Five Ways eFax® Lets You Enjoy Summer Sunning and Keep Your Business RunningInternet fax service enables customers to enjoy a vacation without sacrificing ongoing productivity and access (July 07, 2011)
Faxes play an important role for your company to conduct business, but a fax machine won’t fit into your golf cart, beach bag, or carry-on when you need to get away from the office. eFax®, a branded service of j2 Global Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCOM) and an Internet fax to email service with 11 million customers worldwide, has solved this problem with a cloud-based, mobile way to fax.
In addition to sending and receiving faxes online, eFax offers many features and benefits that shave time off of administrative tasks, help reduce costs and get you outside faster. eFax encourages small businesses to incorporate these tips to improve the summer workday:
Tip No. 1: Keep a file cabinet in your beach bag.
eFax offers the ability to archive faxed documents online, providing remote access anytime, anywhere, for the lifetime of the account. Documents are digitally stored on secure file servers so they can be retrieved when needed, not just when you’re within reach of your "fax" file drawer in your office. In addition to bringing your office with you, it can be a lifesaver in a lost computer or crashed hard drive crisis. Your most important documents are safely preserved and easily accessed from whatever device travels with you.
Tip No. 2: Make time to smell the roses.
Similar to what Google does for the web, eFax can do for digital faxes. Rather than wasting daylight hours manually searching through file folders stuffed with contracts, forms and signed papers, you can search the contents of your faxes online by using specific names, topics, or other keywords to find a specific document or group of documents. This can drastically reduce the time it takes to find what you need.
Tip No. 3: Don’t get burned by large files.
Need to send or receive a file that’s too big to email? Don’t want the hassle or wait of overnight shipping either? eFax lets you reliably and securely upload and share files well over 25MB without email bounce-backs or failed send attempts. Instead of dealing with missed opportunities because your oversized audio, video or high-resolution photo is bigger than mail servers accept, send it using eFax® and get back to the beach (not the Business Center).
Tip No. 4: Hug a tree and sign documents without printing.
Printing outside the office can be a headache and expensive. eFax offers the ability to sign or annotate faxes online, without having to put pen to paper. Easily drag, drop, and resize your digitized signature onto your document; add text or dates, too. And if vacation has made your signature more relaxed and flowing than usual, eFax can apply your digitized signature with a transparent background so it doesn’t cover up any contents of the fax itself, layering seamlessly with a signature line or underlying text.
Tip No. 5: Avoid a bogey, bring your iPhone®.
Add the eFax iPhone app to your iPhone mobile digital device, and you can now have a fully-functioning virtual fax machine on the go. You can be out playing a round of golf and send or receive a deal-critical fax, without missing your turn to tee off. You can even snap a picture of your score sheet with your iPhone and fax it! Additionally, incoming or stored faxes can be easily viewed, searched, archived, or tagged right from your phone.
