Get your faxes delivered as emails straight to your inbox
Because FaxBox automatically converts each incoming fax to an email and delivers it to your inbox, you can collect your faxes from anywhere you can access your email. Sharing faxed information is as easy as forwarding the email on, and unlike forwarding a fax, the image quality is retained.
Delivery by email means that confidential documents will no longer be left lying on a fax machine, and you will avoid missing incoming faxes because your line is busy. Problems due to fading print and lost sheets of paper are a thing of the past, as with FaxBox documents faxed to you can be electronically saved in your computer.
- Faxes sent to you are automatically converted to Adobe PDF documents and sent as email attachments to your nominated email address.
- You can use your existing fax number for FaxBox, or we can provide a new number.
- FaxBox enables you to send emails to fax machines from your email inbox.
- Unique FaxBox numbers can be assigned to offices and departments to assist with cost management.
- There is no need for a dedicated fax line or fax advantage product.
