Faxing has been a critical component of enterprise communication for decades. However, traditional fax machines can be costly and not practical for certain businesses, as they require paper, toner, and phone lines. For these reasons, companies are looking to the cloud for a more cost-effective solution.
Here are some signs that your business should make the move to cloud fax, the security benefits of cloud faxing, and an example of how Fenestrae can help you transition to the cloud.
Signs Your Business Should Make the Move to Cloud Faxing
Limited Administrative Staff
One significant sign that your business should make the move to cloud faxing is if you have limited administrative staff. Traditional fax machines require manual tasks, such as replacing toner and paper and routing incoming faxes. With cloud faxing, these tasks are automated, which frees up time for administrative staff.
Physical Hardware Challenges
If you want to reduce your hardware footprint, cloud faxing can be a great solution. Traditional fax machines require dedicated physical space in your office, while cloud faxing is entirely virtual. This can save your business in terms of physical space and associated costs of space rental.
Telephony Handled by Cloud Provider
If your business infrastructure uses a VoIP provider for telephony, cloud faxing is an excellent choice. Traditional fax machines rely on standard phone lines for data transmission. In contrast, cloud faxing converts data into packets that can be transmitted over the internet. This means you can eliminate the need for separate phone lines dedicated to faxing, resulting in cost savings.
Cloud faxing accommodates the modern, agile work style many businesses are adopting, making it easier to work remotely or on the go. High availability is another draw to cloud faxing. Traditional fax machines can be affected by network outages, power failures, or equipment malfunctioning. Cloud faxing offers redundancy and failover capabilities, ensuring your faxes get through.
