Internet fax service providers reviewed.

By at 13 March, 2007, 9:43 am

My friends over at Technolawyer last week posted a useful link to a side-by-side review and comparison of a number of Internet-based fax services on Top Ten Reviews.   If you're in the market for an Internet-based fax service provider, this is a "must read" before making a selection.  Not only does the review provide a comparison of each product’s feature set, but also includes reviews of each service and pricing information.

These services can help with managing incoming faxes as they arrive in your e-mail inbox (generally in PDF format) so they can be saved with your other client documents without having to scan each one upon receipt.

By running optical character recognition on these files, they become searchable using desktop search engines such as Copernic, Google Desktop Search, Yahoo Desktop Search and others. If you have web access to your e-mail, this means your incoming faxes are available to you wherever you can access your e-mail; which can be a great convenience when you are out of the office.

These services can also make it extremely convenient to send faxes from your computer for those documents generated either by word processor or in PDF format. if you have created an image file of your signature, you can send signed documents this way as well.

The bottom line is that these services can aid you in managing your practice and the benefits that you can receive from using one of these services will quickly outweigh their expense.
