GFI Software has flipped the "on" switch for its new GFI FaxMaker Online offering--a cloud-based faxing solution that is part of the
GFI FaxMaker Online lets small businesses (or any company for that matter) send fax messages from any Internet-connected device independent of the hardware and without needing a dedicated phone line. The service sends and receives messages via any email client or service, regardless of whether it is hosted on-premises or in the cloud.
Here are some other feature highlights:
Print-to-fax support from within any application that has a printing option
Support for multiple document formats, including standard Office document, spreadsheet, or presentation files, as well as PDF, HTML, and text formats
An administration portal that keeps a record of who is using the service across multiple accounts or identities (if that is relevant).
Apparently, plenty of you still use faxes a lot. A survey conducted on behalf of GFI in October 2012 found that 85 percent of the more than 1,000 respondents use faxes in some capacity.
Pricing for the service starts at $12.75 per month, although there's currently a 30-day free trial of the service being offered. Each subscription comes with its own fax number.
