WHY BUY A FAX MACHINE?

 

Fax machines are an integral part of office life, and you won't need reminding how useful they can be, but as they become more affordable a lot of people are asking if they have any practical use in the home? Judging by the popularity of the new generation of compact models the answer has to be a very definite yes!

 

It's not just business users who benefit from swift and flexible communications. You can send and receive documents, letters -- typed or hand-written -- drawings and pictures, to or from almost anywhere in the world, in a matter of seconds. You'll be able to order goods and services, obtain product details, confirm reservations or send last-minute birthday and Christmas greetings. Apart from being faster, fax correspondence often gets a quicker response from businesses and organisations. Fax machines also double up as photocopiers, and the latest 'plain paper' models print out crisp images on ordinary paper, and the copies won't curl or fade over time.

 

In addition to making them cheaper, microchip technology has made modern fax machines smaller, more efficient and simpler to use, moreover a growing number of models now have built-in answering facilities. It's no longer a question of do you need a fax machine, but which one?
