Is there a place for fax machines in 21st century?Locked
Okay, I admit it. Fax machines frost my shorts. In this day of digital communications, faxing strikes me as an antiquated technology that belongs on the scrap heap with the telegraph, ticker tape, and the pony express. Lousy resolution, waiting for confirmation, long distance phone charges at daytime rates, the waste of resources converting from or back to digital formats, the size restrictions, etc.
Does your workplace still use a fax? What keeps you tied to it? Have you been able to eliminate these electronic dinosaurs? If so, what technologies did you use to replace them? What techniques did you use to convince management to adopt those replacements?
