The mobile operator fax problem is history
Barcelona, February 26, 2012: Mobile operators around the world have difficulties with clients who want to use their network for fax transmission. Fax is still important in many countries primarily due to low penetration of computers, use of non-latin characters and legal reasons. And elsewhere it is there as a backup, for specific legal reasons and for communication with countries where fax is frequently used. Regardless of the reasons, mobile operators are struggling with fax requests and in some cases they have to purchase PSTN subscriptions for their clients and in cases where PSTN isn’t a viable option, they lose business.
Possio invented the mobile fax machine some twenty years ago and are currently selling GRETA GSM Fax & Printer and SVEA GSM Connector to operators and endusers around the world. These solutions both use circuit switched data (CSD) on 2G. Possio have been working for years on their patent pending IP based mobile document management platform, Remote Scan & Print, as the successor to mobile fax.
Today Possio announce Possio Remote Scan & Print for Service Providers which is the first commercially available solution based on its RSP architecture, developed together with technology partner BD Consult.
“We have developed RSP for Service Providers in close cooperation with mobile operators in order to provide a robust scalable solution for their clients request for fax and all other types of remote document management needs”, says Rickardh Gärdström, CEO Possio. “Beyond straight forward fax applications over GPRS we are already working with a variety of applications like SIM card tracking, internal post solutions and bank note collection”, continues Mr Gärdström.
The RSP for Service Provider solution is a combination of an RSP Server and an RSP Connector. The RSP Server will be made available to service providers as a software license or a hosted service offering. The RSP Connectors will be available through Possio’s sales partners.
“Our RSP offering is a great platform for service providers to bring to market innovative, more or less, customized solutions to their customers”, says Magnus Melander, Chairman at Possio. “Imagine digitalizing a signed receipt without a computer in a remote location and have it sent, in a secure predefined fashion, straight into a workflow system at the HQ, without a single touch by human hands”, continues Mr Melander.
Possio Remote Scan & Print for Service Providers use a standard G3 fax machine as scanner and printer connected to an RSP Connector which utilizes GPRS over 2G or 3G for transmission of documents to and from the RSP Server. RSP supports customized receipts over different channels, encrypted communication, web interface for easy set up and maintenance of customers, users and services, meta data created at point of digitalization to enrich security and traceability, creation of billing data, APIs for integration to external systems and development of apps.
RSP customers can combine remote scan, remote print, fax, email, sms, mms and file transfer into services of choice. “With RSP we offer Mobile operators one single machinery for developing, operating and benefiting from document management services in their network”, concludes Rickardh Gärdström.
