As the Fax Machine Dies

Aug 23, 2007
Have you ever stopped to wonder how businesses ever functioned or operated without the use of the fax machine? Today this technology is so common in every workplace that it has in fact become a necessity. A business without a fax machine in today's world would be the equivalent of a middle-class family that does not use the telephone. Communication would be slow, at best, and any business attempting to forego this expense, would very quickly get lost in the crush of competition.

Today the fax machine isn't just a fax machine, and technology is expanding by the minute to bring newer communication methods into the business sector. The fax machine will in fact soon become as obsolete as the record turnstile. Why is this? Because the Internet has launched a global revolution that is making it possible for every organization to conduct every business activity online. That's right. Services and products are expanding at such lightening speed, that even something as simple as sending a fax can be accomplished via your desktop or laptop computer.

Online faxing is a means of using the Internet and your email and their corresponding attachments to send faxes to anyone in the world. Like an ISP, you have to open an account with an online fax service to get your fax number. Once you have installed the necessary software (note I did not say equipment) you can fax directly from your computer in the same manner as you would from your fax machine.

This mode of faxing is so revolutionary that many businesses have lapped it up. The convenience and simplicity that online faxes offer is being so highly appreciated that fax machines are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Moreover, many cellular phone providers are offering the same service so that you can use your cell phone as a hand-held wireless browser and send faxes from it. Imagine sitting in traffic stressing about a deadline. This stress could be eliminated if you fax your project over via your cellular device.

The advantages of online faxing are too obvious to ignore. Your business will no longer require the expense or bulk of an extra phone line. You no longer have to wait on hold signals, wrong numbers, or busy signals. The mobility of Internet faxing makes it extremely convenient and efficient. And ultimately, when you weight the costs of your fax machine and annual phone bills, Internet and online faxing is the most cost-effective fax solution for any business big or small.
