Without eFax you will have to deal with the following:

 

Fax sending is time intensive
Customers wishing to send documents such as invoices, statements, purchase orders, payment confirmations or marketing product information etc. as an faxes must; print them out, and then fax them individually and manually from a fax machine. If a fax sending fails, customers are required to start the process all over again.

Fax receiving is time intensive
Faxes received on a fax machine require regular trips to check whether they have arrived. In addition, where a fax machine is shared, often faxes go missing or get miss placed.

Reporting
Consolidated reports from a fax machine on the status of faxes sent (delivered, failed etc.) are very difficult to get.

Archiving
Because faxes are printed and manually sent, an electronic archive of all transactions (faxes sent and received) is not available. There is no audit trail on all inbound and outbound documents.

Concerns about moving over to 3Gi eFax

 

I don’t want get rid of my fax machine
Even if you keep your fax machine, the improved productivity from having fax sending and receiving at the desktop justifies the monthly cost.

I don’t want the additional monthly cost
Although there is a monthly cost, the saving outweighs the costs significantly.

I don’t send many faxes
Even more reason to get rid of the fax machine, and the monthly Telkom cost of line rental.

I share my voice line with my fax machine
This means that every time you receive or send a fax, a potential customer cannot reach you. Since a single page fax can take up to 5 minutes to send, this is critical down time.
