The Secret of Successful Pharmacies

Now you can process prescriptions faster and from anywhere without a fax machine

Is your pharmacy missing out on business?®

Prescriptions are the lifeblood of pharmacy revenue, but unfortunately, due to the unreliability of fax machines, prescriptions often don’t arrive, users get busy signals, lines are tied up with other phone calls, and more. This means your pharmacy could be missing out on business. But one simple change can make an enormous impact on your bottom line: fax online instead of with a machine.

What is Online Faxing?

Online faxing enables you, and your pharmacy staff, to send and receive faxes via email, eliminating the need for a fax machine. It transforms your email inbox into a virtual fax machine, converting an inbound paper fax (e.g. prescription) into a digital file, such as a PDF, which can be received and shared electronically via email for faster processing. 

How much can I save? 

When you fax online you don't need a fax machine or fax server, so you are immediately saving on the cost of hardware, on maintenance costs and on fax supplies such as paper, ink and toner. You also no longer need to pay for a telcom line.
Online fax pricing is based on usage, so your cost will depend on the number of fax numbers you need, and the volume of fax pages you send and receive each month.
