Optika’s Acorde Software Supports Brooktrout’s Intelligent Fax Boards

2/12/2004 - Brooktrout Technology, the worldwide market leader of intelligent fax boards, announced that it has partnered with Optika Inc. to provide support for Brooktrout’s fax boards on Optika’s AcordeTM family of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software solutions. Optika’s Acorde product family allows companies to improve efficiency, reduce costs and increase responsiveness for critical business applications including accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources, time and expense reporting, and compliance.

Acorde allows users to capture, store, access and direct the flow of documents and data supporting everyday business processes. As part of this solution, Optika now supports Brooktrout’s TR114TM intelligent fax boards, which offer the advanced fax processing and performance required by enterprise fax applications. The TR114 is compatible with servers supporting the PCI 2.2 standard (uPCI), which means that Brooktrout’s popular fax boards can be installed in virtually any PC server available today.

As part of Brooktrout’s True Partner philosophy, Brooktrout's technical experts worked as an extension of Optika’s development team to help them integrate the TR114 with the Acorde solution. Working to Optika’s specifications, Brooktrout developed the code necessary for the integration. This allowed Optika’s technical staff to focus their efforts on their own application development, rather than on the port, which happened in the background and helped Optika get to market faster with a Brooktrout-supported solution. After the integration was completed, Brooktrout delivered the finished, tested code to Optika and provided the necessary onsite training to allow them to take over management of the code as part of their standard product line.

"Our customers needed an advanced fax board that could not only provide high performance and reliability, but that would also support the latest uPCI standard," said Randy Weakly, vice president of research and development for Optika. "Brooktrout worked very closely with us from start to finish to provide a seamless integration between the products, and delivered the necessary training and support for our technical staff."

Brooktrout Technology offers the broadest range of intelligent fax board choices for low to high density fax capabilities for a variety of computer-based fax applications, such as network fax, fax broadcast, unified messaging, and business process automation. Brooktrout offers more than 80 different fax board configurations, scalable from 1 to 30 channels, with BRI, Analog, T1/E1 PRI and DID interfaces, approved for use in 25 countries.

In addition to its advanced technology, Brooktrout also offers a unique Partner Access Network ProgramTM, a comprehensive, worldwide program providing many distinct benefits to OEM developers, technology partners, resellers, and ISVs. The program is designed to help Brooktrout partners develop new applications and services, expand into new markets and, ultimately, grow their businesses.
