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: 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.
