Businesses must decide whether they want to administer their own fax servers or use an online fax service provider. The online faxing service provider option is the cheapest, but some online fax companies may want to control online faxing for security reasons, for example.
If a business chooses to provide its own online fax service in house, the uniform standards of the company’s information technology infrastructure must be followed to ensure enterprise-wide compatibility and consistency. This means all the employees need to be using the same client software for online fax. A universal mailbox may also need to be established for fax reception and storage.
