What is the difference between RingCentral and eFax?

Dedicated focus

Dedicated focus: RingCentral offers businesses several communications products, from voice services to faxing. Customers can select faxing as an individual service or part of a package. eFax specializes in offering a robust fax solution that involves ingoing and outgoing fax management, advanced productivity features like digitized signatures, and unlimited fax storage.

Electronic signing and management

Electronic signing and management: RingCentral doesn’t currently offer the ability to sign or edit received faxes. eFax users have access to digital signature technology, including the ability to add their signature and annotate faxes. This eliminates several steps — such as printing, signing, scanning, and storing physical documents.

Storage

Storage: RingCentral stores up to 200 faxes in customers’ online inboxes. eFax offers unlimited fax storage and the ability to save faxes in encrypted file formats.

Customer Support

Customer Support: RingCentral offers 24/7 support through phone and a ticketing system. However, phone support is not available for its most economical plan. eFax offers all customers — regardless of subscription tier — 24/7 support options including phone, email, and chat for maximum flexibility.

All eFax customers have access to support agents who are reachable 24/7 via phone, email, or chat. Users who need a basic plan or want consistent service options, whether they scale up or down, can appreciate having access to eFax’s phone support.

Electronic Signature: Customers who are always on the go are increasingly looking for the ability to sign faxes from any device, whether it’s to close a deal or authorize a purchase order. RingCentral doesn’t currently offer digital fax signing features. eFax allows users to send and receive faxes from any device. In addition, customers can annotate, sign, and return faxes from within the eFax mobile app.

Customization: RingCentral offers many fax features that standard users need. eFax allows users to take advantage of features such as changing transmission speed, updating reference information, and support for more than 50 file formats.
