BELLEVUE, Wash. - Captaris, Inc., a leading provider of software

products that automate document-centric processes, today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc., a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for Gold membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.


The Avaya DevConnect program promotes development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies, helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and deliver true value to the bottom line.


Captaris specializes in document capture, recognition, routing, workflow and delivery. Captaris RightFax is the proven market leader in document delivery and fax software that enables companies to deliver business information from virtually any application via fax, email, print devices or over the Internet. For companies extending unified communication strategies with IP-based document delivery, RightFax for Fax over IP supports a direct connection to Voice over IP gateways or routers via the T.38 real-time Fax over IP standard. "RightFax for Fax over IP allows organizations to leverage the latest technology advancements for transmitting data with reliable and proven network-based fax management," said Paul Yantus, executive vice president of marketing and new product development for Captaris.


Companies using Avaya Unified Communications have experienced the benefits of moving to a VoIP infrastructure. Integrating Fax over IP further leverages IP investments and can eliminate or reduce analog and ISDN lines. "Membership in Avaya's developer community will help us deliver the compliance-tested, interoperable solutions customers need to realize cost-savings," Yantus noted. "Building on Avaya's resources, we are able to provide solutions in a manner that reduces network complexity, improves security and reliability and speeds time to deployment."

Through the DevConnect program, Avaya provides a number of tools and capabilities to member companies. One example is Application Enablement Services (AES) - a set of application programming interfaces, protocols and Web services that makes it easier for developers to create Avaya-compatible networks, devices and applications.
