Online Fax Services Comparison - Why You Should Always Compare Before Buying

February 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

We have all been there, bought a product or service only to find out later that it did not measure up to our expectations. Most times if we're lucky, the purchased item can be returned and we are fully refunded. However, we have still wasted a lot of time and if you're running a business, time means money. That's why everyone should make it their own personal policy to totally compare and research a service or product before they buy.

That goes doubly true for a long term service like online fax. Usually, once you have received your fax number and start sending it out to all your contacts, you have made a commitment of sorts to having the service long term. You simply must do a little homework to make sure you get a service or provider that won't disappoint you or your company down the road. Now that we have the Internet, that's relatively very easy to do.

For those who are new to these types of services, it should be stated that Internet or online fax is simply using your present email account and your web connection to do all your faxing. You get a local or toll-free number which is connected to your email address, once you get a fax, you receive an email with the fax attached. Basically, you're hiring the services of an online provider who will handle all your faxes in exchange for a small monthly fee. These web based fax services are paperless, very efficient, totally portable and much cheaper than conventional methods of faxing.

While some services do let you "port" your fax number, it's best to pick the right provider the first time around. So you need to do your due diligence and carefully examine the different plans and different providers to meet your needs. One simple way to approach this problem is to just compare the different providers. Just compare some basic factors of each provider on your list to come up with the one best suited to meet your needs.

These factors would include: quality of the overall service, pricing, overage fees, amount of online storage, length of storage, support hours, number of email addresses, any hidden fees, set-up fees, corporate plans or services and whether or not the service has a free trial? All valid questions you should ask before signing up to any one of these providers.

You should also search out any customer reviews of the different fax providers to see if there are any major ongoing issues. Feedback of this nature is always good when judging the merits of any one service. Checking out the different forums is also another wise route to take, but in the final analysis, it will be your own judgement which will count. That's where the 30 Day Free Trials are vital and will give you the final say in which online fax service you choose.

In conclusion, making a thorough comparison of all these different providers will give you all the information you need to make a wise decision. As mentioned before, this is usually a long term business expense, so picking the right one now will save you both money and hassles down the road. Do a little homework and become a smarter buyer, spend a little time now and you will reap the benefits for years to come.
