Nextiva vFAX officials are toutingtheir service as being one where, "all you need is an Internet connection in order to send and receive faxes."
According to Nextiva officials, the online fax service is "easy to use, affordable and gives you great flexibility."
Indeed, one distinct advantage of an online fax service is no paper jams, system errors, or busy signals.
This is because Nextiva online fax will enable you to fax by e-mail, via Microsoft (News - Alert) Office, from your online control panel, or continue sending faxes through your fax machine.
Some features the company promises:
No more busy signals. "No matter which method you chose to fax through our service, we will keep sending your fax until your party's fax Machine is available. Go sit down and relax. We will send you the confirmation.," company officials promise.
Send and receive by fax machine. Nextiva officials describe themselves as "one of the only providers to allow you to keep your fax machine for convenient sending of paper based faxes. Plug your fax machine into our adapter and voila! Now your fax machine works through the Internet best of all we will still store a copy for you to retrieve from anywhere."
And don't worry, cell phone junkies, "you can send, receive and retrieve faxes by using the e-mail function on your cell phone. In many cases, we can port over your existing fax number to our service. Please contact sales to check to see if your number is portable."
Plus it works with the PC turned off, so you don't miss any faxes.
And their "US-based" technical support even makes the claim that "We love hand holding, call us we are here to help." At any rate, it's a nice sentiment.
