How to Send a Fax from Your Phone with VoiceNEXT Technology
Smartphones are the best device for on-the-go working. They come with a plethora of features to make work-related tasks easy, including a scanner and fax machine. Sometimes, sending a document via email or text doesn’t work, whether due to size, quality, or confidentiality restrictions. Instead, sending a fax is the best possible solution.
VoiceNEXT has created technology that allows faxes to be sent by your existing email application—not as a traditional email. Whether you have an Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, or Gmail account, our FaxNEXT software will allow you to send and receive faxes from anywhere you have email access.
Here are step by step instructions on how to send a fax from your phone using FaxNEXT.
Step 1: Create a New Message
First, create a new email message. In the “to” field, type the recipient’s fax number followed by @FaxNEXT.com. Then, you’re ready for step two!
Step 2: Write a Cover Sheet
To write a cover sheet like a traditional fax would have, type within the body of the email message. Our technology transforms this information into a cover sheet. Then, most importantly, attach a document (any file type will work) and send the message. Many smart devices come with a document scanner and file storage capabilities.
Step 3: Receive a Confirmation
Once the email message is sent, the recipient will receive it as a fax. An email will then be sent to the sender including a detailed confirmation of the successful delivery.
The Benefits of Sending a Fax from a Phone
FaxNEXT software does not use a physical fax machine, so say goodbye to bulky equipment! It can also be used with any mobile device that has an email application. The software uses the device’s internet connection rather than expensive fax lines, eliminating the dreaded busy line signal. Since the fax is being sent via email, faxes can be saved and stored on the phone, rather than piles of paper.
