Streamline Communications With an Online Faxing Platform

Why Use an Email to Fax Platform?

What makes online fax services like MetroFax so beneficial for businesses?

Email to fax services provide a wide range of benefits to professionals that help them cut costs, improve productivity, and stay organized.

Efficient Communications

Using a traditional fax machine is slow and inefficient compared to online faxing solutions. When using a fax machine, you waste significant amounts of time waiting for your turn, feeding documents into the machine, and waiting for the machine to process each document.

Internet fax solutions eliminate these processes by allowing users to send faxes right from their computers or mobile devices. Simply sign in to your email account, choose your recipients, attach your fax, and you're good to go!


No matter your fax needs, MetroFax is the online faxing service you can rely on.

Our platform offers several advantages to ensure you're able to maintain efficient communications:

  • Enhanced protection and high-speed fax transmission
  • Rapid deployment across teams and offices
  • 24/7/365 reliability
  • Exceptional free support

Never worry about a thing when you choose MetroFax to send a fax online.


MetroFax is your all-in-one online faxing service. You can fax from email, the web, desktop computers, or smartphones without ever needing to deal with an actual fax machine.

Our online platform offers the most flexible faxing solutions available.

Easy Organization

When dealing with important documents, it's crucial to choose an online fax service that helps you stay organized.

MetroFax supports online cloud storage, offers a useful tag and search feature, and maintains accurate activity logs to help users stay on top of their most important documents.


Not only are traditional fax machines inefficient, but they also require businesses to incur unnecessary costs. From buying the fax machine itself to paying for paper, setting up a phone line, maintenance, and supplies, the costs to use a standard fax machine can add up quickly.

For a small monthly fee, MetroFax makes it easy to send faxes from any electronic device without ever needing to worry about maintenance or supplies costs. Cut faxing costs more than 50% with an online faxing service.

Send Faxes From Anywhere

Business doesn't just take place in the office. Small businesses need flexible faxing solutions that allow them to send and receive faxes online whether they're in or out of the office.

With internet faxing services, you can fax by email from your office desktop, personal mobile device, tablet, or any other internet-connected electronic device.


As more and more businesses search for environmentally-friendly alternatives to common business technologies, many of them are ditching traditional fax machines in favor of online fax services that don't use plastic, paper, or excessive amounts of power.

Email-to-fax platforms make it easier for your small business to reduce its carbon footprint while improving the efficiency of your communications. No plastic, paper, or printing required.
