MyFax Internet Fax Services Introduced to Business Travelers

MyFax Internet Fax Services Introduced to Business Travelers










Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) February 13, 2006

Wireless Logix GroupTM and Protus IP Solutions announce the integration of MyFax into the BizCenter™ Logix business center solution located in hotel lobbies, airport club lounges and Multi-Dwelling-Units throughout the United States. MyFax, an internet-based fax service offered by Protus, allows busy business travelers to send and receive faxes using existing email accounts or the web. It also enables users to better manage their fax communication – reduces paper usage and allows faxes to be scheduled at a preset date, all at a lower cost than traditional fax servers or fax machines, regardless of physical location.

”Mobile workers expect information immediately and demand that voice and data keep pace with their business requirements and hectic schedules,” says Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP Solutions. “Partnering with Wireless Logix to bring our MyFax service to business people in transit answers a huge demand for mobility, accessibility and the capability to transmit paperless documents as needed.”

Faxing is a critical component to many business transactions where sales orders, purchase agreements, contracts and other documents are time sensitive. With Internet based faxing capability, faxes can easily be forwarded, saved and stored digitally, allowing for smarter document management. Email to fax virtually eliminates lost pages, allows for immediate electronic document storage and ensures delivery of the document to the right hands. A key benefit MyFax offers Internet fax users in a public facility is document confidentiality. Using Internet fax service, business users eliminate the risk posed by traditional fax machines of exposing private and confidential faxes as they sit idly on the paper tray.

BizCenter Logix is a complete business center solution developed for public access at airline club lounges, hotels, resorts, condominiums, apartments, libraries and similar places. Utilizing the combination of secure browser software ‘NetStopPro’ and a multi-function device, business centers can provide users with high speed Internet access, printing, copying, scanning and Internet faxing services.

“Offering business executives Internet based faxing capability in our business centers, provides them with the confidence that their fax communications remain secure and confidential with easy access through their email and from the web,” says, Abbas Sadriwalla, CEO, Wireless Logix Group. “With the integration of MyFax internet-based fax functionality into the BizCenter Logix solution, business center owners can further streamline their business processes and eliminate all associated costs of hardware, software and phone lines.”

The Human Capital Institute Hosts Networking Event for Ottawa Business Community

The Human Capital Institute Hosts Networking Event for Ottawa Business Community










Washington, D.C.; Ottawa (PRWEB) April 17, 2007

The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, announced today that Gabriel Bouchard, Vice-President and General Manager of Monster Canada, will speak at a networking breakfast for Ottawa’s business community.

The event, sponsored by Monster Canada, will take place on Thursday, May 3, 2007, from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM ET, on the University of Ottawa campus in Faculty of Law’s Fauteux Hall, located at 57 Louis Pasteur.

Bouchard’s presentation, Optimizing Recruitment Strategies in a Competitive Market — Ottawa, will explore how organizations can more effectively compete for Canada’s top talent.

There is tremendous competition for talent in Canada, and no organization can afford to be less than leading edge in its recruitment techniques — especially when it comes to the Internet which is now the number one destination for Canadian adults to find a new job. Bouchard’s presentation will begin with a brief review of the market forces creating the labor shortage and progress to specific recruitment strategies needed to meet the challenge.

Participants will learn to use tools like branding to become more attractive to a larger pool of qualified candidates and the Internet to significantly expand the reach and frequency of their recruitment campaigns. In addition, they will learn the importance of their Employer Value Proposition and how to create one by promoting the right benefits to the right audience, along with how to streamline the recruitment process to capture top talent.

At this session, Gabriel Bouchard, a leading authority on labour shortage issues and Internet recruiting, will share information and insight that can help Ottawa employers better leverage Internet recruiting, said Allan Schweyer, HCI’s President & Executive Director.

Gabriel Bouchard is Vice-President and General Manager of Monster Canada and one of Canada’s leading experts on employment and recruitment trends that are being driven by the evolution of the Internet and the demographic changes in the labour force.

In 1996, while Vice-President of Marketing at TMP Worldwide, Bouchard founded an online recruitment service. In 1997, he launched Monster.ca, a career site pioneer in Canada, his insights into how online recruiting and the new demographic trends are reshaping Canada’s employment marketplace have driven Monster Canada’s rapid growth as Canada’s expert source in online recruiting and one of the country’s most successful Internet companies. Bouchard regularly travels across Canada, speaking to organizations about the impact of current employment issues and how they factor into future planning.

Bouchard’s extensive experience includes work in the advertising field. Prior to joining Monster Canada, he was head of advertising and promotions at Radio-Québec. He also worked with BCP Strategy Creativity Inc., one of the largest advertising agencies in Quebec. As an entrepreneur, he also launched his own marketing-communication agency in 1991. Gabriel Bouchard holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the Université du Québec, de Montréal.

There is no charge for the Ottawa event, and it is open to the public. Interested professionals should call 866-538-1909 to register. For a list of Human Capital B-School events at prestigious universities throughout the U.S. and Canada, please visit: http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org
