Besides being sent to one (or more) fax machines for hard-copy order/inquiry printouts, InFax can also send received messages to cellphones, pagers, regular telephones, and forward them to one or more email addresses, with delivery to these end devices/addresses scheduled (if needed) by time-of-day, day-of-the-week, the sender, and/or their content.
InFax alternately allows you to have an email address which anyone on the Internet -- customers, prospects, or even friends and relatives -- may send to, which will automatically and immediately be sent to one or more fax machines, mobile phones, pagers, and/or email addresses which you specify.
If you don't have the staffing or time to monitor for new messages regularly, or e-mails need to be directed to a given physical location(s) to be printed for an immediate, verifiable response, the automated InFax service is the perfect solution!
(Note: Larger/enterprise customers requiring dynamic destinations on a per-fax basis and/or high volume faxing, please refer to the OutFax Service Page for details.)

Although web-based order and response systems offer unparalleled opportunities to gain attention for your business and maintain close ties with your customers, many of the hyperbolic claims regarding these opportunities can only be realized with a full-time Internet marketing staff or constant monitoring of new inquiries to present prospective customers with a positive and responsive image of your firm. A take-out restaurant with an unfilled web-based order, parts supply house which is out-of-stock for a pre-ordered customer pickup, or delivery service which fails to deliver will quickly lose a repeat customer!
Internet-based customers demand complete, accurate, and most importantly rapid responses to their queries, and late, untimely or missed responses means your customer and prospects are likely to move on to your competitors who have the facilities and/or staffing and manpower to respond rapidly and accurately.
Even if you aren't a large business, offering your customers the ability to place orders and have them sent directly to the appropriate locations for fulfillment provides a 24-hour marketing and customer retention tool which translates into improved customer response time, satisfied long-term customers, and ultimately higher returns on your marketing and customer service investments.
Interpage's InFax(sm) service provides a simple and time-saving solution to your Internet marketing and support needs, which can not be matched solely by SMS, text-messaging, and/or receving short messages on your smartphone, Blackberry or other phone or smart device: InFax assigns your business a unique (generally e-mail based) address, such as email@example.com which your web site and/or direct customer inquiries or support issues to are sent to. Upon receipt, Interpage immediately transmits the order or inquiry to one or more fax machines (as well as phones, voice, and email if needed) so you or your support staff can respond.
Unlike other restaurant, delivery, or on-line ordering services, InFax requires no special programming, re-design of a given store's web page, APIs, or changes of any kind to an establishment's current web site! Instead, e-mails which used to be sent to the store or restaurant are instead sent to your InFax address, and once this simple change is made, orders will be faxed to one ore more fax machines, sent to one or more cell phones, paged to one more more pagers, called in via OutVoice to one more more telephones, and/or emailed to one or more destinations. Other than a one-time change to the delivery email address, there are no other changes, coding, or programmingneeded to set up and utilize InFax!
Additionally, the received faxes and their content are immutable -- they can not be changed or modified as e-mail or other electronic media can be, and serve as an automated, dispositive, and verifiable resource in the event of an order or communications conflict with customers or suppliers.
Received faxes will appear exactly as they would as if you had logged in with your computer and checked your e-mail, with the sender's complete message header, including name, date, time, and reply e-mail address, as well the entire body of their message. Faxes can be directed to one or more fax machines, or, using the InFax online scheduler utility, scheduled to be delivered to different fax machines based on time or day, day of the week, and/or message header codeword or content. Copies of the received messages may also be sent using the same scheduler utility to one or more e-mail addresses, mobile phones, pagers, and other destinations.
The InFax service serves as an economical bridge or gateway for small to medium scale order and inquiry fulfillment: Costs start at $10 per month plus 10 cents per minute for faxes which are sent to you.
An unlimited InFax option is also available which allows for unmetered, flat-rate InFax use for the fixed monthly price of $75 per month. Unlimited InFax service is available to most US and Canadian destinations.
(Higher volume customers or those who send to a large set of variable fax destinations may also wish to consider the OutFax enterprise fax gateway service.)
