Soft Solutions Inc. said that they’ll incorporate QuickTime support into the fax viewer module of the forthcoming
4-Sight Fax version 5.0, a major upgrade to the company’s fax solution for Macs and PCs. Support for QuickTime will enable the software to manage identical display of fax documents across multiple platforms, according to Soft Solutions.
The company is currently shipping 4-Sight Fax version 4.x, which already provides multiple platform support on the client end. The next major revision will feature a Java-based fax viewer module. QuickTime will do more than just provide a consistent and reliable way of viewing faxes, according to Soft Solutions. The technology will also enable 4-Sight Fax version 5.0 users to transfer the fax files across multiple formats.
