1) Cost – Faxes are a low-cost mode of communication. There are no actual costs involved except from the purchase of telephone sheets, ink, and energy. It also excludes any monthly or annual subscription fees.
2) Speed – Unlike emails, which might take a long time if the file is enormous, fax documents can be sent to the recipient in a matter of seconds. Messages can contain data from diagrams, sketches, and drawings.
3) Dependability – Fax machines are fully malware-free and have no programming faults. As a result, as long as both fax machines are turned on, the documents are guaranteed to be delivered. The fax machine sends a receipt of delivery to the sender once the document has been sent to the receiver.
4) Installation – Fax machine installation is quite straightforward and does not require any specific training. There is no difficult wiring process or additional hardware required for the setup. Only the fax machines required connection to the phone line and the wall socket. Then it will be ready for usage.
5) Security – Unlike computers and emails, fax machines are very unlikely to be hacked. As a result, neither the sender nor the receiver should be concerned about security. That is why many large organisations continue to deliver legal documents through fax (i.e government, law and healthcare).
6) Convenience – Sending and receiving documents with fax machines is simple. Many people who used to work in offices are familiar with how they work. If you are not one of them, training is simple and takes little time. The user only needs to insert the document, enter the recipient number, and click the transmit button.
7) Legality – Fax machines allow the sender to deliver handwritten documents to the receiver, who will receive exact duplicates. As a result, these records can be utilised in legal proceedings, even in court.
