Our paperless fax solutions however, allow you to cremate your fax machine and reinvent your fax solution into 21st century form.
ICUK Fax to Email / Email to Fax
Paperless Fax Solutions: Operate in ‘paperless mode’ by using our fax solutions. Through the purchase of a fax number from ICUK you can not only receive faxes but also send them without a phone line or fax machine. This can be done from anywhere in the world, as long as an internet connection exists. Through adopting this paperless form, you can save valuable time, paper, ink, line rental costs but also the space where the fax machine once lived. How about a team photo or your latest news feature instead?
Environmentally Friendly: Cremating the fax machine from your office can reduce waste in multiple ways. Every fax received by a traditional fax machine uses paper, regardless of whether it’s legitimate or spam. Each time you print a fax you are using paper, ink, power and a phone line dedicated to fax. With the ICUK fax to email solution, the fax is delivered to your mail client electronically, giving you the option of being able to print or trash once read. Subsequently this reduces paper and ink wastage.
Improve Security: Receiving a fax via email aids security, as traditional fax machines typically receive a lot of faxes which anyone who is by the machine could read. With the ICUK fax to email platform, each member of staff can have their own dedicated fax number. Alternatively you can specify who the recipients should be for each fax, which can be one or several email addresses. Receiving faxes by email limits the leak of potentially confidential information.
Receive Faxes: There’s only a certain number of trips to the fax machine you can make in a day! How about a dedicated fax number for delivery to your desktop? With our fax to email platform your faxes get converted into a PDF document which is then attached to an email and sent to you. Via the ICUK control panel, you can specify which email addresses should receive these emails, with no limits applied to the number of recipients. You simply pay an annual subscription for this service.
Send Faxes: Sending a fax has never been so simple! You can now send our system an email and we will do the rest. This not only cuts out your daily hike to the fax machine, but saves you time and printing costs. We charge you based on the number of pages sent. This is operated on a pre-paid credit basis, credits being assigned to the pre-registered email addresses. You would simply send your fax to email@example.com, replacing the number with the fax number your wish to reach. Our system will attempt to send, and in the event that the line is engaged will auto retry. Emails are sent to you to confirm success or failure.
Choose Your Number: We literally have millions of phone numbers you can pick from for you fax to email number. Our ranges cover the vast majority of areas codes in the UK (eg 01865 and 0151) as well as non-geographic solutions (eg 0845 and 03).
For a small fee we can also arrange to port your existing BT based phone number across to our platform and thus retiring your line as well as your fax machine. Please note that porting the number can lead to the line ceasing, so if the line is also used for broadband, as an example, be sure to have a plan in place.
