Fax API Integration
Ready-to-go Fax Integration Utilities
Concord provides a number of options to allow developers and system integrators to fax-enable their applications.
In addition to ready-to-go integration tools such as Concord FaxAssist and Concord FolderFax, Concord provides an industry leading set of Fax APIs that allow simple, yet extremely comprehensive fax integrations for any possible deployment requirements.
Concord's Web Service Fax APIs cover three main areas:
- Outbound fax delivery
- Inbound fax delivery (receiving faxes)
- Account management
All of Concord's Fax APIs are designed to make full use of Concord's geographically dispersed high-availability fax network allowing developers to build fax integrations that meet the most stringent business continuity and disaster recovery requirements.
Outbound Fax Delivery Web Services
Concord supports an extensive list of optional features covering anything from billing code, custom cover pages to behavior control for individual fax requests.
While Concord's Fax API provides the option to check for fax status through a simple query, developers can also choose to have Concord post status to a developer specified URL (push notifications) or specify an e-mail address to deliver a status notification.
Inbound Fax Reception Web Services
Concord's Inbound Fax Web Services also provide a number of options for the transmission of received faxes to a customer application.
Developers have the option to have Concord's Web Services automatically post received faxes to a URL provided by the account holder or retrieve faxes on demand using web services function calls.
Received faxes are continuously synchronized between Concord data centers, so faxes are always available regardless of which data center received and processed the actual fax call, ensuring exceptional uptime and high availability.
Account Management Web Service
In addition to Web Services functions for sending and receiving faxes, Concord also provides a comprehensive API to manage users, departments, and default behaviors, such as enforced custom cover pages, etc.
The Account Management Web Services allow developers to dynamically create new accounts, request and assign fax numbers and manage all common attributes of a Concord Fax Online account.
The API further allows access to detailed transaction history information, reporting data and billing information for simple integration of activity history information and billing data into external systems.
Easy Fax API Implementation
To enable developers to get going and testing immediately, Concord provides ready to use well documented sample code for commonly used development environments.
Optional development is available through Concord's Developer Support Program.
Strict Version Control
Concord's entire enterprise focused fax solution is designed for unmatched robustness and high-availability.
Concord employs strict version control for its Fax API offerings and any new feature releases are deployed in a new version without affecting previous releases so customers can rely on their existing implementations to stay operational.
The expert team of developers and architects at Concord would be pleased to spend some time with you reviewing your custom fax API integration needs and providing high-level guidance and advice based on their massive library of experiences and a best-practice framework.
Further hands-on support and assistance with development or detailed architecture analysis is available through the Concord Professional Services team.
