Fax is Dead; Long Live Fax

Business Development Director
The humble fax continues to play a role in many industries, and for good reason. However, with digital transformation gaining pace, what happens to fax? We’ve taken it digital. Here we look at the role of fax and the benefits of Digital Fax for SAFEQ.

Fax is here to stay

Fax is a well trusted and relied upon method of communication. Usage ranges from the occasional faxing to heavy faxing (large healthcare facilities) but most are somewhere in between. Whether it is a doctor’s office faxing a lab order or a title company faxing real estate documents, it’s no surprise that faxing is not dead, long live fax.
Still, there are many problems and difficulties with traditional fax. Paper-based fax solutions are poor quality. They are also inefficient, environmentally unfriendly, and costly. In order to use fax, analog or VoIP lines must be installed into an MFD. All these difficulties create business pain points not to mention the potential for faxes to end up in the wrong hands which poses a data and compliance risk.

Goodbye analog: Hello digital

Digital transformation continues to dominate CIO conversations in the journey toward efficiency, productivity, and cost-effective solutions. Fax is far from forgotten. As part of digitization, communications methods must become more secure, reliable, and efficient. Saying goodbye to outdated fax machines or analog kits in the multifunction printer brings a wealth of benefits.
Using a digital fax service not only removes the need for cumbersome and expensive devices, analog/VoIP line management and complicated unsecure systems, but it combines powerful features with security, availability, and reliability. Taking fax digital meets the needs of the future. This is where YSoft SAFEQ Digital Fax comes in.
