The use of fax server software is growing by leaps and bounds, according to a report published by the International Data Corporation (IDC). The fax report surveyed organizations across the country and found that:
- 82% of them saw fax usage stay the same or increase last year.
- Of those who increased fax usage, the average growth was by 27%.
- A quarter of those who increased fax usage saw growth between 50-75%.
Fax is still relevant to businesses and organizations because, like any long standing technology, it has evolved with the times. From cloud storage to integrations with document storage and enterprise resource planning software, fax solutions have remained in lock step with the quickly evolving technology needs of nearly every industry that utilizes it.
The same can be said about the sales industry.
