IP technology has not only made voice communication dramatically cheaper, people have also discovered the ways to leverage the same technology for sending faxes over Internet. In addition to being cheaper than traditional faxing, IP faxing gives you greater control over your faxing activities. Thanks to its many benefits, online fax services are fast gaining momentum.
But when it comes to choosing suitable fax service providers, companies and individuals often find themselves in great dilemma. OnlineFaxGuide.com was founded in 2006 with the aim of helping these confused businesses and individuals to find the right Internet fax service for their needs. A comprehensive resource for authentic Internet faxing information, the site contains videos, slideshows and comparison charts. For years, the site’s free, downloadable guides have been helping users to quickly choose a suitable fax service or provider. This year, OnlineFaxGuide.com is celebrating its 7th anniversary.
Just like VoIP provides companies with a tool to cut down on their communication costs, FoIP provides a cheaper alternative to traditional faxing — at home or in a corporate environment. Since it is a paperless system, the operating costs of IP Faxing are much lower.
As said above, low cost is not the only benefit of using IP faxing. A cloud-hosted service, for example, is completely portable. All you need is any web- connected device such as a netbook, laptop or smart phone to send and receive faxes over Internet.
Earlier this year, VoIP Review, a website providing information about VoIP services and service providers, announced several ways in which IP faxing can improve businesses in 2013.
Eco-friendly IP faxing systems eliminate the need for physical fax machines and users do not have to invest on ink or paper. VoIP Review’s officials said that users can still send the IP fax to a traditional fax machine, but it is more time and cost effective to send it over the Internet.
With IP faxing, users can receive faxes via their email. Thanks to this, users can access their faxes via their smartphones, computers, laptops and tablets. Additionally, users receive an alert when they receive a fax, so incoming faxes do not go unnoticed or ignored.
People are always of two minds before they welcome any new technology into their lives, and the same is applicable for IP faxing. OnlineFaxGuide seeks to educate the potential users on the basics of using an Internet fax provider, how this relatively new service works and the many benefits of using virtual fax service. The site also provides information about broader services such as Virtual PBX (News - Alert) systems, which are suited for small businesses and/or home offices.
By providing updated information on discounts and promotional packages from major IP Fax providers, OnlineFaxGuide hopes to help customers select the best IP Fax service that not only satisfies their needs but also matches the size of their pockets.
