The fax machine is one technology that is past its time, but refuses to die. Some people like the convenience of the fax, while others perceive a fax to be more secure than e-mail. Doctors’ offices rely on fax and refuse to use e-mail because of the security concerns.
After hoping to be rid of faxes forever, I came to the realization that they’re here for the foreseeable future. I signed up for HelloFax and have been quite satisfied with the customer service and the convenience of it thus far. I was able to get a fax number in the 646 area code, and it integrates well with Dropbox. It also lets you easily add a saved signature to a document without printing it out, signing it, and then scanning it before sending it. Thumbs up from me.
