Truck Drivers Keep Moving with MyFax

    Online fax service delivers much-needed mobility to road warriors

    OTTAWA, June 19 /CNW/ - When the key to business success is on-time
delivery, anything that slows the driver down is cause for concern. Time is
constantly of the essence, but there are certain details - such as the signing
of contracts and various background documents - that can't be ignored.
Carriers and their customers rely on faxing to exchange the necessary
paperwork, often a time-consuming process. A truck driver, for instance, might
have to wait in line for a fax machine at a truck stop only to wait to process
each sheet of paper that needs to be sent or received. Unless they use the
MyFax Internet fax solution - the choice Peggy McClelland, owner of Macstran,
relies on.

    MyFax Internet fax service breaks through the time barrier by enabling
its customers to transmit their documents via the Internet, making it possible
for a transaction to be completed on the go. Macstran is an independent
female-owned corporation that hauls produce and seafood between Florida and
California. Ms. McClelland, who is based in Nevada, knew she could pick up the
speed of her cross-country business by finding a faster faxing option and
turned to MyFax.

    "The difference was immediate," McClelland says. "I was able to connect
to MyFax right away and the fax went through without a hitch. I even received
a confirmation that it had been delivered in my e-mail account. The contract
was completed within minutes, and we didn't even have to slow down much less

    As faxed contracts come in, Peggy prints them out using the combination
printer/scanner she keeps in the cab of the truck she is driving. After
reviewing the documents, she signs them and scans them back into her computer.
From there they can be faxed back to the client using MyFax. The process is
not only quicker but less expensive. McClelland says faxing at a typical truck
stop costs $3 per page. Her MyFax account allows her to send 100 and receive
200 pages a month for just $10.

    Easy document management is another benefit of MyFax. Documents are
stored by MyFax for one year - the largest capacity in the industry - and be
recalled by simply typing a keyword while on the MyFax Internet service
webpage, another time-saver.

    "MyFax has been a tremendous asset to our business," Peggy says. "While
the cost savings has been nice, it's really the time savings that has made the
difference for us. Being able to save a half hour or more per trip while
running the business has been an absolute dream."

    Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP, the provider of MyFax Internet fax service
adds, "In today's society, everything is mobile and time is always an issue.
Whether it's in a truck going across country or from behind a desk, MyFax
offers a solution that no fax machine can match."
