Don't Miss Out on That Contract

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by eFax Team

As the owner or manager of a small business, you know how important it is to make every sale count. Your company's success likely depends on your ability to convince clients and customers that your products or services will mprove their wellbeing.

However, being able to close the sale is only useful if your business is equipped to process transactions and collect payments.

For years, organizations have relied on faxing as a means to transact business that requires a signature or hand-notation (as with contracts, loans or other agreements).

Even in the era of PDF and email attachments, many companies will not accept email attachments for transacting business, as an email attachment is not considered a secure way to transmit documents. Fax -- as a point to point transmission medium -- is considered much more secure and reliable than email.

And online fax, which combines the benefits of email with the security of fax, offers a great way to send documents in a more secure manner, faster.

As more people become accustomed to using mobile devices, email and other virtual platforms to share and process information, your company could be missing out if you're still only using traditional fax machines. For instance, if your client does not have access to a fax machine, he or she may be unable to send you a contract that would close the deal. This can have a devastating impact on sales and your bottom line.

Online faxing can make things easier. Business professionals everywhere can use internet faxing to communicate with customers and other companies. By switching to the cloud and using email to fax information, you can keep your business efficient and your sales up.
