- Number transfer
- No contract
Nextiva's Fax comes with ten out of ten features with no set-up or activation fee. You are not always around a computer, but a mobile device is sure to be on your person the majority of the time, and Nextiva has the feature that allows you to send and receive faxes instantly with your phone using the email function. You can send a quick fax via email just by attaching a file, and because they accept nearly all file types there is hardly a worry if your fax will send based off the file type. Because of Nextiva's electronic storage you can access them anywhere you have an internet connection.
Creating a new number and having to try to remember it is such a hassle. In most cases, you can actually keep your current fax number and they can transfer it to your new Nextiva fax account so you will not miss a fax while switching companies. To ensure that you do not miss a fax, Nextiva is always on and never busy. This feature means they send faxes over the internet and store every fax you send or receive so that there are no mix ups.
Nextiva has three plans for you to choose what works best for you. The plans are:
500 Pages - Price: $4.95/Month
1,000 Pages - Price: $12.95/Month
3,000 Pages - Price: $29.95/Month.
You are not sworn in with a contract - you can simply purchase the service month to month so that if you do not need it one month you just simply do not purchase it.
- Catered towards businesses
Nextiva is a faxing company catered more towards businesses versus the individual. An individual who does not own their own business typically does not send or receive 500 faxes for personal matters. If you do decide to purchase Nextiva's services and you do not utilize all the pages you paid for that it is a waste of money because you are paying for pages that you are not going to be using.
The Bottom Line
Nextiva has many features that make faxing much easier and more convenient for the growing technology of today. They let you send/receive a fax via mobile device which people tend to have with them almost always. Nextiva's service plans are built more to fit a business versus the individual, unless you will use 500 pages a month. Check out their site to see what you think.
