HelloFax is a fax service that faxes your important documents directly to email addresses. You don’t even need another account if you already have a Google account, as that is the one you'll use to sign in to HelloFax. Access to online documents is also a bonus with HelloFax. However, there are no apps for your phone or tablet.
HelloFax provides four different fax-from-computer plans to fit your budget and anticipated fax volume. Plans range from 300 to 1,000 pages a month. There are also free trial versions for each paid plan, so you can check it out before you buy. Prices are less expensive if you sign up for a whole year instead of on a month-to-month basis. If you already have a dedicated fax number, HelloFax will let you keep it or allow you to choose a local number. You also don't have to create a new account to send faxes from your PC if you already have a Google account. With HelloFax, you'll have unlimited fax lines and users, so your whole company will be able to send faxes.
HelloFax converts your documents and images into PDFs so you can fax them via your email. Each fax sent through HelloFax is also SSL encrypted, so you can be sure your sensitive documents will reach the recipient unscathed. International faxing is also a supported feature of this fax program.
HelloFax's best feature is its integration with Google Drive, Dropbox and SkyDrive. You'll be able to fax directly from those programs without saving documents to your computer first. HelloFax doesn't work with documents from Microsoft Office, so you'll need to save those as a PDF first. Although HelloFax is completely integrated with many of your cloud documents, there are no apps for your iPhone or Android tablet or phone, so you'll have to access the website if you want to log in to your HelloFax account.
If you need some help with your HelloFax account, representatives are only available via email. The company does not post phone numbers or a live chat feature. There is a helpful list of FAQs on the forum, however.

If you're a big Google user, HelloFax is a great solution for you. With all of your Google Drive and Dropbox documents at your fingertips, you'll be able to use HelloFax to quickly send necessary documents via fax. HelloFax is one of the best fax services for online document integration, but falls short when it comes to help and support and mobile usage.

HelloFax is a valuable resource for anyone who sends faxes. The free account is great for casual users who only need to send one or two faxes every now and again. The paid memberships scale up with economic pricing that works for small to medium size businesses that do light to mild faxing. The service may not be cost effective for large companies with heavy faxing demands, but it works for just about everyone else.
