What You Can Do With The FAXAGE Internet Fax API

All of us at FAXAGE are proud of the versatility that our customers can find in our faxing service. It's become more than just an electronic way to send faxes - It's also a cloud based solution on the Internet that savvy customers can integrate into their existing applications using the Internet Fax API.

The FAXAGE API allows for the FAXAGE service to be used as a fax back end - integrated into your systems or software. The API can be used to fax-enable ERP and other back-office systems that need the capability to fax. It can also be used to create a white label fax service - allowing you to get into the email fax business while avoiding expensive infrastructure and R&D investments.
