4-Sight FAX v7 ships
Soft Solutions has released 4-Sight FAX v7, a significant update to its signature fax server solution. Version 7 now runs natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, including the Xserve platform as well as provides support for all Macintosh internal modems, including all Apple internal modems, the lower-cost Apple USB modem and the MultiTech 5634ZBA-DID Router/Modem. It also provides direct client access to the Server address book: authorized client users now have the ability to add, edit, and delete address book entries located on the server. The software also improves import speed for the client address book, allowing users to import 10,000-plus entries in seconds (previously took "minutes"), while individual fax client users also gain the ability to customize their own fax printing options.
The 4-Sight FAX Version 7 upgrade also includes a new suite of archive and search tools, offering quick access to a company's entire fax history (PDF/TIFF) with individual fax archive queues and a search tool that provides convenient date-range access to the fax history.
The "Universal" server application is available now, while Universal Binary support for the 4-Sight FAX Client software is currently in beta and is planned for release later in October. Full release of the FaxPack cross-platform plug-in family for 4D and FileMaker Pro are also planned for release later this month, the company said. In addition, version 7 will support the upcoming Macintosh Leopard (OS X 10.5) within 30 days of its public release. The 4-Sight FAX Version 7 program ships in English, French and German. Pricing starts at $500 for a single-line and five users.
