icon-print Indy Business: Do I Need a Fax Line?
Maybe you’re starting a new business in Indy, or upgrading to a dedicated office building. You’re checking out phone service providers and internet providers. Suddenly you wonder if you need a fax line in Indianapolis in 2018. The answer to that question depends on your business and a few other considerations, so let’s dig in.
Do you need a landline?
Unfortunately, sometimes you just need a landline in a business. Perhaps you have a fire alarm or security system that needs a dedicated line. Or maybe your credit card reader is too old to use the internet. If for some reason you are going to need a landline anyway, then having it double as a fax line could save you money in the long run.
Also, you probably won’t ever need two dedicated lines, since most of the time your fax line is sitting unused. Just try not to fax anything if your office catches on fire!
Will you fax from a single location?
You may only need to fax from the office and only need to receive faxes during business hours, but most businesses have moved beyond that. If you think you’ll ever need to fax from another location or another device, or if you’d like to know when a fax arrives and no one is there to see it, then you should consider vFax as an alternative.
vFax is short for virtual faxing, and with it you can send and receive faxes from any location and any device. It is cheaper than a dedicated fax line and can be used by multiple people at once, so there’s no waiting. For most businesses, it’s a far better option.
