The RightFax 16.2 feature pack is set to release in April of 2017. This update comes less than a year later from the 10.6 edition that was released this past June. The updates will bring greater control and efficiency of analytics, business processes, compliance, customer experience and reach.
Why RightFax 16.2? OpenText has an entire suite of products ranging from document management to analytics to electronic data interchange (ED). Their current release of their product line is Release 16. With the next version of RightFax, OpenText is integrating RightFax into their product suite number scheme. The .2 is the 2nd release of Release 16. You can think of what RightFax 11 would have been.
We anticipate the next release will be available in April 2017.
What can you expect in the RightFax 16.2 upgrade? Here are some of the more notable features that are anticipated. Keep in mind that features could be added or delayed since they are working on these new features daily. We can say that The Fax Guys are proud to be on the RightFax 16.2 Beta Team and we are seeing their weekly builds.
