The first Salesforce App to integrate eFax, the most popular electronic fax solution, to provide basic sending and receiving of faxes from inside Salesforce to complete automation to send documents and receive them using barcode identification feature.
The A5 Fax application bundles several Services (listed below) and Customer agrees to utilize all Services within the limits of each Service provider’s terms and conditions of use. This Agreement assumes A5 Fax has been installed and configured on a Salesforce.com organization utilizing the App Exchange.
eFax: Ramsey Solutions is a reseller of eFax and A5 Fax utilizes eFax for all facsimile communication.
Azure.com: A5 Fax utilizes Azure for external web servers to connect Salesforce and eFax
Salesforce.com: A5 Fax is made specifically on the Salesforce App Exchange and utilizes Force.com infrastructure to sync eFax facsimile services with Salesforce.com.
Charges Per Page
Faxes received are charged at $0.15 per page. Outbound Faxes are charged at $0.15 per Outbound Fax Page according to Associated Outbound Terms (see section 2.2 below).
Definition of Outbound Fax Page and Associated Outbound Terms:
Most fax pages take less than sixty (60) seconds to transmit. However, for each outbound transmission, the number of pages sent is calculated based on the greater of the actual number of pages or the number of full and partial 60-second increments of transmission or connection time, whether or not the transmission occurs or is completed (such as instances when someone answers the call or transmission is interrupted before completion). For example, a one page fax with a transmission duration of 30 seconds is recognized as one page and a one page fax with a transmission duration of one minute and six seconds is recognized as two pages.
Monthly Licensing Fees
$50.00/month for the first Billable Service Number.
$15.00/month for each additional Billable Service Number.

Customer Support Standards
Availability. Ramsey Solutions will provide support to answering incoming customer support phone calls and e-mail messages 9am-5pm PST Monday-Friday.
Speed to Answer. Ramsey Solutions’s goal is to reply to all support requests within 48 hours of contact or sooner.
Maintenance and Performance Standards

Web Site Availability. Ramsey Solutions’s goal is to maintain all Website and Web access servers to operate at not less than a 99.5% service level.
Delivery of Inbound Faxes. Ramsey Solutions’s goal is to attempt initial delivery of 95% of all incoming faxes of five pages or less to the Customer via the Internet within 5 minutes (larger sized faxes, by their very nature, take more time to process).
Timing of Delivery of Outbound Faxes. Ramsey Solutions’s goal is to send 95% of all faxes of five pages or less within 10 minutes of receipt by Ramsey Solutions from the Internet of the request to send the fax (larger sized faxes, by their very nature, take more time to process).
Credit Allowances for SLA Failures and Service Outages
SLA Failures. If in any given month the Customer believes that Ramsey Solutions has failed to achieve any of the foregoing goals, the Customer must deliver a written request to Ramsey Solutions within 14 days following the end of the month for a report detailing Ramsey Solutions’s performance against the given goal. Ramsey Solutions will provide the report to the Customer within 14 days of receipt of the request. If the report demonstrates failure to achieve the given goal, an “SLA Failure” will have occurred under the Agreement for the impacted service (the “Impacted Agreement”) and Ramsey Solutions will provide the Customer a service credit of 1% of the Customer’s monthly recurring fee (or 1% of 1/12 of the Customer’s annual fee) under the Impacted Agreement, multiplied by the percentage by which Ramsey Solutions failed to achieve the given goal. For example, if Ramsey Solutions achieves a 90% delivery of outbound faxes under Section 2.4 above, then the Customer would be eligible to receive a service credit of 5% under the Impacted SOF. Customer may request up to four (4) such reports per any 12-month period, plus one (1) additional report for each prior report that demonstrates failure to achieve any goal.
