Virtual PBX Feature: Got Virtual Fax?

Virtual fax - yes it's still around, if you're not set up for it you might be missing something. Like, something called 'business.'

Not to fear, Nextiva offers a virtual fax service, and at $6.95 a month, you're not likely to find too much quality for a less expensive price, especially seeing as how Nextiva's giving 500 out-and inbound faxes for that price. Pretty competitive. 

'What makes it unique,' company officials say, 'is that it's the only on the market that support a actual fax machine, where as other ones are only e-mail based - you can buy a bridge adapter so it will work with your actual fax machine- in case you don’t feel like or want to use the virtual fax concept.'

Because hey, we know not everybody's ready for the virtual fax concept. Don’t worry, chief, Nextiva's here for you, they'll take it slow and easy. Everybody has a different pace when it comes to virtual fax.

Nextiva officials say they've seen 'a lot of growth' since launching the virtual fax among SMBs, entrepreneurs, professionals such as lawyers and doctors . Why? 'It's so much easier because there is no paper trail, no need to buy cartridges – it's all virtual and works like e-mail.'

And we know you can operate e-mail.

The service lets you send a fax anywhere you have an Internet connection, and there aren't any busy signals. You can send to and from Microsoft applications, and instead of hitting the print button, simply select 'Fax' right from Word, Excel, whatever. Hey you can even send and receive via e-mail.

As the company's Web site says, 'Fax by E-mail, fax through Microsoft Office, fax thru your Web portal, or keep sending faxes through your existing fax machine.'
