The term ‘online fax’ was first used during the twilight of the year 1990 after MCI Mail’s “fax dispatch” service in 1988. It was a hosted service, and as was the case with most early commercial internet services at that time, the online fax availability was still slow and distasteful. However, more than a decade later, the internet has evolved into a universe of its own offering a diverse ecosystem that serves one and all with lightning speed and efficiency.
However, the internet fax for long walked on similar lines as the traditional fax. It still relied on a fax machine and was extremely taxing. Today when we talk about smart fax we think beyond sending and receiving documents. However, this was not the case even a few years ago.
While fax online is a welcome change from the perils of traditional fax but sending a fax from your computer still requires a dedicated internet connection. In simple words, online fax during its teething stage was more or less invisible fax machine. However, Xenfax offers a smart fax solution that fills the cracks in online faxing perfectly.
Here’s a table for comparison:
|The FAX Process||Online Fax||XenFax|
|Step 1||Attach fax document with email addressed to the recipient fax number.||No Scanning required,
Select the document directly from multiple channels, phone storage or cloud.
|Step 2||Internet Fax service provider translates the attachment in fax format to be readable by a fax machine.||Select single or multiple recipients on the free fax app and press the send button.|
|Step 3||The encoded document data is sent to the recipient over phone lines.||The recipient is notified about the fax automatically.|
|Step 4||The Fax Machine at the recipient end decodes the received data and prints the fax||The recipient receives the fax in his/her preferred communication channel.|
A closer look at each step would make you realize that the erstwhile online fax is actually an invisible traditional fax machine. There are good reasons to believe so, and the primary among these is speed and efficiency.
