"UK businesses are increasingly looking to reduce business costs and improve efficiency," said Paul Kinsella, General Manager of j2 Global Europe. "By highlighting the cost-savings advantage, along with the benefits of switching to a cloud service like eFax, we are helping small UK business professionals stay competitive, focused, and be more productive by having access to the kind of infrastructure that only large companies used to have, all whilst reducing overall business costs."

In addition to the cost savings, eFax offers UK businesses:

  • Freedom & flexibility - The eFax Mobile Apps enables UK businesses to fax directly from their iPhone/Android smartphones. No more waiting by the fax machine for critical contracts or documents.

  • Free Lifetime Online Storage - The paperless office is a reality with eFax. With unlimited lifetime storage users can securely archive faxed documents online. These documents, which are digitally stored on secure file servers, can be retrieved at anytime from anywhere.

  • Security and confidentiality - eFax Secure™ encrypts faxes and stores them as a TIFF or PDF in a secure inbox. eFax improves the privacy of critical documents by eliminating the risks inherent in having confidential faxed documents sitting next to a traditional fax machine.

  • Digital signature - eFax eliminates the need to print, sign and scan documents by providing digitised signature capabilities. Contracts or other documents that require a signature can be faxed to a user's account where their digitised signature is added from their PC, tablet or smartphone. The approved document can then be sent along via email or fax.

  • Large File Sharing - this gives users the capability to reliably and securely upload and share files over 5MB (up to 1G) to any email address without bounce-backs or failed send attempts.
