Many bounce between whether on-premise or cloud-based services are best suited for enterprise fax. You may be first wondering what enterprise still even relies on fax in today’s modernized, digital era, but you’d be equally surprised to hear that fax remains a premium form of communication amongst enterprises across a multitude of sectors – many which you interact with.
This recent IDM article explains how “the exchange of documents by fax is still crucial in Purchase to Pay and Order to Cash processes for many large organizations,” and that “fax remains a leading choice for its capacity to confirm transmissions, handle large files, and dispense audit trials.”
Many still rely on faxing documents due to such things as legal properties and ubiquity, adds IDM. Faxing only appears outdated in the fact that traditional faxing services create a large amount of paper that can be very difficult to track and can therefore lead to an extensive list of associated issues.
Industries including healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and transportation depend on fax over IP services. This couldn’t be closer to the truth, either, where it was recently reported that fax remained the predominant form of communication among healthcare providers, with a tolled 63 percent of healthcare providers saying that they still regularly rely on fax services.
“The fax medium shows no signs of disappearing into the museum of obsolete telecommunications protocols like telex and the telegram,” says IDM. In other words, it’s just a matter of adapting to the times. This is where you have some important choices to make.
As mentioned above, many usually find themselves stuck between on-premise or cloud-based offerings, but when it comes down to it, cloud-based fax services are taking the industry by storm.
Consider FaxSIPit, a provider of cloud-based fax services, whose cloud-based service network serves as a proven IP-based fax network that works to successfully terminate all fax calls using a powerful combination of HTTPS and TDM technology, or what the company calls “a marriage of two extremely reliable forms of delivery.”
