Faxing can be as easy and hassle-free as email. You can send and receive faxes as email attachments and access them on computer, laptop or phone in the same way as you check your emails.
Faxes are delivered straight to your inbox and the information therefore remains confidential. You don’t need a bulky fax machine, it helps the environment because you don’t use fax paper or toner cartridges and there are no additional phoneline costs. You can also store, view and access your faxes online, normally for up to one year - no more excuses of the lost fax that disappeared under a pile of office paperwork! In fact, less paperwork and less filing altogether. However do check storage facilities carefully (15-20MB is common) and delete sensitive business information.
Small businesses use a fax to email services in a variety of ways. For example you might decide everyone in the office needs a dedicated fax number connected directly to their email so they can receive faxed orders right at their desk. For those on the road all day the convenience of sending and receiving faxes to a laptop or phone is unbeatable. And some customers are simply more comfortable sending faxes and businesses need to offer the facility or risk looking unprofessional.
You will not require any hardware or software, can chose local or non-geographical numbers and have faxes delivered in compatible file formats like PDF.
