Hello,

I currently have a business line with a voice mail service that allows me to receive a fax after my voice mail greeting is played. The system received the fax and converts it to a "PDF" form that I can log in to my account on line and view,print.

This would be a great addition to the premier service if we could add this, I would change my service today if that was available.

Thank You

Hello,

Welcome to the forums!

I suggest changing your forum user name to something other than your phone number to avoid unwanted callers.
Please send me a personal message to change it to something else.

Thanks

Probably depends on how many people would be interested in that service given that the market for faxes may not be growing (I have no data supporting this) and the fax services market is already pretty competitive. I pay $1 a month through onesuite.com for a dedicated number that accepts faxes and emails me a pdf.

Unlimited incoming fax to email in PDF format; $1.00 per month. And they provide a dedicated fax number.
See: http://www.onesuite.com/products_OneSuiteFax.asp

Given the availability of products like this, I would much prefer that Ooma concentrate on maintaining and/or improving on the core services.

Obviously, great minds think alike... and I have repeated a similar message several times over the last year. See, e.g.:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1184&hilit=oomg&start=20
and here,
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1184&p=49067&hilit=oomg#p49067
and twice here (got to watch those double posts)
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=10455&p=72670&hilit=babies#p72670

As I see it, Ooma would be wasting time, money and effort if they were to develope an efax system to complement their phone systems.

Might make for a good merger.

Probably not... there are already a number of companies that offer both VOIP and efax (and some offer other services as well). For example, OneSuite also offers VOIP services in addition to its efax service. Packetel who also offers VOIP, transferred all of its efax clients to MyFax. While the fax as a means of communicating is not dead, the need for a fax machine (or the ability to send/receive a fax) is diminished by the ability to scan and email a copy of a document. I don't see faxing as a growth industry; more likely a declining business.

Personally, I would prefer that Ooma concentrate on what it does best; i.e. perfect their existing products. Perhaps if Ooma is looking to the future, they might want to integrate video into their product; perhaps even video conferencing.
