The service enables connection with business applications (ERP, CRM…) so that fax messages can be sent directly from these applications. A big advantage is also the fact that fax messages can be sent to and received from any location.
Cloud Fax is managed by means of the self-service Internet portal, so the users can easily select, subscribe to, and activate the service. It takes only about twenty minutes, starting form the moment of service activation to the use of the service. The service is available in two packages which meet the needs of companies of all sizes. All packages can be upgraded by additional fax numbers, channels for sending and receiving fax messages, as well as with an archive for storing of fax messages.
The service is available free of charge during a 30-day trial period. After expiry of this period, a fixed monthly fee is charged for the service, without a contractual obligation. The minimum price of the package amounts to HRK 39/month. When transferring to Cloud Fax, it is possible to keep the current fax number.
