Fax Solution

The number of email fax solutions available now seems a bit overwhelming. I had the opportunity this week to review some potential solutions. My choice was myfax. This was due to not only cost but also several other requirements.

What evaluation did I use to come to my decision?
First, is cost. How much is the monthly cost going to be? My decision isn't based solely on this alone but it is a major factor.
Second, what is support like? Is support easy to reach and available 24 hours?
Third, how many pages are included? Please be sure to note the number of pages incoming and outgoing. For my client, they would be sending a large number of faxes. Some other fax solutions only allowed 30 faxes to be sent on a monthly basis and this number was too small for our needs. Many of the solutions grant a total number of pages that can be any combination of send or receive. Just be sure to evaluate this carefully and see if it fits your organizational needs. Also note the overage costs as well.

The great news is that now there are more options than ever before. There are plently of cost effecient solutions out there. Do your homework and pick the best one that works for you.
