Pros: Ease of setup, ease of use and the ability to receive a fax anywhere at anytime. Also have mobile apps.

Cons: efax is not HIPPA Compliant, however the same company owns sFax, which is not only HIPPA compliant they have a BAA available for its customers. I am currently in the process of moving much over to sFax.

Pros: It is great to be able to fax from anywhere and not need to have a traditional machine and tie up a phone line to send and receive faxes.

Cons: Sometimes it is slow to send faxes or fails. Also, steps to add in the receiver's info could be streamlined.

Pros: I love how easy this is to use and the level of integration it has with our software. We send and receive faxes for it with very few problems.

Their customer support team is out of this world. The longest I've waited for a reply was under an hour and that was because our direct rep was on a plane. We commonly have less than 5 minute response times.
They give good price breaks on quantity.. we send and receive about 70,000 pages per month and get a great rate. Much more economical than maintaining standard machines.

Cons: There are obscure file\page size limits on faxes sent through their API. They have a new version but it does not work with our software yet.

Pros: We were able to integrate eFax in to a web app quickly and easily, and draw out received files without a lot of hassle.

Cons: Setting up multiple lines was a little confusing at first but we were able to make this work without problem.

Reasonably priced, cloud based secure fax solution. Easy to adopt and fairly straight forward use.

Pros: Reasonably priced way to adopt a secure, cloud based fax solution. Access inbound and outbound faxes from any device with a browser, securely. Automatic e-archive of fax communications.

Cons: The performance for us is just very slow. I don't know if this is due to the encryption implementation or what, but the faxes are slow to load across different browsers and from different PCs. Not a deal killer, but annoying.

Overall: Quick deployment of a cloud based, secure/encrypted eFax solution. Didn't break the budget.

Pros: I suppose for big corporations (or law firms, where I once worked and eFax supplied everyone with their own fax line), this is a good product. However, even when I used it at the law firm, I did not always get notification as I should have, or as fast as I should have, of the receipt of a fax. Or confirmation of a fax. It's nice to have the history of the faxes you've received, so you can go back and get something if you need to. Obviously it does integrate well, it's basically pretty easy to use (if you can operate a regular fax machine, you can run eFax), and it's been around a while. But for the individual user or small companies, really, it's much too expensive, especially since there are so many other free or very cheap options out there. The "free trial" is a joke. Don't waste your time if you're going to sign up for it, just so you can send a quick fax, thinking you will cancel before the free trial ends. They're going to get money out of you one way or the other. Keep that number to your credit card's charge dispute line ready. If you only send the rare fax, bounce over to HelloFax instead and send it for free. Or set up the fax option in Microsoft and fax directly from your word processing software.

Cons: Expensive, shady "free trial" that bills you no matter what, doesn't offer anything in terms of increased efficiency or performance that I can't get from using a free or already installed on my machine service.

Pros: I like the convenience of being able to get my own fax directly and not having to wait for someone to forward to my attention. I also like the email notification when a fax comes in or has successfully been faxed by you.

Cons: Not always able to see what you fax or confirmed it was faxed. Not sure how to look up already sent faxes.

Pros: It works ok, The faxes are sent as you would expect them to be

Cons: We signed up for their service three months ago using the free one month trial. After about two weeks, we realised that the service was not what we needed so send an email requesting the cancelation of our account. At the end of the first month, they charged us for the following month (obviously not cancelling the account before the free trial ended). We then sent another email and a letter. We then got charged again and have now send another letter and email as well as advising our bank we would like to charge back the charges to our credit card as they where un-authorized. Wish us luck!
