Internet fax

Sending and receiving faxes made easy. Give your company advanced online fax functionality with RingCentral internet fax service.

What is internet fax?

Internet fax is the functionality that big and small businesses use to send and receive faxes over the internet. While a heavy bulk of information and paperwork used to be sent through fax machines before the internet became a thing, today’s business environment has adapted to a faster, more efficient way to share data—and took advantage of the internet to do so.

Unlike traditional faxing, online faxing utilizes your computers, laptops, or mobile devices to send faxes. This allows businesses to send faxes even without a physical fax machine. In fact, senders do not even have to print the document they have to send. Recipients receive it as a fax printout through their fax machines or as a PDF image via their own online fax account.

A trusted internet fax service provider, RingCentral is your partner in making sure all your faxing needs are met. From previewing faxes and designing custom cover sheets to keeping private information secure and email inboxes organized, we offer the complete range of functionality you would look for in an online fax service.
