How Does Fax Forwarding Work?

The Fax to Email feature sends faxes to your emailor multiple addressesso that users can view them on any device, including a smartphone. With this feature, you don’t have to be in your office to receive important faxes from your business client.

Simply forward these faxes using the same toll free number that receives incoming voice calls.  Your fax documents are emailed and stored in your online account safely and can be saved to your PC  or viewed as a .pdf or .tiff file, on both your PC and mobile devices. This feature makes receiving faxes from customers and clients easier and more convenient.

Furthermore, outgoing fax documents are transmitted over an encrypted connection. For increased security, to ensure these files are not viewed by others, you can also make them password-protected. Therefore, viewers will have to insert the necessary password to view these email files in .pdf or .tiff formats.

In addition to receiving faxes on your email account, this feature also gives you the option to forward these emails to other email addresses. This can truly help you improve your business efficiency.

For example: You are an entrepreneur traveling for business and waiting for your client to send business approval and order requirements via fax. If you are not in your office and it will take days for you to return and view the fax, there are chances that the client may cancel the order especially if they need the order to be delivered on an urgent basis. In this situation, forwarding faxes to your email can be quite useful. You can receive and view the fax sent by your client on your smartphone when you are out of town and follow up with the client efficiently.

Benefits of the Fax to Email Feature

Fax to email offers a plethora of benefits to users. Here are the benefits offered by the fax to email feature:

1. Receive an Electronic Version of Your Fax Documents

This faxing feature enables users to have an electronic version of faxes received on fax machines. The faxes received are sent to your designated email account using the same toll free number where you receive incoming voice calls.

For example, if you know an important fax from a client is about to arrive but need to be out of the office, then you can receive an electronic version of the fax on your smartphone through your email.

2. Save Faxes on Your PC or Cloud

Since the fax documents are transformed into electronic versions, you can save faxes on your PC or cloud storage, eliminating the need to scan your faxes.

3. Comes with Enhanced Security

To ensure confidential faxes are not viewed and opened by random people who might sometimes view your PC in your absence, you can encrypt and make them password-protected once saved on the PC.

4. Improves Business Productivity

By receiving important faxes in your email, you can view them on-the-go and forward them to other email addresses without any delay. This can significantly improve your business productivity.
