Faxing is an inevitable part of business communications. While traditional fax has been around for what feels like longer than we can remember, cloud computing has recently been gathering momentum to make online fax solutions a very popular alternative that are less time consuming, more cost-efficient and overall more convenient for business operations.
Using this to its advantage, GFI Software has introduced its FaxMaker Online subscription model that allows instant access and easily scales to meet any organization – but specifically, small- to medium-sized business’ (SMBs’) faxing needs, enabling both fax-to-e-mail and e-mail-to-fax communications almost as soon as users signup, noted officials.
Every subscription comes with its own fax number, with additional numbers available for purchase as required. Users can add or cancel subscriptions and also access the transaction history.
With no dedicated lines, no hardware or software required and faxing possible from any Internet- connected device, anywhere, anytime, FaxMaker online unshackles businesses from the confines of traditional faxing while eliminating potential security problems typically associated with paper faxing.
The ubiquity of faxing was brought to light in an independent blind survey of 1,008 office workers conducted by Opinion Matters on behalf of GFI Software in October 2012, where almost 85 percent of respondents claimed that they used faxing in some capacity. Additionally, almost half of the respondents admitted that they peeked into other peoples’ faxes.
However, with GFI's FaxMaker, key industries can rest assured that their fax communications meet security and compliance regulations. It also offers SMBs substantial cost savings, efficiency gains and flexibility for unparalleled fax transmission and receiving.
Apart from its ability to send and receive faxes from any e-mail client or e-mail server, FaxMaker can also convert incoming faxes to a PDF file and attach it to an e-mail, which is sent directly to the user. In addition, while sending faxes, it supports multiple e-mail-to-fax formats.
“Just as important, FaxMaker Online seamlessly integrates with today's 'e-mail-based' workflow, reinforcing a company's overall communications platform,” noted Phil Bousfield, general manager, infrastructure business unit at GFI.
Even more, its print-to-fax functionality allows printing to fax from any application that is capable of printing, and its easy-to-use administrative portal allows accounts to be managed across an array of departments and users.
Available now for as little as $12.75 a month with packages to suit the pockets of any sized business, GFI is offering a free, 30-day trial of its GFI FaxMaker Online.
In other recent news, the company also launched GFI ThreatTrack 2.0, the latest version of its proven security intelligence solution that provides users with deep visibility into the threat landscape.
