We bought it such a long time ago that we just pay upgrade fees for licensing, and they are pretty inexpensive. I usually do it in three-year shots because that gives us some savings. It's in a good price range.

The price is okay. Other products are more expensive.

It is worth its price. If you take a three year license, it will save you a little money. However, some people say, "Fax is dead." I recommend not to overbook it. While we had a need to add more licenses than we had before, it depends on the company's need. We have added some new licenses this year. We are only using 75 licenses. At our location, we have about 50 employees.

The pricing is okay. It's normal, modern IT pricing. It's not not that cheap. You can't buy the licenses anymore, it's subscription-based, but that's how everybody does it.

There are a gazillion fax applications. We installed this solution, and it works. I don't think we did a big market research until we bought the license again. For three years, it is about 1,000 euros. It is not dirt cheap, but the price is not bad. When our three years of license were up, we bought another three years. The fate of FaxMaker will be that it will stay until the fax gateway dies out, then it won't be replaced anymore. That may be in three to five years from now.

We use it for backwards compatibility with some of our clients who don't necessarily use email much. We still work with some very small companies that are fax-based.

We use it for receiving from our fax gateway and dropping faxes into our email service. We are a sales company with many customers who work directly at workbenches and workshops. Therefore, we still receive a lot of orders from fax. It's declining, but we still do. We have a fax gateway, which is hooked up to the GFI software, and it simply gets the faxes and drops them into the FaxMaker. FaxMaker puts them in a folder where our document management system picks them up. It also makes sure that everything works and sends them out in an email. We are using the latest version.
