Fax2Mail

Make faxing as fast and easy as email

The ability to send and receive faxes still remains an important part of day-to-day business for small and medium-sized companies across many sectors.

But traditional, paper-based faxing can present a host of problems. Fax machines can be expensive to maintain and replace. They can also become a bottleneck for your business. Sending and receiving faxes and can be painfully slow, racking up phone bills and wasting time for everyone. Paper-based faxing is also insecure. Sensitive information may be seen by someone other than the recipient.

Fax2Mail provides the solution. It is an email-based alternative to the fax machine. The service makes faxing as easy as email, through seamless integration with your email client. Your employees can send, receive, save and forward faxes in moments – just like emails - whether in the office or working remotely.

Employees can use their time more productively. It only takes a few clicks to send multiple faxes from their desktops – so important documents can be received at Internet speed. You can add attachments from popular office applications too. There is no need to wait hours for pages to print and then be faxed. Just click and go.

To send faxes, users create a new message within their email client. The recipient’s fax telephone number then becomes part of the destination email address. Users simply click ‘Send’. Fax2Mail will turn the email back into a fax and send it to the recipient’s fax machine.

When Fax2Mail users receive faxes, these appear in their email inbox as messages with PDF/TIFF attachments.

Fax2Mail has an intuitive and secure web-based tool allows users to manage and track their faxes. The same tool can also be used by administrators to easily manage user on-boarding and permissions. The Fax2Mail Mobile option also enables companies to extend the service to remotely-based employees – so they can print or fax documents and attachments from any location using a mobile device.

Strengthening security and compliance, Fax2Mail uses industry-standard 128-bit encryption for sent and received files. The faxes you receive will also arrive securely on the PC of the intended recipient, rather than on a fax machine somewhere else in the building. There is real-time reporting and an audit trail exists for every inbound and outbound fax delivered. Electronic copies of faxes can also be retained.
