Although it may not seem like it, Fax is still widely used in 2021. In the healthcare, legal, and financial services industries, fax is used almost everyday in numerous workflows. A fax is scanned printed material— which can be either text or images— that is transmitted through the telephone network to a printer or other output device. The reliability and security associated with sending faxes makes it ideal for sharing documents that may contain sensitive or confidential information.
But using fax in 2021 doesn’t mean you have to save space in your office for a loud, bulky machine. Thanks to APIs, nowadays you don’t even need a fax machine to send a fax, meaning you can take advantage of the reliability and security while automating your fax processes.

What is a fax API?

A Fax API (Application Programming Interface) allows users to send and receive faxes in the cloud, programmatically. With a Fax API, businesses can build fax functionality into many of their daily workflows, saving time and eliminating errors.
