The eFax Mobile App: A Quick and Efficient Way to Fax

Insurance companies must send and receive documents for internal use and to communicate with businesses and customers. There’s nothing more frustrating than dealing with fax machine wait times, printer jams, and busy signals. With the eFax mobile app, employees can send and receive important documents directly from their smartphone or tablet.

 

Mobile App

You can use any mobile device to send, receive, or edit fax documents. All you need is the eFax iOS or Android mobile app.

 

Annotation

Eliminate the need to print, sign and scan confidential customer forms by annotating them within the eFax mobile app instead. Whenever you need to include an explanation or comment within your fax documents, the eFax mobile app’s annotation feature enables you to do so.

 

Document Signature
Sign documents using the Electronic Signature feature by swiping a finger across a mobile device screen or uploading a picture of a handwritten signature using a smartphone. With a few taps of a finger, the fax will be on its way.

eFax: A Paperless Faxing Solution

Did you know the world currently consumes 416 metric tons of paper and paperboard? Paper is responsible for 26% of all waste deposited in landfills? The insurance industry certainly contributes more than its fair share. After all, only 40% of the industry has adopted digital technology, while the rest rely on paperwork to conduct business.

An online faxing solution like eFax can help reduce your paper usage.

Insurance companies can improve efficiency by faxing the required documentation digitally, whenever and wherever required. eFax enables your employees to fax paperwork using several electronic methods:

And unlike traditional faxing, which requires you to be within the vicinity of a fax machine and have paper available for transmission, eFax is location-independent. There’s no delay when you are required to respond quickly to customer queries.

Keep Your Company Information Confidential

Data security has become a matter of increasing concern for many customers. Research shows that 81% of people believe the risks associated with a companies’ data collection efforts are far greater than the benefits. In addition, 79% of Americans worry about how companies are using their data.
Insurance companies regularly transmit confidential documents via fax, including coverage information, data records, and personal information. By switching to online fax, you eliminate the risk that confidential documents will sit unattended at a fax machine.
Fax transmissions are also more secure and difficult to hack than email due to their encrypted nature. Because insurance companies deal with confidential information frequently and must ensure that customer information is protected, they should invest in the most efficient online fax technology.

Improve Organization

Insurance companies deal with a lot of customers, and therefore a lot of information. Lengthy records from multiple different customers often need to be sent to other parties and the customers themselves. eFax helps insurance companies organize this information through a variety of helpful features.
