Whether an organization is a money-making enterprise, not-for-profit, or Government body, clear and rapid communication is vital. Although Sfax was designed from the ground up to meet the HIPAA compliance and privacy requirements of healthcare professionals, it has been embraced by a breadth range of industries from healthcare to legal, retail, government and education.

The features and accessibility of Sfax is universal, and as such is beneficial to numerous institutions including primary schools, middle and high schools, graduate schools, and colleges. The day-to-day running and efficiency of these organizations is dependent on the sending and receiving of important and sensitive information – often involving exchanging details regarding minors – and Sfax is ideally equipped for this.

The FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 1974) is a federal law in the US. It rules that any educational institutions which receive funding through US department of Education programs must allow students access to their education records. This provides an opportunity for students to request amendments of their records and protect the privacy of them. As such any institutions found to be in violation of FERPA may face the withdrawal of funding.

Confidential student records may be exposed to unauthorized access if educational institutions use manual, paper-based traditional faxing. With the frequent transmission of confidential documents such as admission forms, authorizations, change orders, finance forms and grant and loan applications, the need for a secure and reliable faxing service is paramount.

Sfax provides these educational institutions with security, reliability, and therefore peace of mind that sensitive information is secure. This mitigates the risk of potential litigation, saving establishments considerable money.

With secure online fax solution Sfax, the need for paper and traditional fax systems is removed. Institutions and offices will be able to streamline their workflow, greatly improving the speed, efficiency, and security of work when transmitting documents is a regular part of day-to-day life.
