Anytime, Anywhere Faxing with Your iPhone

Modern technology allows you to fax more securely and reliably than email or traditional faxing. Now, you can send documents and files directly to your recipient using their fax number without allowing papers to be left around the fax machine. No need to make sure someone is waiting on the other end to collect the documents as soon as they print. Your electronic fax will sit securely until the recipient is ready to save, edit or print the information.

No need for additional equipment, paper or ink, too. Electronic faxing allows you to easily sign and resend documents right from your smartphone, tablet or desktop. Plus, your sent faxes can be held on file, ready for whenever you might need to access them again.
