Have you ever grown tired of using your old and outdated fax machine? I am actually still surprised that these machines are used as much as they are. With technology racing forward, the fax machine is still in the old days. I know of many businesses that have decided to get rid of their fax machine and just deal with emails and scanners. If you or your company is looking for a way to get rid of your fax machine, but still have the capability of faxing, then you need to check out online faxing. One of the best services out there is eFax. Online faxing is not new, but it is growing at a fast rate and you can take advantage of the easier faxing movement that is sweeping the world.
The eFax technology is good and allows you to upload your documents into the eFax interface, and then eFax will fax them to the numbers that you specify. Mind you that you will need a scanner to get any documents onto your computer, but with all the printer/scanner combos out there, it will not be a very hard thing to do. The eFax service is low cost and you can either get a new fax number or eFax can port over your existing fax number. It only takes about 2 minutes to sign up and get a new fax number through eFax, but it will take a little longer to port over your existing number.
If you are interested in testing the online faxing service, then eFax provides you with a Free 30 Day Trial that will provide you access to their eFax Plus plan. eFax currently has two plans to choose from, Plus and Pro. Each has relatively the same set of features, but mainly the price per page is different. Here are the two plans broken down.
With eFax Plus, you’ll get a private and secure way to send and receive faxes as email attachments.
- Choose a local or toll-free number
- 130 pages of incoming faxes each month
- $10.00 one-time setup fee
- $.15 per page overage charge
- Lifetime storage
- Send and Receive faxes as email attachments
eFax Pro is a professional solution for larger businesses and individuals with increased faxing needs. You can switch to eFax Pro at any time and receive additional fax pages, as well as voicemail to email.
- Free voicemail to email
- 200 pages of incoming faxes or voicemail minutes each month
- $19.95 one-time setup fee
- $.10 per page overage charge
- Lifetime storage
- Send and Receive faxes as email attachments
Here is the breakdown in pricing for the two plans, each under $20 per month:
If you want to break free from your fax machine, then check out eFax. Sign up for their 30 Free Trial and test it out. Depending on how many faxes you send per month, you may be able to save quite a bit of money and reduce the headache of faxing.

WebEx is an innovator in the web conferencing industry with top quality services and support to match their great technology. WebEx is owned by Cisco and has been providing web conferencing and meeting services to businesses and individuals for years. While they have great technology, their service is really geared toward businesses. They only have one unlimited plan that is $49 per month, so it might not be very cost effective for individuals that need web conferencing a few times a month or less. This plan can only have up to 25 participants at a time, but they do have add on features that can have more. There are many other conference providers that can help individuals looking for a cheap plan. If you are wishing to try WebEx, then they do provide a 14 day free trial to test their web-based software.
WebEx provides their web-based service in a central area called the WebEx Meeting Center. This is where you can control your account and all of your meetings. The basic features of the meeting center are as follows:
- Review project plans and activities together.
- Make sales presentations to prospects.
- Brainstorm together, and share ideas interactively as you go.
- Hold individual or small group training sessions.
- Share ideas and information easily, instantly.
- Bring teams together online—even if they’re located around the world.

- Just meet online and discuss, make changes, resolve issues, and approve—all in real-time.

In addition to the features of the Meeting Center, users can add additional features based on their needs. The add on features are:
With the above features, you will still get all of the standard webex features, plus whichever new feature that you choose. This allows for greater customization for your needs and your web conferencing needs.
