HelloFax on CBS New! Companies can save on printing costs with HelloFax

November 23rd, 2011

CBS News writes that corporations spend between 1-3% of their annual revenue on printing.  By filling out and signing documents in the browser, we save companies from having to print, sign and scan documents – which is an incredible waste of both paper and employee time.

Here’s what CBS News suggests:
“Invest in digital signatures. One of the most common reasons for printing is to sign a document. You can eliminate that requirement by using a digital signature. HelloFax, for example, is an online fax service that can store a digital version of your signature. You can stamp any digital document with that signature and email or fax it from a PC. There’s no longer any need to print stuff just to sign it.3 Tactics for Weaning Your Office off of Printers.

Many of our users have gone paperless and stopped using printers, scanners and fax machines all together; others have simply gone paperless. It’s great to see that CBS noticed!

Get a local number… in the UK!

November 21st, 2011

We got some very persistent emails from our users in the UK. It got harder and harder to put off.  So, we finally set it up! Also, you can get UK numbers for the exact same price as US numbers.  Basic, Premium or Ultimate Plans can get a local number. See if we have a number in your area >

Here’s how it works:

1. Pick the UK for your country:

2. Pick an area code, based on your city

3. That’s it! Then, whenever someone faxes that number, we’ll forward it as a PDF to your email account. You never have to touch a fax machine again.

Amazon is awesome

November 19th, 2011

I bought Steve Job’s biography a few weeks ago and since then, there’s been a few changes to the book. So, Amazon sent an email to me. All I have to do is reply with “Yes” and Amazon will download an updated copy to my Kindle.  I don’t have to log in, click on anything or agree to any terms of service. This is user friendliness at its best.

HelloFax on TV!

November 18th, 2011

This is our third appearance onto TV. Thanks to WSAV for the coverage!

As a minor correction, we do have a free plan and a $4.99 / month plan as well – not just the $9.99 / month and $69.99 / month plans. Also, since this video, we’ve also launched the ability to have multiple fax recipients (see here). So, you can now fax both your grandma and your lawyer at the same time.

Saving drafts: never lose your unfinished documents

November 18th, 2011

If you accidentally close your browser or the computer crashes, you could lose all your work. That’s really frustrating (it’s happened it us!), especially if you spent a lot of time on the document.  So, we solved that problem.

Here’s how it works:

1. We save every document you upload (on the “Send” tab) as a Draft. If you make changes to the document, we constantly update the draft. That way, we always maintain the most up to date version.

2. If you accidentally close your window, the file won’t be lost. You can just click on the “Manage” tab and see your file there. Just click on “Edit” to go back to where you left off.

Best part – you don’t have to do anything to get started. It happens automatically.

November 15th, 2011

Here’s what they have to say about us:

“HelloFax gives you a local fax number that delivers to your email inbox. You can seamlessly fill in forms, sign documents, request signatures from others and fax the documents back. It’s been about three years since I’ve held a faxed piece of paper in my hands.”  13 Tech Tools for a Paper-Free Life

Send to Multiple Recipients

November 7th, 2011

This has been one our most request features, especially from lawyers. Sometimes you have to send a document to multiple people. It could be your spouse, your lawyer and your accountant. Normally, you’d have to send the document multiple times, which is a hassle.  So, we final solved that problem.

Just click on “+Recipient” to add recipients. That’s it!

Free and Basic accounts can email multiple recipients. If you’d like to fax multiple recipients, you can sign up for our Premium or Ultimate Plan >
