TELUS Launches National Internet Fax Service using Protus IP Solutions Technology

Vancouver, BC - TELUS today launched a new version of Internet Fax, an Internet-based fax service that lets users send and receive fax messages as attachments using their existing e-mail accounts. The easy-to-use Internet Fax service communicates with traditional fax machines, and is available to TELUS business clients across Canada.

"Internet Fax is another useful tool TELUS is able to offer our business customers to help increase their business efficiencies, while reducing their costs," said Robert Tasker, vice president of product marketing, TELUS Business Solutions. "With the mobile workforce continuing to grow, Internet Fax provides our customers with another flexible way of communicating when on the road, while increasing the privacy of their faxes."

Internet Fax serves as a convenient, secure faxing solution for customers to enhance their communications. Businesses can send, receive, store or forward faxes securely without fax machines, fax / phone lines, long distance phone charges or fax modems. Customers of Internet Fax can access their fax communications from anywhere, at any time, the same way they access their e-mail.

Internet Fax allows users to manage faxes as standard attachments (i.e. PDF or TIFF formats) through existing e-mail accounts and the Web, eliminating the need for paper, and the hassle, expense and on-going maintenance of a fax machine. The service requires no additional hardware or software and is designed to be simple to use and secure.

Traditional fax machines can pose privacy and security threats, since communications can sit idly on shared fax machines. With e-mail and Web-based faxing, incoming faxes are sent directly to the intended recipient, ensuring confidentiality and helping organizations comply with privacy regulations.

Protus IP Solutions, a high-growth application service provider that offers Internet-based messaging solutions to businesses around the world, is providing the underlying technology and operations.

"Partnerships are a fundamental element of Protus' growth strategy and we are thrilled to have been selected by TELUS to provide the backbone of their service," says Bill Parisi, vice president business development, Protus IP Solutions. "Our agreement with TELUS demonstrates the strength of our technology and underscores the demand for Internet-based faxing service in Canada. The combination of Protus technology and operations and TELUS' reach brings businesses a powerful new solution to their communications needs."
