For ‘technophobic’ businesses moving to cloud fax can seem like a daunting task. For smaller businesses, perhaps without an IT department, or organizations in industries with complicated security compliance, such as healthcare, it’s easy to believe that moving to a cloud fax provider could be complicated and costly. Yet, with sfax, it couldn’t be easier!

All that cloud fax requires is a computer or mobile device with internet connectivity to send documents to another user, whether they use computer, tablet or smartphone. The immediately accessible nature of cloud fax means that whether you’re a solo practitioner working remotely, or a healthcare professional working across departments within a large organization, your documents are there when you need them.

Cloud fax has several advantages over traditional faxing methods. First and foremost, with sfax, it is an inherently secure method for sending sensitive information – unlike email. Thanks to a host of physical, organizational and the technical measures, you can rest assured that any personal data will remain secure. Check out our guide on 5 Tips for HIPAA compliant Faxing!

The process of moving to a cloud fax system is a simple. Following a short sign-up process users have access to a secure, password protected portal. Behind which is a control panel allowing users to view fax lines, manage contacts, access cover page templates and document libraries.
