Telappliant released Fax38TM, a new service to allow old fax machines to take advantage of VoIP. Fax38 enables low-cost faxes over Telappliant’s VoIP network through a Cisco® T.38 compatible Analogue Telephone Adaptor (ATA). Transmissions can cost as little as one pence per page and potentially cut fax transmission costs by as much as 95 per cent a year.
Despite the ubiquitous use of email, fax messages remain an important means of business communication – particularly for legal documents. There are still more than 200 billion pages faxed worldwide every year. The UK is the 13th highest fax-using country* which is the equivalent of one fax machine for every 40 people.
Tan Aksoy, Chief Executive Officer at Telappliant, commented, “Many organisations are already experiencing the benefits of VoIP for mobile and landline communications – and VoIP adoption is expected to rise next year too. However fax continues to be an important means of business communication in the legal, finance and public sector for example. The launch of our Fax38 service will provide an easy-to-use, secure and cost effective method to help extend the savings already being made by organisations through VoIP telephony.”
Telappliant’s three simple steps to gain access to cheaper fax transmissions:
1.Fax38 is automatically enabled for all Telappliant VoIPtalk accounts.
2.Connect an ATA to your fax machine and broadband router.
3.Dial the prefix *38 to send a fax message via Telappliant’s VoIP network.
4.Fax messages will be charged at standard Telappliant call tariffs and you can use your call plan minutes for even greater savings.
Telappliant also provides an additional service called Fax2email, which is an ideal solution for individuals and businesses that want to receive fax transmissions direct to their email inbox without the need for a physical fax machine.
