4 reasons why any medical practice need to move their faxlines from analogue to the internet to avoid frustrations
As we know the medical practice industry still use faxlines for communication especially for scripts as well as sensitive information. With the South African technology demographics changing at a rapid pace; changing to the latest technology on fax is more prominent than ever.
We’ve pulled together the 4 most important reasons why you need to change:
Moving over to a Virtual Fax solution will save on call costs with lower call rates. as well as monthly analogue line rentals. Faxes will terminate faster which will also decrease the duration of the fax and increase cost saving.
Archiving of Documents
Not just in medical but in most industries records need to be kept for a minimum of 5 years. Moving over to a Virtual Fax line will provide an additional feature called fax archiving – faxes currently now being archived for 10 years.
Analogue lines are based on copper technology. One of the biggest challenges in South Africa currently is the theft of copper cables. In the majority of these cases the cables are not replaced and then leaves a lot of companies in the dark when it comes to their current communication.
The End of Analogue Lines
The current provider of 99% of all analogue infrastructure announced that it will be ending its analogue network by 2022. This means that all fax lines still remaining on the analogue network will stop working by the end of year 2022.
