OSA Connector

WestFax Secure Cloud Fax OSA Application
for Enterprise Healthcare.


Sharp MFP Fax SetupThe WestFax Secure Cloud Fax OSA Application (OSA) is an On-Premises Tool that allows Sharp MFPs to send faxes via the WestFax API, enabling customers to integrate WestFax services into their Sharp MFP infrastructure with minimal effort. At its core, the OSA runs as a Windows service and hosts modules that provide a variety of common integration points with WestFax services.

Our secure HTTPS TLS 1.2+/REST web API backs all the features of the OSA. We have created the OSA to provide our customers with a robust set of configurable capabilities and features, reducing the development overhead that may be incurred with a custom WestFax API integration to the MFP or a lessor Scan to Email workflow.

To utilize the WestFax Secure Cloud Fax OSA Application you must have an Enterprise WestFax account. If you don't have an Enterprise account contact our enterprise sales team at sales@westfax.com or 800-473-6208

Our OSA Connector software can be installed on a local server or VM that has minimal system requirements. We have seen some users set it up in a datacenter and all the organizations sharp devices utilize it directly.
We support all the current Sharp MFP's that are actively supported by Sharp. Even devices that are over 10 years old will probably still work perfectly. If you aren't sure just ask us and we'll let you know. You can see our Listing on the Sharp Partners page.
No, while a lot of other fax companies just use the scan to fax functionality we utilize an API connection secured with TLS 1.2+ encryption to ensure your sensitive documents are transmitted securely.
You must start with a WestFax account. We are happy to let you test it with a basic fax account and will assist with setting it up for you. Once you are setup and it works perfectly your account must be upgraded to Enterprise, which gives you additional functionality and workflow optimizations. Reach outto us to learn more.
Not with the OSA connector but you can utilize our CloudFax Toolkit to enable auto-print. Auto-Print is simple to setup and configure. Just set the fax number, start date and the select the printer and we'll print your inbound faxes to that printer immediately.
