Current restrictions are forcing millions of small businesses to operate remotely, making the need to remain connected with customers and staff more important than ever. With access to traditional business tools limited, savvy small business owners are seeing the pandemic as a catalyst to ditch the analogue fax machine and adopt a pay as you go digital solution.
Why it’s time to go digital
Today’s small business owners want a fax service without the upfront costs associated with capital equipment that come with buying a fax machine, a fax number with line rental fees and consumables like paper and toner.
In fact most types of businesses only need a fax machine to send or receive the odd fax from a third party. It’s critical because the other party will mandate they can only fax and email is not an option due to the legality and compliant nature of the document being sent or received.
Being attached to a physical phone line means you are also limited to receiving one fax at a time. A cloud fax solution is never busy, always online and allows you to receive multiple faxes quickly and easily straight to your device.
A cloud fax increases productivity and ensures you don’t run the risk of missing legitimate faxes from genuine clients or suppliers. Cloud technology like FaxMate help’s small business communicate on the go, close deals faster and access faxes from anywhere in the world.
Small business need to communicate on the go, working remotely from their homes, cafes or a virtual office space, and transition between all three spaces with ease.
And if being ‘on the go’ is critical to your business it’s definitely time you junked your traditional fax machine. These analogue machines are incompatible with the digital-only NBN. There are a few workarounds that are available, but it’s costly to retrofit.
For a small business, cost savings is a high priority due to limited cash flow, and the importance of diverting funds to where it makes maximum revenue is key.
