Email to fax technology has been a huge step forward in the World of faxing.  Not only you can send and receive digital faxes in just a matter of moments, but services now also provide features that were impossible to have with traditional faxing machines due to technical limitations.

The truth is, these features have become very important now that we have to cut our times and increase productivity. As a matter of fact, many businesses simply cannot go on without them; let’s take a look at the favorite online fax features!

Fax broadcasting.  Sending a single fax to multiple recipients was not as easy as it sounds when you were using a fax machine. For the most part it required dialing over and over again the numbers, waiting for the tone and finally sending the fax.  With email to fax technology things are much easier, just add all the recipients numbers on the Cc field of your “compose” window and the service will deliver one by one, once it has finished you will receive a delivery report.

You can also do the same when forwarding faxes.  Make sure to refer to your preferred service’s online FAQ for more information on how to send a fax to multiple recipients.

Fax scheduling.  Remember those days when you HAD to be on the office at a specific time just to send a fax? Well with fax scheduling you can just simply set the time and date of your choice and forget about it; like always, at the end you will receive a detailed delivery report. The only downside about scheduling right now is that you can’t do it directly from Gmail, but instead you have to log in to your online fax dashboard.  It’s nothing too of a hassle though, besides, faxes are scheduled only once in a while. Visit our guide to learn more about sending faxes online.

Mobile integration.  This is one of the favorite features fax services have added in the past two years.  Thanks to smartphone technology and the development of mobile apps, now you can just simply use your iPhone or Android phone and receive instant notifications of incoming faxes. Some new fax apps have also started adding the possibility to compose and send faxes, either by typing the content directly or by taking a picture of a printed document or photo you want to fax.   The app not only sends the file but it also optimizes it to ensure it is easy to read.

Virtual fax numbers. Without this feature, online faxing would be incomplete.  These free fax numbers act as dedicated fax lines that grab all incoming faxes and send them to powerful servers, where they are converted into digital files. Virtual numbers are easy to get and come included in nearly all fax services plans out there, you can even choose between local and toll-free numbers and are available in different countries as well. The best about these numbers is that they are ready to be used in just a matter of minutes.

As you can see these are very useful features that can save you a lot of time as well as money.  We have added here only the favorite ones among online fax users, but services are always adding more and improving existing ones, especially in the case of leading companies such as RingCentral Fax or eFax. These features can be tested for free with some services, it would be a worthy idea to create free trial account before starting paying for a plan.
