What's The Most Important Benefit Of Using Online Fax?

May 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 145

When the discussion turns to using Internet or online fax, one of the very first questions which arises, pertains to its major benefit. Why should I use email fax? What's the point? My old fax machine works perfectly fine, thank you!

It's only after these "traditional" die-hard fans of the fax machine, realize the true benefits of using an online system for all their faxing, then and only then, are a few minds changed. Like all things new, this relatively recent technology, has taken some time to gain wide acceptance among companies and small business owners.

What wins these companies and individuals over, is the major benefit of online fax - complete portability or mobility. This new way of faxing is directly tied into the web and your email program, so it can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Of course, you do have to be connected to the web, but these days with smart phones, ipads and netbooks - it means you can send and receive a fax just about anywhere on the planet.

Online fax gives you "location independence" as Christian Watts of FAXAGE puts it, complete freedom from just the office setting. You and your business can be located anywhere you or your employees are located. This greatly expands the "reach" of your company, especially in these times, when more and more people are working at home or in different locations around the world.

Because of this portability, staying in constant contact with your customers and clients, is easy and very convenient. If you need to send a fax, just log into your online account and in a matter of seconds, your message is on its way. And since we are using the web, your message or fax can be encrypted for even greater security and you will also get a confirmation that your message has been received. When you receive a fax, your provider sends you an email with the fax attached, or you can check into your account to read it.

Using an online fax provider is also much cheaper than using a traditional system, mainly because you don't have to install a separate fax phone line and you don't have to buy any of those inks, toners or even a fax machine for that matter. In addition, the rates or costs of sending your messages will be less expensive. Keep in mind, this is an ongoing business expense and these cost-savings can be significant.

However, despite all these major "pluses" or benefits, it is this complete portability, which wins the day. Just having a web based fax system that's directly linked to all your computers and all your employees, regardless of where they are located, is the major selling point. If faxing is a vital part of your company's operation, than it simply means you're open for business around the clock. Clients or customers can contact your business at any time, they are no longer limited to the old "9 to 5" routine or the actual location of your company.

This portability or mobility can also make your company or business more competitive, especially against any competitor who is not using this new technology. And that as they say, in these harsh economic times especially, can make all the difference in the world.
