Use DataFax as a software package installed on a server in your own data center. Software as a service and per study pricing isn’t for everyone, that’s why we provide the option of installing DataFax on your own servers and running as many studies as you want for a single annual fee - a very cost effective solution for large research groups.

The DataFax server software can be installed on a computer running any of the following operating systems.

  • Solaris (SPARC or Intel) available from Oracle and Dell
  • Linux: Novell openSUSE Linux 11 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
  • Mac OS X: versions 10.5 (Leopard), 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion)

The required infrastructure includes:

  • TCP/IP networking
  • PostScript compatible printer
  • Backup system for archival and retrieval of study data
  • Desktop publishing package for CRF creation

Sites and data managers connect to your server using the following applications:

  • iDataFax – for data entry and review, query management, reports, etc.
  • DFsend - an alternative to faxing which sends PDFs to the server over the internet

System and study administrators also use the following applications:

  • DFsetup – used to create study databases and configuration files
  • DFsystem – used to create and manage study roles and user login accounts
  • DFATK - our Acceptance Test Kit for software validation
