SFM (Store-and-Forward Manager)

An SFM is a software system that stores messages sent from one computer to another. It holds them on behalf of the sender until the destination machine becomes available to receive them. This function allows two computers that are not constantly connected—such as a home computer and a laptop—to exchange files. The SFM on one machine acts as a server for the other.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About SFM (Store-and-Forward Manager)

The SFM helps small businesses by allowing them to exchange documents easily. This can be useful for employees who work remotely or travel frequently and those with laptops or other mobile devices who wish to sync them to a home computer. With data becoming more important, organizations must have a reliable transfer method that saves time and money and allows employees to work more efficiently.
