Send your fax number into retirement and operate in a paperless manner utilising our fax solutions.
By purchasing a fax number from CIX you can not only receive faxes, but also send them without a
phone line or fax machine from anywhere you have an Internet connection. By adopting this paperless
platform you can be set to save time, paper, ink, line rental charges and the need for a fax machine.
Reduce paper and ink wastage
By removing the fax machine from your office you can reduce waste in multiple ways. With a traditional
fax machine every fax received, regardless of whether it is legitimate or spam, is printed. Each time you
print you are utilising power, paper, ink and you may even have a phone line dedicated to fax. With the
fax to email solution the fax is delivered to your mail client electronically with no need to print. If
you wish to store it, do so electronically. Likewise if you need to distribute the document you can do
so via email as the fax is sent as a PDF attachment.
Where sending is concerned, no longer is it necessary for you to print off your documents, only for the
fax machine to scan and send them. Instead, send an email with your attached documents. Our system will
scan and send without any paper being wasted.
Receiving by email aids security and accountability
The chances are that in your office you have a pooled fax machine. Documents received can be
seen and distributed by those who are first to the machine.
With the Fax to Email platform each member of staff can have their own dedicated fax number. Alternatively
you can specify who the recipients should be for each fax, which can be one or several email addresses. By
receiving the faxes by email you can limit exposure to potentially confidential information.
Dedicated fax number for delivery to your desktop as an email
With our platform you have a fax number that your clients can continue to dial and send to
as they would any other fax number. Our system will convert the contents of the email into a PDF
document which is attached to an email and sent to you. Via your control panel you can specify
which email addresses should receive a copy of these emails. There are no limits to the number
of email recipients who can receive a copy of each fax received.
There are no additional costs per fax received. You simply pay an annual subscription and
Send us an email, we'll send it as a fax
Sending a fax has never been easier! You can now send our system a fax, and we will do the
rest for you. Admittedly it cuts down your daily walks to the fax machine, but on the plus side it should
save you time and money.
We charge based on the number of pages that are sent to the destination email address. This is
operated on a pre-paid credit basis with credits being assigned to pre-registered email addresses. When
an email is received by our system we'll debit the credits used.
You would simply send your fax to firstname.lastname@example.org replacing the number with the fax
number you want to reach. Our system will attempt to send, and in the event it's engaged will auto-retry.
Emails are sent to you to confirm success or failure.

to the line ceasing, so if the line is also used for broadband, as an example, be sure to have a plan
