFI FaxMaker 2015 is leading fax server solution. FaxMaker is available as a total on-premise application, or hybrid application with hosted hardware. Easy to deploy, and fast on return on investment, GFI FaxMaker saves time and money.

GFI FaxMaker 2015 licensing can appear to be a bit difficult to understand so I hope I can make it as simple as possible to understand. GFI FaxMaker 2015 is licensed by the number of users, the number of fax channels (fax lines) , and options such as the OCR module and or virtual fax hardware such as the SR140. Licenses are also available for additional servers as well.

FrugalBrothers Software, Inc. featured in GFI Software Case Study

Recently I had the opportunity to participate in a GFI case study for the popular GFI FaxMaker software. Last Tuesday March 10th 2015, a video production company visited me in my home office to record the case study. They carried with them a ton of lighting and state of the art video gear.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term “case study” here is the best way to explain it. A case study is an examination of how a customer uses a product, and how the product benefits their business, and or improves their business processes.

Keeping Customer Credit Card Data Safe With PCI-DSS

What is PCI-DSS? It stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. PCI-DSS applies to all business that accepts credit card information, stores credit card information , or any information about the cardholder. Yes, even Mom and Pop operations fall under PCI-DSS regulations.

What is good to know that there are 4 different levels that can apply to you. Almost everyone stats off at level 4 if you process less than 20,000 transactions per year. The more transactions your company does, the higher your level will rise. At bare minimum as a level 4 merchant or company, you must complete a Self Assessment Questionnaire, and may have to pass a can of your network by a A.S.V. (Approved Scanning Vendor)

Does your bandwidth belong to autoplay videos and ads?

AutoplayBandwidth_SQWith Facebook’s recent announcement that they will allow video ads to automatically play in your news feed, three things are clear. The first is that the entire Internet just took an enormous step backwards into the 1990s (think GeoCities and webpages with music). The second is that most of us will either surf with our speakers turned off, or at least keep our fingers poised over the mute button. And the third is that bandwidth consumption is going to climb, no, skyrocket as more and more sites follow suit.

Since advertising seems to be the only reliable way to make money on the Internet, we should have seen this coming, but I for stopped going to CNN when they started playing their news videos automatically and and at full volume; so this is a trend that bothers me. And when you pay for bandwidth consumption because you are on a metered connection or mobile device, it’s not just the websites that are going to make money from advertising! But what can you do about it? Quite a bit, actually!
