Going on Vacation? No Need to Pack the Fax Machine

Sunday, June 24, 2012 by The eFax Team

Small business owners are known for their need to be "on call" for their business. This 24/7 mentality can take its toll over time, and the obvious solution is a little bit of R&R.

Everyone deserves a vacation every so often ⁠— especially small business owners, who often wear multiple hats and feel the need to remain chained to their desks.

However, with modern business needs and demanding clients, taking a vacation can pose a problem for people hoping to leave the office for a few days. If faxing is critical for your business, as it is for many, including financial planners, real estate agents, and lawyers, taking time off can be an especially difficult proposition. Unless you feel like lugging your fax machine (and a long extension cord and phone line!) to the beach, you might be out of luck when it comes to sending or receiving that urgent proposal or contract.

This won't be a problem if you have a fax by computer service. If so, basking in the sun doesn't mean you're out of the range of sending or receiving a fax. With online faxing, you can have important documents sent directly to your inbox ⁠— meaning you can receive them wherever you are, even in a cozy ski lodge or a tropical hut.

What if you need to fax a reply? With a mobile fax app like the one from eFax, you can send faxes from your mobile device (iPhone or Android) just as easily as you can receive them. Whether it's a time-sensitive message or an official document, online faxing means you don't have to worry.

If you're concerned with sending or receiving faxes while you're on vacation, online faxing keeps you in the loop.
