March 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

How can I send a fax from my computer? That's a frequent questionyou often hear in today's computer obsessed world. Just how does one go about sending a fax from a computer or PC?

While anyone with a fax modem can send a fax from their computer, manycompanies and individuals have opted for an easier online solution to meetall their faxing needs. In other words, like many services connected withtoday's computers, they have turned to the cloud. They use "cloud computing"to handle all their faxing requirements.

One often hears the phrase "in the cloud", but what exactly does this mean?

It simply means your computer files, hosting or in our case fax services, are located on remote third-party computers far from your place of business.Companies or individuals pay a small fee in return for these services.

Send Fax From Computer

Basically, this means signing up to an online fax service provider who actsas your intermediary to handle all your faxes. Your faxes are stored online (in the cloud) and you can access them from anywhere you have a web connection. Once you sign-up, you're given an online account or interface where you canlog in and check your faxes.

Of course, in this age of smart phones, iPads and tablets of all kinds, manyof these fax providers have an "app" or desktop application which you can downloadand place on your computer desktop or your favorite gadget. Then you can easilyuse this application to receive and send a fax from your computer.

Needless to say, this offers great convenience and is very affordable. Mostservices run on average around $8 to $10 a month, but you will find muchcheaper vendors, especially if you shop around first. You can also save money if you opt for an annual fax service plan as this will deliversignificant savings. In some cases, if one's faxing requirements are very low - you can get a yearly fax service for under $20.

Another popular option for some companies or home businesses where faxing does not play a major role, is to opt for a "pay-as-you-go" online fax plan. Similar to cell phone plans, you only pay for theminutes or faxes which you use.

Using your computer to send all your faxes will save you money in other ways as well. This is a paperless system so there is no need to buy papers, inks, toners or even a traditional fax machine for that matter. However, your biggest cost savings will probably come from NOT having toinstall and run a separate fax phone line.

Remember, with an online fax service, your messages are sent as emailattachments, usually in a Tiff or Pdf format. Most, if not all providers,will give you a free 30 Day Free Trial so you can check out their services beforeyou buy. There are also corporate fax plans which can be custom tailored tomeet your needs. Once you start sending your faxes from your computer - youmay never look back!
