Benefits of Fax over IP

We love fax over IP, and we’re pretty sure you do too. Your customers, though? Sometimes they need some convincing. Switching to a different technology may rock their world a little bit. However, when they make the switch, they’ll begin to see plenty of both hard and soft benefits. To help get them interested, give them a little taste of what’s to come when they start using FoIP:

Network consolidation

FoIP streamlines your customers’ communications by consolidating their faxing and their other data to one network. Because they’ll no longer need a phone line (as long as their telephone system is VoIP, too), they’ll pay lower monthly fees for all forms of communication.

Lower costs

And that brings us to the next benefit of fax over IP–your FoIP customers will save money, not only because they’ve consolidated networks, but also because they’ll have less hardware to purchase or maintain. Their operating costs will decrease overall.

Increased productivity

Now instead of having to get up and walk to the fax machine, dial a number, and send the fax, your customers and their employees can send faxes straight from their desktops. Any document that can be emailed can also be faxed from their computer either through email or through special faxing software. They’ll also be able to fax multiple documents or fax to multiple parties at one time instead of individually inputting recipient numbers into the fax machine.

Increased flexibility

FoIP provides better flexibility for your customers. It doesn’t matter if they’re across the globe on a beach vacation or sitting in their office. As long as they have an internet connection and email capability, they’ll be able to fax. FoIP allows faxing from any device that can send and receive emails, so they’ll be able to fax from their smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Increased confidentiality and security

When they switch to FoIP, customers and their employees will be assigned secure fax numbers that deliver directly to their email inbox. FoIP protects their confidential information from being seen by multiple coworkers on the fax machine. It allows them to send and receive confidential or important documents without worrying who will see them. They can then either choose to save the fax in a secure location or print a hard copy.

Conclusion

FoIP takes faxing to a whole new level. Your customers will still have all the benefits of traditional faxing but without the headaches.
