Faxing has a bad name in a modern, digital world. Email, among other things, has had its part in destroying the fax machine, but most of us still need to send and receive them. While the machines are gathering dust faxing has evolved, and it’s easy and very cost effective.
You might be sitting there wondering who still needs to send faxes? Isn’t email good enough? The short answer is that no, in some cases, email isn’t the right choice for sending documents, for several reasons.
Sign, sealed, delivered.
In some sectors, particularly healthcare, finance and law, businesses are governed by strict compliance regulations regarding the protection of data. The signatures on faxed documents are treated the same as in-person signatures, while electronic signatures aren’t always accepted.
Another important security protocol under certain regulations is that when sending certain documents, the sender must have confirmation that the message was delivered successfully. This happens automatically happens when a fax is sent.
In short, for many businesses faxing is still a part of doing business, but that doesn’t mean they are doing it the same way they always have.
