Launched in 2004 by Protus IP Solutions, MyFax was designed to be an easy alternative to fax machines for small and medium-sized businesses. MyFax offers busy professionals the flexibility and cost savings that come with being able to fax by email or online. There is no hardware or software required; the entire service works in the cloud.
MyFax has grown in popularity and business professionals have been happy to drop their bulky, unreliable desktop fax machines. In fact, the service became so popular that in 2010 j2 Global, a world leader in cloud communication services for business, acquired MyFax.
