Reducing your reliance on hardware can help your SMB

Monday, May 28, 2012 by The eFax Team

For SMBs, fiscal responsibility is paramount - even a problem that seems minor at first can topple yours if you're not careful. As such, it's important to be proactive with potential problems and solve them before they grow.

One perennial source of frustration is malfunctioning hardware. Whenever possible, it's best to minimize your reliance on technology that has a tendency to break or jam, and whose function is crucial. For example, transitioning from a traditional fax machine to internet faxing is a good way to avoid the possibility of a jam or failing phone line. Using an email to fax service ensures that, as long as you have an internet connection, you'll be able to send to fax.

Similarly, adapting your SMB to this method can be a reliable way to save money and reduce the chance of a device malfunctioning. Using an external source with continuous support to store data and provide communication services helps reduce the chance of a system wide failure.

Reducing your susceptibility to breakdowns and saving money by cutting back on inefficient hardware can help your SMB stay successful.
