Important Considerations for Choosing an Online Fax Service
What kind of security do you provide?
Businesses often rely on faxed documents to share sensitive information such as pricing quotes and contracts. Before you select a provider, make sure your information will be protected with data encryption.
Do you offer large file sharing?
If you plan on sending proposals or other large files, you may want to find out how your provider handles that volume.
Can I get my own fax number?
If you are looking to receive faxes, a fax number is going to be important (which is something you can’t get with a free fax service). A fax number can communicate something about your business. Be sure you have the option of picking a toll-free number to show you have a large, reputable presence or a local fax number to illustrate your community involvement.
Do you have electronic signature capabilities?
Many companies rely on faxes to obtain a signature for legal binding contracts or agreements. You'll want to make sure you can easily sign a PDF or other type of document.
How are faxes stored and accessed?
Your internet fax provider should be able to provide unlimited cloud storage of your fax documents. The ability to virtually file, sort and access faxed documents can come in handy down the road.
Do you have a mobile app?
Just as businesses have moved away from fax machines, more people are shifting from desktop computers to mobile tablets and phones. Be sure your provider allows you to send and receive faxes from a mobile device. With a good fax app, you can take a picture of what you want to send and avoid having to use a scanner too.
How can I access fax documents?
You’ll want to be able to send and receive through your email account.
Can I integrate my contact list from other programs?
The last thing you want to do is key in names and fax numbers. Be sure your provider can access and integrate existing contacts from other programs.
