A question we are often asked is “What are fax to email numbers?” Well, you use one in exactly the same way as you would any other fax number, but instead of receiving faxes on paper through a fax machine, you get them sent straight to your email inbox, just as you would an email.
It can be 0800, 0845 numbers, 0844, virtual or any of our other numbers. If you have one of these phone numbers with us then it is ideal to get a fax to email number with the same prefix so that they match.
There are a huge number of benefits to fax to email numbers. The key one is the obvious benefit to the environment. Fax to email saves huge amounts of paper, as you only print out faxes that you need printed. It also saves electricity, as fax machines are notoriously costly as you have to leave them switched on all day and all night.
It is also a huge financial saving, as you don’t need to buy a new (or replace your old) fax machine, plus it saves the costs of ink, toner, paper, and electricity. There is also the organisational time it saves, as you don’t need to keep going to check the fax machine, and you don’t need to worry about filing faxes, you can just store them in the relevant locations on your computer. All in all it is highly efficient.
