A very influential quote, for business in particular, comes from Grace Hopper, a U.S. Naval officer, and pioneer of computer science:

Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, “We’ve always done it this way.” I try to fight that.

Reflecting on the significance of change, these poignant words from Hopper are an eloquent reminder for modern day businesses to embrace new ways of working. Advances in technology have revolutionized the way in which people and organizations are capable of working, motivating businesses to adapt so they don’t fall behind.

Traditionally, faxing important or sensitive documents has depended on access to the office fax machine. As a conventional piece of equipment, the clunky and cumbersome fax machine has long been the expectation. In short, professionals have always sent documents that way.

Cloud fax or internet fax however, presents a new, superior way of working. Here are five ways in which cloud fax can change your business.

1 – Straightforward costs

It’s simple, you pay for what you use. At Sfax we only charge for successfully delivered faxes, which means no unexpected fees for unsuccessful faxes, partial faxes, odd pages or retries. What’s more, you can avoid ongoing maintenance costs for servicing, paper and ink. Save time and money by choosing monthly or yearly plans that scale easily, so you can focus on what really matters.

2 – Forget the four walls

Cloud fax allows you to send and receive faxes outside of the office environment. With the ability to digitally annotate and sign documents on-the-go via a laptop, tablet or smartphone, the office can be wherever you are.

3 – Remote collaboration

Efficiently transfer documents in a matter of moments. Cloud fax makes it possible to manage contacts, and make sure the right document gets to the right person, at the right time.

4 – 24/7 access

The days of 9 to 5 are gone. Employees work longer hours and from multiple locations. As long as they have internet access, Sfax can be used anywhere, anytime.

5 – Security

Automatic updates together with physical, organizational and technical measures mean that with cloud fax you can be confident that data is protected. Strong, 256-bit SSL security and AES algorithms ensure the highest level of security for your business and those around you.
