The Dinosaur Lives: Why Fax Won’t Die
Fax machines have been relegated as the dinosaur of office equipment. It’s big, loud, bulky, and most noticeably–OLD. But despite the development of portable and paperless technology, most businesses still can’t part with them. Some experts would argue that fax is already dead and that it is a redundant technology on the way to becoming obsolete. This statement is only partly true. Fax as we used to know it may have experienced a death, but it has risen from the ashes of its weaknesses and become something much more useful- online faxing. The digital age has made it easier to migrate office functions online. Everything that used to be done with a click of button, can now be done with a swipe of a screen. But unlike some equipment that have been totally phased out by these changes, the fax has found a way to thrive and benefit from the digital revolution.
