Press Release   •   Jul 10, 2013 07:11 EDT

Many members of a company often spend a lot of time dealing with fax communication issues and with fax equipment maintenance. If they could devote this time and attention instead to their core business, it would certainly help increase the company’s growth and profitability, and take the business to the next level. By adopting cloud-based B2B fax solutions businesses can automate fax communication right away. Moreover, they can choose flexible pay-as-you-go solutions which can be scaled up or down based on their changing requirements.

The basic benefits of using internet fax solutions for any business:

Your virtual fax number can accept multiple faxes at once, saving the sender time redialing when the fax machine is busy. Unlimited scale-on-demand means never worrying about exceeding maximum capacity. 

Online faxing performance reduces the stress with modern useful documentary communication.


According to some estimates, a big percent of faxes never reach their intended recipients or are accessed by unwanted people. The consequences of the wrong person receiving your fax could be serious. You could give away trade secrets, tip your hand about marketing plans, or even expose your business to legal action if, for example, an employee's confidential medical history goes to the wrong person.  Such potential problems mean businesses must take steps to ensure fax privacy. That's especially important for firms such as law offices, insurance agencies, medical institutions, financial structures or IT companies that frequently handle sensitive information. On a large scale, any company has confidential documents or secrets to protect.

An answer to this fax security challenge is safe Internet faxing, namely the registered fax feature patented and recently launched by Popfax.com. Even though any Internet fax service is much more secure than traditional faxing, due to online storage of faxes on secure servers and online fax transmission via highly secured HTTPS websites, the registered fax feature includes a legal document that guarantees both the fax delivery and its integrity.


Traditional faxes require the presence of a physical fax machine, whereas internet fax requires only an Internet-enabled computer or handheld device. The end result is that you can send and receive faxes from wherever you are at your own convenience without looking for a fax at post offices or paying fax fees at hotels.

The mobile fax website m.popfax.com is compatible with all smartphones on iOS, Blackberry or Android operating systems. It allows end-users to send and receive faxes instantly.
