They have to be a different number from your telephone number if you already have one of the above, but we believe if you use a fax machine, there are huge benefits to having a fax to email number.
Firstly, it means you can get rid of your fax machine. You don’t have to leave it switched on 24 hours a day 7 days a week so as not to miss a fax. This saves quite a lot of electricity.
However, it means you can still receive faxes, so if customers wish to send you a fax you are able to give them a fax number.
It also saves paper, as the fax is sent straight to your email inbox, so you only print it if you want or need to.
With the fax in your email inbox, it helps to create a more efficient filing system.
Finally, if you already have an 0800, 0845, 0844 or virtual number, it means that your fax number will match your telephone number, so you don’t end up with a non-geographic phone number, but then a fax number revealing you are in Essex.
