What was it Mark Twain said?
The recent email debacle in the NHS where the system was brought to its knees by careless users is further evidence to support the inescapable truth that the use of fax remains embedded in our processes for very good reasons.
Its demise is an exaggeration worthy of ridicule on a scale used by Mark Twain.*
It is the fax machine that is obsolete, not the use of fax as a process.
For instance, we know one of our large Banking clients has increased fax volumes from 25,000 fax pages per day in 2014, to 32,000 in 2015 and 48,000 in 2016.
While this begs the question ‘Why?’ – ours is not to reason why.
While we do not advocate the use of fax, we do offer our clients a genuinely viable fax exit strategy, a way of adopting paperless fax that will provide the functionality needed by users but also allow supporting IT and Telephony teams to eliminate obsolete technology as well as deploy a system that will endure until fax is truly no longer required.
Then and only then will its death not be an exaggeration.
The really good news is that the latest fax technology is not dependent upon some mythical and impractical cloud solution of which users are suspicious (especially in the public sector) but instead, exploits the most recent innovations in IP Telephony and virtualisation – a simple licensing exercise!
So, how can you take advantage of this?
If you or your colleagues are still using fax anywhere in your organisation and you answer yes, then tell us about it and we’ll do the rest.
