The eFax Solutions podcasts present small business owners and industry professionals talking about a range of subjects, from best business practices to industry trends.  The series features a cross-section of small business professionals, including magician Rob Lake, real estate agent Dobro Goodale and lawyer Jeffry Fessler.  One thing the diverse group of interviewees has in common – all use eFax as the faxing solution for their business.

eFax is a full-featured Internet service that allows faxes to be sent and received as email attachments, saving time and money by eliminating the need for a dedicated fax machine and phone line.  The eFax integrated app empowers domain administrators to let their teams send and receive faxes, including hand-notated documents such as contracts and agreements, from their desktops, laptops, or mobile devices.

"eFax is the perfect solution for businesses of all sizes and types who need to send and receive faxes but want to cut the cord and costs associated with a traditional fax machine," said Mike Pugh, vice president, marketing for j2 Global Communications Inc., owner of the eFax brand and services.  "Our eFax Solutions podcasts highlight the fact that faxing remains an important part of daily business for many companies, and now, the availability of the service as an integrated cloud application within the Google Apps Marketplace makes it even easier to set up eFax accounts for onsite staff, remote offices, and mobile users."
