Its a Fax, Brooktrout Dominates Intelligent Board Market

2/26/2003 - Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading supplier of products and core technologies used in the development of applications, services and systems for the New NetworkTM, announced that it continues its commanding lead in the intelligent fax board market holding a 73.5% market share, according to the latest Davidson Consulting research report “Computer-Based Fax Markets, 2003” published this month by Davidson Consulting. The closest competitor holds only a 12.7% market share. Brooktrout was also recognized as the overall fax market leader in Europe, according to the report.

“Intelligent fax board vendors have all but boiled down to one. Brooktrout dominates this market, virtually to the exclusion of all others,” said Peter Davidson, president of Davidson Consulting (, author of the report).

Brooktrout offers a broad range of fax board choices for low to high density applications, and a wide breadth of award-winning fax products including its Trufax®, TR114TM and its latest generation intelligent fax board, the TR1034TM.

“One of the reasons that Brooktrout remains a solid leader in the fax market is because we offer the most advanced and comprehensive fax product offering on the market. In addition, we provide scalable hardware platforms with both analog and digital interfaces from 1 to 60 ports per board, providing our partners a variety of platforms for all their development needs,” says Frank Potocnik, senior market development manager for Brooktrout’s fax products. “In addition, our fax products are approved 25 countries and are compatible with more than 40 of the leading fax ISV applications.”

Brooktrout has been leading the industry in fax technology for more than a decade. Brooktrout was the first company to introduce multi-channel fax boards, the first to combine fax and voice processing on a single board, and the first to provide fax application development tools under UNIX and Windows NT. Brooktrout holds U.S. patents on fax-on-demand document retrieval and the use of direct inward dialing (DID) telephone service with fax message systems, and in the last five years has received more than a dozen industry and technology awards for its intelligent fax products.
