The Difference in Fax Use on the Other Side of the Pond

TMCNet, Juliana Kenny
A recent survey by Intel (News – Alert) revealed that 40 percent of small businesses in the U.K. are still using fax machines. As we love to discuss on the Fax online community, of course, fax technologies are nowhere near “dead” or “dinosaur-ish” as some purport.

Fax is used in different capacities all over the world, including “FoIP” which stands for fax-over-IP. Its use is doubling each year, but the use of it varies from nation to nation. Those of us in the U.S. use fax technologies differently than those in the U.K. To get some more insight into how exactly fax is used differently, I talked with Steve Woodard, CEO of Quadrant Software.

To get more insight into how exactly we perceive fraudulent activities in relation to fax, FoIP, email, and other technological processes that require the transfer of documentation over various networks, I reached out to Steve Woodard, CEO at Quadrant Software.
