It may be safe to say that traditional fax machines have almost completely become a thing of past, whereas Internet faxing or e-faxing is gaining momentum, which lets users send and receive documents much more quickly and efficiently.
In light of this, FAXAGE, an Internet Fax service for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) has added direct Microsoft (News - Alert) Office integration for Office 2013 to its platform. Microsoft Office 2013 is a new version ofMicrosoft Office, which can be download and installed on any Windows 7 or 8 computer.
With the growing adaptation of advanced communications and Internet faxing, the importance of having the ability to integrate with existing applications has increased.
"We are excited to offer these features to our clients and potential clients," says in a statement Christian Watts of EC Data Systems - the parent company of the FAXAGE online fax service, "Our Microsoft Office integration capability allows us to further lower the learning curve and help our clients to become more productive more quickly."
Microsoft’s release of the Office 365 offering, FAXAGE expects an increase in customers utilizing the latest version of the Office suite.
Internet fax boasts unparalleled efficiency and cost advantages over traditional fax machines and in-house fax servers. Specifically, users can send and receive faxes from any location without leaving their desk - or without even needing to be physically present in the office.
FAXAGE can now integrate with the 'Internet Fax Service' feature found in Microsoft Office 2003 and above, which allows users to fax directly from these programs, using a familiar interface. Download and instructions for using this feature can be found on FAXAGE’s Sending Faxes with Microsoft Office page.
