Faxing is an $80 billion market, and it continues to grow
Ottawa, (PRWEB) January 17, 2006
Despite the perception that we now live in an e-mail world, the use of faxes to conduct business continues to grow. To address these expenditures and other limitations of traditional faxing, Protus IP Solutions today announced the introduction of MyFax for corporate business users. MyFax, an internet fax service that allows business users to send and receive faxes using existing email accounts or the web, enables users to manage their fax communication and corresponding document management work flow more efficiently and at a lower cost than traditional fax servers or fax machines, regardless of physical location.
MyFax for corporations is an extension of the company’s extremely popular MyFax fax to email service for consumers, home offices, and small business offices. The corporate version, is designed to meet the needs of businesses in the financial, insurance, healthcare, real estate, and government sectors with large user deployments that send and receive thousands of faxes each month. Businesses can send, receive, store or forward faxes securely without fax machines, dedicated fax / phone lines, long distance phone charges or fax modems. Subscribers can access their fax communications from anywhere, at any time, the same way they access their e-mail.
With no hardware or software to install, business capital expenditures are reduced, with a savings of 85% on upfront costs and 34% on ongoing monthly costs versus a conventional fax server. MyFax provides on-demand capacity and scalability, enabling organizations to process high fax volume requirements at anytime of the day, with no need to provision extra lines for peak delivery periods.
MyFax also addresses security concerns brought on by legislation such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley, and Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Traditional fax machines often pose privacy and security threats as documents sit idle on shared fax machines. With MyFax, incoming faxes are sent directly to the intended recipient, ensuring confidentiality and helping organizations comply with privacy regulations.
“Faxing is an $80 billion market, and it continues to grow,” says Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP Solutions. “Yet today’s on-demand world, where corporations are looking for ways to support the increased mobility of their workforce while at the same time maintaining a high level of privacy and security, has created many new challenges. MyFax meets these business needs in ways that aren’t possible with traditional fax services, with the reliability and comfort of knowing you’re using one of the best-known brands in the business.”
