About the Company:
Since 1989, privately owned Copia International has been one of the leading innovators in the fax server and fax-on-demand software market. Copia now offers CopiaFacts™, a suite of preferred communications solutions comprised of FaxFacts®, VoiceFacts™, and E-MailFacts™, cover the fax, voice and e-mail marketplace. Copia holds patents for its one-call fax retrieval and mail merge to fax technology. Everyday thousands of customers worldwide use Copia’s FaxFacts® software to send and receive information by fax, VoiceFacts™ to provide custom IVR systems to interact with callers and E-MailFacts to notify and distribute information to customers via e-mail.
Founded in March of 1987, Copia began as a provider of programming tools for the database software market. Copia’s AccSys products provided libraries of database functions for C programmers. The libraries grew to incorporate support for a number of PC databases, operating systems and languages. Microsoft and Lotus both integrated AccSys into their database products to provide external database support. During the normal course of business, faxing became Copia’s primary means of getting information to customers. Copia decided to automate this process by developing fax-on-demand software.
Copia has since shifted its focus to end-user fax, voice and e-mail solutions. It has formed strategic alliances with large service bureaus to deliver fax-on-demand, fax, e-mail and voice broadcasting, and web solutions to their customers. Copia also has a large network of resellers in the United States, Europe, and Asia that provide additional software, training, and installation for Copia’s complete product line.
Fax Service bureaus and large organizations worldwide continue to praise FaxFacts for its ability to generate high volumes of personalized faxes at the rate of 600 pages per minute. Many customer run thousands of lines of Copia’s fax software to provide outsource faxing solutions for their client base. Several installations are capable of sending millions of faxes per hour. Copia also scales this same powerful software down to the SMB/SME customer, providing a robust scalable platform at an affordable price. Copia also applies this same technology to e-mail broadcasting with E-MailFacts™, where a typical T1 connection can send 60,000 to 100,000 e-mail’s per hour, with some installations sending millions of e-mails per hour.
Copia’s European customers are served by Copia UK located in Wiltshire, England. Formerly known as Roundhill Computer Systems, Copia UK also helped develop much of the CopiaFacts™software. The two companies work closely to market, develop and support the CopiaFacts™ suite of products.
Copia is committed to delivering the most comprehensive, most capable communications software solutions on the market at affordable prices.
