IT Services: RightFax

RightFax is an electronic fax solution that eliminates the need for traditional fax machines. With RightFax, users log in to a secure web site with their AD credentials to send outbound faxes while inbound faxes are received through a single department email address.  The transition to RightFax on campus has already begun.

Transitioning to RightFax is not mandatory as you may choose to keep your traditional fax machine.  However, if the adapter for your fax machine stops functioning, purchasing a replacement adapter will be the responsibility of your department.  Currently, replacements cost around $240.
