What is Hosted Fax?

Faxes anytime, anywhere, and from any device

Hosted Fax turns your email into a fax machine. Now you can send and receive faxes from anywhere, and from any device, that supports email. It requires no special software, and no complicated setup.

While so much business is conducted over email, many industries still rely on the fax machine. With a traditional fax machine, this means spending money on ink, paper, and a dedicated phone line. It also means you're tied to one location any time you need to wait for a fax to come in, or need to send one. Stop wasting time and money with a traditional fax machine or fax server.

Benefits of Hosted Faxing

  • No special hardware such as a fax server or fax machine to buy and maintain
  • As easy to use as email
  • Receives faxes directly and confidentially
  • Document quality doesn't suffer with each faxing
  • Environmentally friendly

How it works

Now when you receive a fax, we'll turn it into a PDF and send it to an email address you specify. This can be your direct email address, an internal mailing list or even an address that goes into a ticketing system like Salesforce or Zendesk.

Sending a fax is just as easy. Simply create a new email, attach the document you want to fax, and click send. We'll send you a confirmation that we got your email, and a second confirmation once the fax is successfully sent.

You can attach almost any file you want to send. Supported formats include Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Visio documents, common image formats like TIF, GIF, and JPG, text documents such as TXT or RTF files, and of course PDF.

Hosted Faxing is available as a part of our Hosted PBX solution, VoicePulse for Business.
