"Faxing is an ancient technology. It's older than the floppy disk. Our goal as a company is to let you fax with people who require it, while introducing you to alternatives, like online document signing." - Joseph Walla, HelloFax CEO
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
HelloFax today announced an integration with the newly released Google Drive™, Google's cloud storage and collaboration service. By integrating HelloFax with their Google Drive, people will never have to use a fax machine again.
Now people can fax any document from their Google Drive as well as sign any document or request an electronic signature.
Here’s how it works:
1. Send faxes directly from Google Drive:
Don't go to the copy store. Don't search for a fax machine. Don't race to work. Instead, send a fax from Google Drive.
2. Receive faxes directly in Google Drive:
Upon signup, a HelloFax folder is placed automatically in Google Drive, where all inbound faxes are automatically stored.
3. Sign documents directly from Google Drive:
Never print, sign and scan documents ever again. With this integration, users can edit PDF forms and sign documents, all in their browser.
“HelloFax is excited to be a Google Drive launch partner,” says Joseph Walla, HelloFax CEO. "Faxing is an ancient technology. It's older than the floppy disk. It’s a massive waste of paper and time. Our goal as a company is to let you fax with people who require it, while introducing you to alternatives, like online document signing. Hopefully, you’ll eventually be able to stop faxing for good. In the meantime, HelloFax’s integration with Google Drive will let you go paperless."
"We’re thrilled to have HelloFax integrating with Google Drive,” said Scott Johnston, Group Product Manager at Google. “Google Drive is designed to help people be more productive from anywhere, and HelloFax supports that goal by letting people easily sign and fax documents with just a few clicks.”
Since HelloFax has now removed the obstacles that keep many professionals from going completely paperless, the company is encouraging people to pledge to “go paperless.” As part of their effort to get people to go paperless, HelloFax is offering a Macbook Air and 1TB of storage from Google Drive to a randomly selected person who makes the paperless pledge.
