It’s never been more important for accountants to utilise the latest in technology in all areas of their practice, or risk not being competitive in a crowded marketplace.
One simple way to employ modern technology in your practice is by moving your communications to the cloud.
Say goodbye to the clunky old fax machine with its expensive line rental, paper, toner and maintenance. Virtual fax is a revolutionary way to send and receive faxes across the globe using any device connected to the internet.
Cloud-based faxing is cost-effective and allows you to send and receive faxes as attachments by linking a virtual fax number to an email client. You can still send to a traditional office fax machine as well, your virtual fax will be converted into a paper document at the other end.
You can keep those confidential client documents super-secure, by sending sensitive documents with SSI and 128-bit encryption.
Send large documents and high-resolution images – up to 1GB - anywhere in the world to multiple recipients.
With your entire faxing history stored on the cloud, retrieval of files is easy. No matter how busy you are, or whichever town or country you happen to be in, vital client data is always at your fingertips.
Virtual fax is easy to set up and use, and offers two clear benefits for accountants and accounting practices in 2016.
Firstly, it can increase productivity by offering mobile faxing on the run (especially important at tax time), comprehensive cloud-based file storage and instant global reach.
Secondly, virtual fax arms you and your practice with the digital expertise clients appreciate, ensuring that you don’t get left behind in a fast-changing accountancy world.
