How Internet Faxing Can Improve Your Business' Efficiency
Having quick and efficient communication is absolutely crucial for a growing and profitable business. We all know the cliché saying, time is money – well it’s absolutely true. Miscommunication between you and your employees, or your business and another costs you money; instead of moving on to the next call or meeting you're stuck resolving minor issues. The most frustrating appliances in an office are typically the printers and fax machines. Running out of paper or ink, paper jams, or faxes that are sent and never received – these kinds of annoyances happen every day, and time spent dealing with them is time not spent on the next task.
Printers are hard to do without. As communication shifts towards the internet and files become computerized printers are being used less and less, but hard copies are still necessary. However, one appliance that can easily be replaced is your fax machine, and the obvious solution is internet faxing. Using an online fax service has a multitude of benefits that will save your business both time and money.
The Benefits of Online Faxing
Internet fax services
allow you to send and receive faxes through your Email. This cuts out the time spent waiting for the fax to come through and print out. The most obvious cost-cut, however, is the fax machine itself. Not only the physical machine, but this also includes the cost of paper, ink (which is ridiculously expensive), and the extra phone line needed to send and receive faxes.
Apart from the hundreds of dollars in savings from hardware and supplies, online faxing also gives you flexibility and speed. With an internet faxing service you don’t have to be in the office attached to the fax machine to retrieve a fax. You can be on vacation in California
or even Hawaii
, and still receive online faxes in your Email inbox. While traditional fax machines have to be turned on to receive a fax, an online fax will be waiting in your inbox whether your computer is on or not. You can even retrieve them through your smart phone
Companies with the most to gain with internet faxing are those who have heavy daily traffic on their fax machine. As I said before, you can save hundreds of dollars on supplies, but internet fax companies only charge a minimal monthly fee. Online faxing also allows you to send and receive multiple faxes at once. This is where internet faxing can really improve your business’ speed and efficiency. Instead of having to wait for one fax to go through before sending the other (or one fax to print out before the next) you can send or receive them all at once.
