Are fax machines a thing of the past?

Almost every business uses fax to send or receive documents, invoices or other paperwork in less than a minute. However, the trend is changing today. More and more businesses are opting for more eco-friendly options like 'fax to email' to reduce the paper used and also the time and space needed for filing and storing the documents. I recommend all my clients go for this highly efficient fax to email option, even if it is only for convenience and not to reduce the carbon footprint.

Why make the change?

The digital age has eliminated the need for fax machines in many offices. However, some business still use them to receive occasional faxes. Considering the really low volume of faxes you get, investing in traditional fax machines might not be the best approach for you.

Consider:
  • the cost of the machine
  • the cost of paper consumed by the fax machine
  • the space it takes up for both
  • the time it eats up walking to and from the machine to send and receive faxes

Some of the advantages of a Fax to Email service are:

Reduce costs - You cut down the costs involved in purchasing paper and ink significantly. By keeping the same fax number, you can send and receive up to 500 faxes a month for a meager price of $14.95. Isn't it just awesome?

Convenience - In simple terms, you won't have to keep going back and forth from your seat to the fax machine to send or receive a document. You can sit at your desk and get the job done. 

Improve Efficiency - You know how tediously long it takes to send a fax or receive one through the conventional machine. Waiting for the document to come through when you are in urgent need of it is the last thing you would want. With the fax to email option, the document is delivered straight to your inbox, as the incoming faxes are converted into emails. Also, when you opt for the email to fax option, you can send a single fax to multiple recipients on a single click. This significantly reduces the time taken to send faxes.

Eco-Friendly - Lastly, you will be doing your bit for the environment when you choose the fax to email or email to fax option, by reducing the amount of paper used for it.
