Central Fax

Central Fax

The Division of IT offers a centralized, computer-based fax solution that can replace stand-alone fax machines, analog phone lines, and postal mail. Faxing directly from your desktop eliminates the need for consumables like paper and toner and reduces risk by ensuring documents do not sit on fax machines in public areas.

Please note, no new requests for this service are being accepted. We are in the final stages of awarding an RFP to transition central fax services to an externally hosted fax solution, which will offer increased capacity and an improved user experience.

If you have an immediate faxing need, please contact Tech Support at 573.882.5000 to discuss your options.

Central Fax Service provides the following benefits to departments:

  • Efficiency and productivity: send and receive faxes directly from the desktop.
  • Savings: eliminate phone lines and stand-alone fax machines, reduce paper and supply costs.
  • Security: secure document delivery and information exchange.
  • Compliant: We use the RightFax system which has been assessed and approved for use with DCL3 data. However, Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards require using traditional fax lines when transmitting PCI data.

Note: Central Fax Service is not a document management system; sent and received faxes are automatically purged from the server after 30 days.

There is a fax number fee of $1 per number for MU and UM System departments and a $13.00 per month fee for MU Healthcare departments.
