Fax machines are an annoying relic of a previous era. Most individuals don’t have one, most businesses do. They are slow, unreliable, clunky, space-consuming, and generally everything I hate. HelloFax is a simple, freemium alternative to a fax machine. I don’t need to send or receive faxes often – but when I do, it is a hassle. HelloFax removes this hassle.
HelloFax allows you to send documents via their web service. They handle all the delicacies of actually delivering it to a physical fax machine – you just scan (or save) your document and then upload it to their service through a friendly, intuitive web interface. You can send five faxes for free each month. If you need additional faxes they are $.99/ea. Alternatively, you can sign up for their basic service at $5/mo. which allows you to send a whopping 50 faxes and you get your own fax number so you can receive faxes (without having a physical fax machine).
HelloFax allows for you to sign documents digitally and to request digital signatures. It also integrates with Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox – how nifty is that? Everybody give HelloFax a round of applause for being awesome.
