Webinar - What to Consider When Selecting 'Fax as a Service'
By Juliana Kenny, TMCnet Managing Editor
Fax is still an important part of everyday business communications, and the complications with integrating fax into a company’s communication network can seem daunting. Obstacles may arise when considering what the best fax solution is to implement into your network, and how it will effectively integrate with your already-established communications infrastructure.
One notion to consider is the one of “fax as a service” or “cloud fax.” While the cloud itself is the hot button topic of the technology world these days, not many decision makers consider cloud computing in relationship to fax software.
At times it seems like trying to blend the old with the new, but fax plays a vital role in modern business communications, and fax in the cloud is going to bring power to businesses in the coming years.
The proper “fax as a service” solution can improve efficiency, increase compliance, and reduce cost. As a provider of cloud-based electronic messaging and business integration services, EasyLink has much to say on this subject.
Thought leaders from the company believe that moving from a disconnected, costly fax system to an outsourced fax service is one of the best ways to go about incorporating fax into a corporate network infrastructure. And it does not have to be done at great cost to the business.
Migrating to a cloud-based communications model in general has proven to eliminate infrastructure costs, improve scalability and enable simple maintenance of compliance. In a webinar coming up on March 6 at 2 p.m. ET, EasyLink is going to share some if these lessons it’s learned as a time-tested electronic messaging provider.
The webinar is going to dive into the issues surrounding what fax as a service is, how to select a fax service that enhances the value of enterprise applications, and what cloud fax means for the future. The speakers from the company have spent years as observers and participants in the world of fax communications, and they’ve got some pretty solid ideas of where it’s going to go.
