Australia has widely used technology. It is now more convenient for us to send our messages through the phone, whether online in the internet or offline by sending texts or SMS or even by calling. Whereas It is inevitable to deny that some machines like fax were being forgotten despite the service that it gives before up to now. Free fax used to be one of the most dependable ways of communication and sending files before, we often see it in offices where important emails were being sent together with the fax cover sheet, they use it to transmit simple documents with no image as it only prints black and white, the more data that needs to be transmitted the longer time it will take for it to send but besides the fact that this used to be the only way of communication, they still consider it because of its convenience because it only requires telephone to use this fax machine.
Fax machines are still very useful today, companies were able to develop and upgrade more high techs that can relate to technological trends. According to some reports some companies and markets still use fax because they are having difficulties coping up with the growth of technology, at the end they said that they were still searching for that familiarity fax offers, they also mentioned that it would be hard for them to transfer and adjust with the new system despite already having fax from computer.
File formats were not a thing back then, PDF or portable document format serves as a template like documents that weren’t able to be edited but still comes handy and useful when it comes to rush of being easily shared or printed. PDF fax was the process of sending such files in that particular format using computers. Given that monitors already exist, they believed that fax machines are still the safest way other than any alternatives.
