You may think that nobody uses fax nowadays. But the fact of the matter is that most businesses still use fax machines extensively. Sometimes it is simply not possible for certain documents to be sent by any other means. Therefore, even in today's world which is dominated by emails and mobile phones, fax machines still play an important role in many organisations' business models. In such a situation, the news that it is possible to receive faxes sent from a fax machine, directly to your email inbox, is welcomed by all. By opting for a fax to email service, not only are you receiving faxes in a more efficient manner, using superior technology, you are also cutting down on the costs of paper, toner and fax machine maintenance.

Set up a fax number that your clients can use along with their existing fax machines. Any fax message that is sent to this number is then routed to a preconfigured mailbox as an attachment.
