Fax? Does Anyone Still Use Fax?

ITBusinessEdge: Fax? Does Anyone Still Use Fax?

ITBusinessEdge hosts this free white paper from Equisys officially titled, ‘Unconventional Wisdom About Fax Communication.’ We think our title asks the questions the white paper begs.

“Although companies regularly use e-mail and other communication technologies for general
communication and collaboration, many continue to depend on the security, reliability, and
longevity of fax communications for sharing documents. This is particularly true for industries such
as health care and law because only faxed documents are accepted as electronic versions of legal,
binding contracts with signatures. In addition, some clients simply prefer the familiarity and ease
of faxing.

When using fax communications, companies can choose from a number of options for
implementing the technology, including the following: Fax Machines: Traditional fax machines and copiers/scanners with fax capabilities; Online Fax Services: Online services that enable users to send and receive faxes using email; Desktop Fax Software: Software that facilitates desktop faxing using a dedicated phone line; Network Fax Server Software: Server software that provides desktop faxing capabilities to all
users on a corporate network using one or more shared phone lines.”
