Sending and receiving documents by fax is of paramount importance to businesses in several key industries, including healthcare organizations, law firms and financial services companies, which continue to rely on fax communications to meet security and compliance regulations, along with retaining the legal admissibility of documents sent electronically from point to point. In an independent blind survey of 1,008 office workers conducted by Opinion Matters on behalf of GFI Software in October 2012, 85% of respondents said their businesses continue to make use of faxing in some capacity.
The survey also revealed potential security problems with traditional paper faxing, with nearly half of respondents (49%) admitting that they had read a paper fax that was intended for someone else. As a completely paperless solution, GFI FaxMaker Online eliminates the possibility of a paper fax getting into the wrong hands by ensuring faxes are routed directly to the intended individual or workgroup recipient.
