Welcome to the future: sending a fax from Mac iOS.
Fortunately, these pieces of hardware needn’t share the same space. Fax machines have remained in business culture for many years now because fax is such an important method of communication, but you don’t need a fax machine to fax anymore.
In the digital age, you can send a fax from Mac computers.
Cloud fax is a revolutionary technology that, much like Apple, has changed the way we communicate.
A digital alternative to fax, cloud fax allows businesses to easily send fax online from Mac and iOS devices without the need for a fax machine. As the name “cloud” implies, the service is entirely online. Digital fax documents are transmitted over the internet, sent through Mac computers.
Cloud fax takes the essential communication tool that is fax, merges it with Mac technology and removes the need for fax machines altogether. But cloud fax is more than just a simple fax machine replacement. The technology enhances your fax experience.
Fax machines are famously archaic. They are limited in their design, highly inflexible and are known to have a range of functionality issues, from errors to security flaws. You can’t use fax machines for remote work. They aren't compliant with data protection laws like GDPR, and their affinity for technical issues is nothing short of legendary. Yes, they let you send faxes, but they come with a host of nightmare problems nobody wants to deal with.
The same cannot be said of faxing from a Mac with an online fax service.
Yes, Macs can also send faxes, but that is where the similarities end. Macs are fast, flexible and built to meet the demands of our modern world. They offer security, keep data secure and easily support remote work lifestyles. The benefits of using a Mac to send your fax are seemingly endless, but a few key advantages are:
However, these are far from the only advantages you’ll see. Faxing from a Mac has its benefits, but upgrading to cloud fax also has its own rewards:
When you fax using iOS devices, you not only get the advantages of Mac, but you access the business-boosting benefits of cloud fax.
Mac iOS is famed for two things: being the brainchild of Steve Jobs and for being very easy to use. Apple products have risen to their dizzying heights because they were sold not on their technological capabilities, but on their lifestyle enhancements. iOS isn’t here to be the highest-spec device available, it’s here to be the best system and interface to use on the market.
Using your Mac is easy, which means sending a fax from your Mac is easy too.
To manage your incoming faxes — as well as to review historic faxes, archive old faxes and curate your received files — you can go to your eFax cloud faxing portal and navigate to the document management centre. Here, you’ll find all your fax documents along with your sent files. It’s quick and easy to find faxes for the sake of referral — an important benefit for modern data protection laws.
