Ah, the fax. It’s a process we’ve all engaged in at least once in our lives (unless you’re a Millennial, more on that below), yet something we all seem to be unfamiliar with. Despite being a pretty straightforward task, it seems there’s still plenty of confusion over the general state of faxing today. Is it dead? Has it taken on new life forms? Do we really still even need it?
Encountering issues with fax over IP (FoIP)? You’re not alone. Although vastly more sophisticated than when it first emerged 30-40 years ago, it’s still common to run into difficulties when using VoIP technology. While it’s true that FoIP offers far more competitive advantages than downfalls, we’d be lying if we said users never have trouble seamlessly making an IP connection (after all, there’s no piece of technology today that’s faultless).
When you think of faxing, you may imagine the classic fax machine scene from the movie “Office Space.” You may envision the old multifunction printer your grandfather had in his home office. When we hear the word “fax,” we tend to think of things that are out fashioned; an interesting comparison considering the prevalence of fax today. Regardless of how seemingly irrelevant the fax may seem, research indicates that, on average, the world sends as many as 100 billion faxes per year.
