Even if you can’t get rid of faxes, you can get rid of your fax machine!
You’ll still have a fax number – you can keep the one you already have or choose one from our extensive inventory of national and international numbers – but you won’t need an actual fax machine or a fax line. That means you also don’t have any of the costs associated with fax machines – paper, toner, maintenance. You can even ditch that dedicated phone line. All you need is a computer or mobile device (and who doesn’t have one of those?), and an internet connection.
It’s NOT email, but it’s similar
eFax works in a similar way to email – you send and receive faxes over the internet with your phone or computer, using an app or website. So, just as you don’t need an ‘email machine’ to send and receive emails, you don’t need a fax machine to send and receive faxes. But people who send you faxes keep doing it with their fax machine, the same way they always have. And when you send them a fax, they receive it on their fax machine, just as they always have. Nothing changes at their end at all.
Keep your old fax number
Although FaxMate is all done over the internet (so it works with the nbn), you still have a normal fax number that people can fax to. In fact, you can keep your old number, if you have one.
No more busy signals
No matter how many faxes you receive, your customers will never get a busy signal. With eFax, you can receive virtually any number of faxes all at once – there’s no waiting in line.
Fax machine in your pocket
With FaxMate, you don’t have to be in the office to send a fax. You can fax from anywhere, at any time. At dinner, on the road, on the couch, at the cricket, in the dentist’s waiting room, on the train… It’s just as easy as sending an email. You can even sign documents on the go. So you’ll never miss an important deal again, just because you weren’t at your desk to close it.
One big problem with traditional fax machines is they’re not secure. Anyone walking past can read a fax that’s just come in (or worse still, take it). So you either have to put the fax machine in a secure room or assign someone to grab each fax the moment it comes through. With FaxMate, your faxes are sent directly to your email inbox.
Fax like you have never before. We mean it.
Sending a fax through your email account involves three easy steps. Your recipient(s) will receive the message on their fax machine shortly, just like had you sent the message from a traditional, physical fax machine.
