The Advantages of an Electronic Fax Service
Having an electronic fax service enables you to send and receive faxes via email, which affords several advantages over a standard fax machine.
An Electronic Fax Service Saves Time and Money
Standard fax machines require toner and paper. While minimal costs in themselves, they can add up if your business sends or receives hundreds of faxes per day. Waiting for the fax machine also wastes time better spent working on other projects. Faxes sent and received over a communal fax machine also don't allow for privacy. Anyone can see the faxes as they arrive.
With an electronic fax service, you don't need to print any faxes at all, even those you plan to send on to other recipients. Faxes can be edited and forwarded in your email program or browser and then resent to another recipient without ever printing a hard copy. This feature reduces paper waste and eliminates the need for fax machine toner.
Sending and receiving faxes at their workstations also enables employees to work on other things while waiting for the fax. They will be notified via email when their fax is sent. It also allows for some privacy, as no one will be able to see the fax other than the intended recipient.
Biscom's software enables users of our fax servers and hosted fax services to integrate their email programs, Web browsers, SharePoint software, and other business tools with the Biscom software. Users can then send and receive faxes in their email inbox, or in their Web browser. Faxes can also be automatically routed to SharePoint. Other applications, such as Advanced Fax Routing, can reduce the amount of time spent redirecting incoming faxes to their proper places. It also allows you further to streamline the process by changing where faxes are sent when employees are out of the office.
