Fax-over-IP (FoIP) takes tried-and-true fax technology and adapts it to the modern age by moving transmission over the Internet. That’s a fancy way of saying it’s time to retire that old fax machine!
The obvious advantage of Metropark’s Voice Exchange FAXBOXES, compared to traditional analog faxing, is that we save you a ton of money. Since faxes no longer need a dedicated (and high priced $$) analog fax line for transmission, when you switch to MPVEX Faxboxes, your costs are drastically lower!
Your Fax Line = $60 per month
MPVEX Fax = $6 per month (That’s a 90% savings! WOW!!)
Still, many businesses are not convinced that the cost advantage of moving from their existing fax setup to FoIP is worth the time and effort. With that in mind, here are five reasons why MPVEX Fax makes sense — above and beyond the cost savings.
With everyone using their smartphones or tablets today, your business staff can now receive and send faxes from their mobile devices using MPVEX Faxboxes.
With MPVEX Fax, faxes can automatically be routed to the appropriate person’s email inbox. This avoids the ‘missing fax’ situation entirely.
Indexing and OCR
With traditional fax, information is locked up in the paper it is printed on. Unlike a Word or PDF file, you cannot search a fax with your computer. With MPVEX Fax sending a PDF to your inbox, your fax becomes automatically searchable through indexing or OCR (Optical Character Recognition). There is no scanning necessary and no hassle to worry about.
With MPVEX Fax, you can add additional layers of security to the faxing process. No more plain paper sitting on a machine in your common area for all to see. You can also deploy a Secure Socket Layer SSL HTTPS, which is the same encryption used for online banking.
Your email, voicemail, and work documents are all unified on your desktop or tablet, but your faxes are located on a piece of paper some place else. MPVEX Fax now unifies your faxes with all of your other day-to-day workflow.
So, even if saving money isn’t enough to move to Fax-over-IP, there are plenty of other reasons why you should consider MPVEX Faxboxes!
