Comunication –
it’s the key to running a thriving business.

You need to communicate with clients/customers, with vendors and suppliers, with business partners, employees, and so many others. However, it’s also crucial that you have the right communication tools.
Email, SMS, phone calls – they’re all useful, but you could be missing a critical element of your toolkit: a fax number.

Send and Receive Faxes Online without the Fax Machine

Faxing is still a critical communication technology, but what small business really has the space (or budget) to dedicate to a fax machine? Maintaining your own fax machine also means paying for ink and toner, service when the machine goes down, and so much more.
There’s a better way – online faxing with MetroFax lets your customers, vendors, and suppliers send an online fax to you without any need for a fax machine at your business. You can also send and receive faxes on your own. Of course, you’ll need to know a bit more about online faxing, including what type of number you should use.

Frequently Asked Questions

A fax number is the phone number associated with a fax machine or online fax account. Your contacts will enter this number into their fax machine to send a fax to you.
This can be any phone number, technically. For instance, if you choose to connect a fax machine to your business’s phone line, then your regular phone number is now a fax number because the fax machine will answer any inbound calls as long as it is connected. With an online fax service, this is no longer the case, as you can receive faxes online without the need to tie up a business line.
Traditionally, fax numbers were assigned by your local telephone carrier. However, today, an online fax service like MetroFax can assign you a local fax number without you having to deal with the phone company or pay for another line. We can also provide toll-free fax numbers and other services, such as fax by email.
