OpenText vs FaxCore Features Comparison

OpenText vs. FaxCore


OpenText utilizes advanced security protocols, such as 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), enhancing their capability to protect your faxes while in transit and at rest. Their OpenText XM Fax offers reporting and audit tracking for users to monitor suspicious activities.

As an OpenText alternative, FaxCore also uses 256-bit AES and TLS 1.2 encryption to strengthen its security. It also complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) guidelines and is HITRUST CSF certified.

HIPAA compliance

If you need to use a HIPAA-compliant fax service, then both OpenText and FaxCore are suitable for you to use. They both offer signed Business Associate Agreements (BAA) to their clients who need to handle protected health information (PHI) in compliance with the standards set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

Device applications

As an alternative to FaxCore, OpenText has dedicated applications for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android. These apps offer more convenience and flexibility, making it possible to fax from anywhere, using only a phone or computer.

FaxCore’s lack of dedicated mobile fax applications limits its capability to integrate seamlessly with modern workflows. Still, you have other options, such as viewing and managing your faxes using its web app. Also, its API lets you access your faxes using a third-party data management system.

API and developer support

OpenText offers free fax API access for its users for 90 days, making it convenient for them to test the API first. They can then decide whether it is suitable for integrating faxing capabilities into respective applications, including CRM, EMR, and EHR systems.

As an alternative to OpenText, FaxCore offers a RESTful API for its users. Access to this API is also free. Users can also request sample codes and ask for assistance in integrating the API into their existing software systems.

Fax broadcasting

With OpenText, users are only allowed to send faxes to one recipient at a time. It lacks the option that helps simultaneous faxing to a specified group of recipients.

FaxCore, on the other hand, offers fax broadcasting to its users, allowing them to send one fax to multiple recipients simultaneously, requiring less effort and time. Users can also create a list of contacts, making sorting recipients for targeted broadcasts easier.


Both OpenText and FaxCore offer fax OCR capabilities to their users. This feature allows users to extract blocks of text from faxed documents more efficiently. The goal is to have the texts extracted so they are easier to search, edit, and organize.

Yes, OpenText offers unlimited number porting for their local US and international clients. However, it is important to note that their number porting has its price, and it is not for free in OpenText’s XMFax. For every number ported, the service will charge you 150 prepaid credits and 250 credits for a toll-free fax number. You can contact them directly if you have inquiries on how their number porting works.
