A traditional fax machine is run from a standard telephone line with an associated 01 or 02 number. The switch to a digital Fax to Email service is made by porting the number and allocating an email address to the number instead.
Historically, documents are scanned through a fax machine, with an image delivered and printed to a receiving fax machine. The Fax to Email service means that the receiving party collects the document in their email inbox (rather than printed out); saving on machine maintenance, ink, paper and space.
Any chosen email address can be used to receive a fax document. Using Fax to Email means that the email address (Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, GMX) can be added as the receiving address. Faxes are sent as an image file which is delivered as an email with an attached .jpeg or .png file.
A high number of organisations across the UK are still utilising fax machines to send and receive scanned documents. Fax machines are attached to a landline number, this number can be ported into the cloud meaning that any future scanned documents will arrive to a chosen email inbox.
Fax to email is the modern way to fax! Receive faxes via any active email account to enabling access to the document anywhere from any device. The service offers added security as now all faxed documents will be stored online and is environmentally friendly!
That large grey box in the corner can be scrapped and replaced with a clean and empty space. Faxes are no longer tied down to the office fax machine, so you can receive faxes anywhere in the world, from any internet connection! Your business already uses email, we simply route faxes to your given email address which arrive in a digital image format.
