There’s still a lot of businesses that rely on fax. The great thing about using a virtual fax service is that it can decrease operational costs associated with in-house fax systems or dedicated fax lines. It’s also easy to scale up or down your fax lines and meet and comply with security requirements.
If any of you are familiar with administering an in-house fax server you’ll know that it can be a big pain, not to mention costly.
Hmmm… Okay let’s talk some more about the benefits of using a hosted solution, because really there are a lot of them.
No Capital Outlay — With no additional hardware to acquire, capital expenditures are reduced and depreciation schedules eliminated. The risks associated with installing 3rd party software on your network are eliminated as well.
Utilization of Existing Infrastructure - Because outsourced fax services leverage existing email client and infrastructure, getting started is quick and seamless. Another great benefit of an outsourced solution is that you don’t have to hire or train additional staff to run the system.
Scalable and Flexible - With a hosted solution, companies are not constrained by their number of outbound telephone lines or system capacity. Hosted solutions are designed to be highly scalable to handle either rapid growth or reduced volume, based on market trends and patterns.
Self-Administering - The outsourced fax provider performs any required system maintenance and monitoring, upgrading and adding new features as they become available, freeing up your IT resources to focus on your core business.
How Fax2Mail Works
Desktop users can send, receive, save, forward and track electronic faxes in seconds - right from their desktops. Documents no longer sit on the fax machine for everyone to see, and you’ll never experience the frustration of missing another important document because the fax number is busy. Work is accomplished faster, with total reliability and added security.
Fax2Mail allows you to turn your desktop into a document handling center for all inbound faxes. Receiving faxes as attachments means you can treat paper documents like electronic files by viewing, printing, forwarding or deleting them. Additionally, you can rename the file and save it to your computer for easy document storage. Tracking inbound and outbound faxes can be next to impossible with traditional fax machines. However, Fax2Mail gives you complete control of all your e-fax and email documents via online administration tools. Using our secure SSL Web interface, you can control user registration, edit account profiles, and customize settings and options such as coversheet/email design, billing and delivery reports. And you can choose your own local or toll-free fax numbers.
How much does it cost? A Fax2Mail individual plan starts at less than $10/month. You get your own private fax number and up to 300 fax pages for that price. Our Corporate Fax2Mail plans can even offer better savings. Call us for pricing on the Corporate plans
Oh… Did I mention that your faxes come to you in either a adobe acrobat .pdf file or a .tif file. Nice!
