From time to time, we have customers ditching there all-in-one-printers for a smaller printer. Then, they realize that they cannot fax any longer. No reason to fret. There are plenty of ways to fax without a bulky all-in-one printer.
The best one I’ve tested and use happily is MyFax. Yes, eFax is well known, but MyFax is cheaper and works just as well, if not better. In case you’re wondering what it does, it allows you to receive faxes to your email account. This is great because you can easily manage it in your Outlook or other email client versus worrying about messy fax papers. Also, you can email an attachment or regularly drafted email as a fax. For instance, you would email the fax number + @myfax.com, or such as [email protected] and it will show up with a header, body, and your attachment would show up as a regular fax would. So, it cannot even be deciphered as an electronic fax, but a real one.
Another great reason to use the electronic fax is that you’re not pinned down to your computer network office. In our virtual world, it’s great to be able to access incoming faxes anywhere. This gives you that option. You can also easily send faxes via iPhone support, Blackberry, Android, or other devices.
As per price, MyFax is $10/month for 100 sent pages and 200 received. It’s $16/month for eFax and capacity is only at 30 sent pages and 130 received. So, based on price and technical service, MyFax is the clear winner, and definitely recommended.
Update: After posting the initial blog, I’ve been contacted by the Marketing department of eFax. Their rep has informed me my price listed is outdated. Instead of it being $16/month for 30 pages sent and 130 received, it is currently $16.95 for 150 pages sent and 150 pages received. That extra 95 cents gets you a lot more pages sent out. Plus, I was informed to make note that eFax also has a lifetime storage of all your faxes and links with iPhones and Androids for apps. There’s also a large sharing service and free toll-free number. Good stuff, but if you just want a good fax service, I’m still leaning towards on MyFax on this one due to the cheaper pricing. But, if you want some added features, you may also want to check out MyFax to do your due diligence.
