Faxing is still an integral part of business communications. Read the benefits of transitioning your business from traditional faxing to an online faxing service using the cloud.
An online fax solution offers many advantages over a traditional on-premise system. Learn why businesses are taking the initiative to go paperless and migrate to the cloud.
Fax is still one of the most secure ways businesses transmit important and sensitive information. With the evolution of digital technology and the internet, the introduction of online fax has provided additional benefits to users that cannot be provided by traditional fax solutions.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of using an online fax service and why it is increasingly becoming a replacement for the traditional fax machine.
Benefits of an Online Fax Service
Streamline Business Operations
An online fax service allows your business to operate more efficiently by allowing your employees to send and receive documents at the touch of a button. By removing the limitations of a physical fax machine, employees can work more efficiently and without interruptions. No more waiting in line, each user can have their own access to transmit documents.
Access From Anywhere
Since online fax is software based, you no longer need to operate different machines to send and receive faxes. Users can now use their computer or mobile device from virtually anywhere that has an internet connection. This especially has become convenient for businesses who have had to move to remote operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With traditional fax, users typically keep separate records of incoming and outgoing faxes. These files can be time consuming to go through and can easily be misplaced. With online fax, you can have automated record keeping for all your transmissions. Some service providers, such as AT&T Website Solutions, offer archives which can be accessed for an extended time period.
With a stable internet connection, your chances of having downtime are minimal. There are no more paper jams, low toner notifications or machine maintenance to worry about.
The benefits of using an online solution provides significant cost savings to businesses:
- No need to purchase and setup a physical machine
- No need for extra phone lines
- Only print the documents you need to. Save on paper stock, ink or toner cartridges and storage.
Growing businesses often are concerned about costs associated with scale, with online fax you can scale your fax bandwidth up or down anytime without having to purchase additional machines or lines.
