Fax machines have gotten much smaller than they used to be, but they still aren’t small enough. After all, a fax machine must be big enough to house a numbered pad, A4 sheets of paper and in some cases the receiver, which can take up a valuable amount of space in a small office. Consequently, it isn't surprising that some companies will brainstorm ways to eliminate fax machines altogether by simply integrating fax technology into copy machines or scanners. However, if you don't need a copy machine or scanner, this form of faxing is just as useless as having an actual fax machine.
Luckily, craftier fax users were able to create the Internet fax. Sending faxes over the internet means not having to buy expensive equipment, take up useful office space or spend large amounts of money on fax paper, fax charges or repairmen to service the machine.
Send Faxes on the Go With a Mobile Fax App
The purpose of the Internet fax wasn't only to eliminate wastage of space or extra costs; it was created with flexibility in mind. Most business owners or managers are on the go and frequently travel outside of their primary location for business. This however, does not exempt them from their normal administrative duties, which may include sending important faxes. With the Internet fax they can send and receive faxes using their e-mail with ease.
To help business owners of every size we embraced the true computing power of the mobile phone. We now have a smartphone app that allows you to snap a photo of the document you want faxed or simply attach it from a file on your phone, and send it to the recipient using their fax number. The fax is sent securely and instantly just as it would be when using the email fax option.
If you don't have your own business and you simply want to send faxes every now and again, you could benefit greatly from using the mobile fax app
rather than having to buy a fax machine.
Seems Easy, but is it Really?
It really is that simple. Simply download the app, sign up for an account and choose the fax number you want to send from. Depending on your preference, this can be a local, international or toll free number.
Attach the document you want to fax, enter the recipient's fax firstname.lastname@example.org and send the fax. After it’s sent you will receive a confirmation, so you can ensure each fax is successfully sent.
