Method 1: Fax Printer
Many offices already have existing fax machines that are configured as printers on their workstations. When a document is sent to the fax printer, the installed third-party printing software prompts the user to enter the fax number. Using this method, any program can send printable items to the fax machine including Newton.
Method 2: E-Fax
E-fax services work by signing up for an account with a third-party provider, then emailing a document to the fax service including the recipient’s fax number. The fax service converts the attachment into a fax, and sends it on your behalf.
- For Example
- Client fax number = 979-846-3370
- E-fax service = Metrofax
- Email Address = email@example.com
The e-fax address can be entered into Newton as a “Fax contact”, either on the client or company. Sending a document using an e-fax service would simply require selecting the existing fax contact, or entering in the number on the compose email window.
See: Email for more information.
Regardless of the method used to send the faxes, the faxable documents can be produced with a single feature within Newton called Batch Send.
Batch Send is a powerful feature that allows you to group Memos, Forms, and other Attachments together. The selected items can be sent in batch to the printer, fax printer, output as a .PDF, published to My Insurance Dashboard, or sent as an attachment in an email message.
