Ottawa (August 19, 2009) - MyFax today announced the availability of its podcast "Tips for Greening Your Office Technology". In the podcast, GREENandSAVE.com president Charlie Szoradi outlines simple ways businesses can improve energy efficiency and simultaneously save money. One solution he recommends is MyFax, the world's fastest-growing Internet fax service.
"People are using over a pound and a half of paper per day per employee," Szoradi said. GREENandSAVE drives initiatives that range from saving money for home and business owners to re-training individuals for new careers in the green economy. "Fax machines alone create such a waste of paper. It's startling to realize that traditional fax machine contribute to the hundreds of dollars per employee that's spent on paper over the course of a year. Smarter electronic solutions like MyFax are a great solution for paper reduction."
MyFax sends and receives faxes using an email account, removing the need for a dedicated phone line and fax machine. The service, which fully integrates with Microsoft Office, IBM Lotus Notes and ACT!, enables users to manage their fax communication and corresponding document management work flow more efficiently and at a lower cost than traditional fax servers or fax machines, regardless of physical location.
"Subtle changes to business technology practices have an immense impact on the bottom line," said Luc Vezina, Product Marketing Director for MyFax. "We repeatedly hear from customers that the costs associated with a traditional fax machine, like paper, toner and a phone line, far outweigh the costs of converting to an Internet fax service. Factor in doing something good for the environment, and switching to Internet faxing is a no-brainer."
In the podcast, Szoradi also suggests other technology modifications including using smart power strips and evaluating lighting and water cooler use.
MyFax recently earned its fourth straight Gold Award from TopTenREVIEWS, an Internet publisher of expert technology and entertainment reviews seen by millions of consumers. After performance reviews of more than a dozen competing Internet fax services, TopTenREVIEWS continues to give MyFax its "Gold" or No. 1 ranking.
