VoIP Innovations Rolls Out New VoIP Uses
Don't let anyone tell you that the humble fax machine isn't still in use. While there are no shortage of communications tools out there, voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) increasingly found among these, the fax still has a place in everyday business operations. Yet faxes aren't just for fax machines these days, and VoIP Innovations (News - Alert) is rolling out new options for fax users on its network.
The VoIP Innovations network recently brought in new inbound and outbound fax service offerings, offering both fax to email as an inbound option, and email to fax as an outbound option. These are tools specifically designed for VoIP Innovations' reseller pools and Internet telephony service provider (ITSP) options, and for use with the company's session initiation protocol (SIP) network.
It also represents, at last report, a significant improvement over many competitors in the field, offering an email-to-fax service that has better than a 98 percent completion rating. Better yet, current reports call it both easy to understand and easy to use, which goes a long way toward making the service work for everyone who puts it to use.
Perhaps best of all, VoIP Innovations even put together two simple short videos that offers explanation on how to put the system to work. That ensures greater usability and will likely pull in some users who might not otherwise have stepped in. Getting access to the service is fairly simple; those already with VoIP Innovations need only sign into BackOffice and follow some simple instructions.
The fax isn't a lost art any more; far from it. Many still enjoy having hard copies of communications that can be kept on a physical desktop and referred back to as needed. For some, it's even better to have all of that routed into one stack of paper that can be addressed as needed, especially when a large portion of a work day is spent outside of the office. Great for outside sales reps, or those who work in the field—I used to work for a nursery stock provider in trees and seedlings, and many growers and landscapers liked fax for its more centralized nature—fax still has a place.
With VoIP Innovations' tools, meanwhile, fax can find its way into more users' hands and provide value even further. A couple simple tools can put a way to organize a day's communications into simple paper format, or stack it all into an email inbox. Such a system might well be a greater part of some organizations than expected, even those who aren't using fax all that much right now.
