Rendering Software

With the "rendering", the files and file attachments that are sent to ixi-UMS Business from the workstations, are converted into a fax-capable format by ixi-UMS Business.


This procedure allows the user to send faxes from the workstation out of formats like e.g. Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or also PDF-files by attaching the files to a message like with an e-mail.

Moreover, particular formatting (e.g. font, font size) of the text in the e-mail body can be depicted on the fax coverpage.


In order to be able to render a doc-file, for example, the respective application must be installed on the ixi-UMS Business machine installed and set up under the installation-account.

To setup the application login with the installation account (of ixi-UMS Business), open all application you require. All messages and profile settings must be confirmed in such a way that they do not appear again when reopening.
