Fax from ACT! using MyFax

There's a new ACT! add-on that is free for MyFax fax customers. It lets you use MyFax to send and receive faxes - all within ACT!

For those who might not know, ACT! is a popular contact management and CRM program that is used by millions of sales people. ACT! is where all of their customer contact information is stored, and it tracks correspondence with customers.

Adding MyFax to ACT! is efficient and powerful. It's efficient because you never need to leave ACT! or re-enter fax numbers - you can even create personalized faxes using the ACT! mail-merge features. It's powerful because every fax that you send or receive is directly linked to your Contacts, giving you a complete picture of your communications.

Remember, you can also have fax integration with:
MyFax and Microsoft Office
MyFax and Microsoft Outlook
MyFax and IBM Lotus Notes

MyFax Winter '07 Update

The MyFax Winter '07 Update is now live and you'll find a complete list of new MyFax features here. There are no additional charges, and you don't need to do anything special to take advantage of the new features. They're all available in MyFax Central - take a look!

Here's some of my favorite new capabilities:
  • The new Contact Book lets you store frequently used numbers and create distribution lists. If you find yourself faxing the same people (or group of people) frequently then you'll love this.
  • You can import and export Contact Books as well - this makes it easy to move your lists from Winfax or other old fax software solutions.
  • New reporting capabilities let you tailor your reports to get the information you require, simplifying administration and making it easier to track usage and allocate costs amongst users.
  • New security features allow administrators to control access rights for each MyFax user, to standardize settings and limit the distribution of faxes. This is important for enterprise fax clients, and everyone affected by HIPPA and similar regulations.
