One of the great things about the latest software is that you can now receive faxes in your email inbox. You will receive standard fax numbers Australia offers, so that other people don't even realize you will be receiving their fax electronically, not that it should matter to them. It is very easy to use a dedicated online fax number, meaning that every fax number that is sent by someone, either through a conventional fax or through another online service, arrives in your email inbox without any troubles.
There are various Australian fax number plans available and you do have to take the time to find out which one best suits your needs. Certain plans only allow you to send faxes, others only allow you to receive, and others allow both. You also need to look into how many faxes you can send and receive so that you don't have to pay extra by going over your allowance. However, with a little bit of research, you should be able to save quite a bit of money (since you no longer have to pay for toner, paper, servicing and the phone line), as well as time.
With a good package, you should not have to install any software. Furthermore, good Australian fax number plans will not require you to sign up for a long term contract, instead allowing you to leave the package as and when you want. Any fax that is sent will be received in your email inbox as an attachment. You will receive a dedicated fax number in Australia, making it look as if you have a physical fax. Because it is an electronic system that arrives at your email inbox, you can access your faxes from any location that has internet access, from any device that is able to receive emails. So, your tablet, your smartphone, your BlackBerry, iPhone, laptop or computer will all work.
Firstly, you receive a real fax number. This is a dedicated number with an Australian area code, for your use only. Most service providers will allow you to choose from a range of different area codes as well, so it matches with your geographical location. All you need to do is select the area code, and the service provider will allow you to select the rest of your number. There are also a few providers that allow you to use the fax number you already have, albeit at a small additional cost.
Because of these services, you are able to free up the telephone line you currently have, potentially allowing to cancel it altogether and save on your communications budget. When your fax comes through your email service rather than a physical fax machine, you can use the existing line for anything like outbound calls, internet access or anything else.
One of the greatest benefits is that you have more flexibility and more confidentiality available. It has happened regularly that a confidential fax has been read by someone who should not have read it, whether accidentally or on purpose. Besides the fact that it is confidential, it is also very flexible in as such that you are able to access your email from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and a suitable device (like a smartphone, iPhone, BlackBerry, tablet, laptop or PC).
Also, there is no way you can ever miss a fax again. This is something that regularly happens with physical fax machines, particularly early on the morning. As staff comes in, they are faced with piles upon piles of spam faxes, advertising new insurance packages or other unnecessary products. It is all too easy to miss that one sheet of paper that was important, and accidentally throw it away. Even if you were to move, this issue no longer happens with an electronic fax. As soon as you move, your fax can move with you. The only difference is that if you want to use your area code after a move, in which case you do have to tell your clients that you have a new number.
