Got your shopping done yet? Most people I talk to have gotten theirs done or most of the way done. But, when I ask them what they got for themselves I get a blank look. Apparently nobody thinks that they should get themselves a gift. Well, let me offer a suggestion. Go get yourself a gift! After all, haven’t you been nice this year? I’ll even go so far as to make a suggestion: Give your self the gift of never having to use a fax machine again! Imagine if you could send a fax with the press of a button and not have to wait around to see if it got delivered. And imagine if faxes that were sent to you always got delivered with all of the pages intact and readable. It’s all possible if you follow my suggestions below.
To start with, go sign up for MyFax for $10.00 a month. MyFax® is an award-winning Internet fax service that lets you send and receive faxes through your email. MyFax provides exceptional value, a great low monthly price, and 24/7 customer support. And, although there are others providing a similar service, it’s the one that I use and therefore recommend.
Although MyFax will let you send any document that is already on your hard drive, what about documents that are in paper form? Wouldn’t you need a fax machine to send them? Nope. Not if you have a scanner. Again, there are any to choose from, but the Fujitsu ScanSnap series is the one all the rest try to beat. And can’t.
The ScanSnap comes in a version for Windows and a version for Mac. There are desktop models and portable models to choose from. The desktop models come with Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Standard which allows the scanner to save scanned documents as Adobe PDF files. All models come with Rack2Filer software which simplifies document management. The Fujitsu web site is offering a free carrying case for the Windows version of the portable scanner and a $50.00 rebate on the Windows Desktop and Mac desktop and portable versions.
So, if you’ve got MyFax and one of the ScanSnaps you won’t need to ever use a fax machine again. A side benefit is that any thing that you ScanSnap and fax will arrive looking as good as the original copy. No more messy faxes coming from you.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Winter Solstice and whatever other holiday you may be celebrating! Be sure to include yourself on your gift list and get one of these. It will change the way you do business for the better. (I own 4 of these devices and have them at home, at my office, in my briefcase and at my wife’s office and have been a MyFax customer for years, so I am speaking to you from experience and as a satisfied customer)
For your convenience you can visit my Amazon Store so you can purchase the ScanSnap. You may be able to get a better price by shopping around. I’ve also provided a link to MyFax (above) for your convenience.
