This upgrade will provide better fax quality and increased security for customer information. Incoming fax transmissions will be delivered directly to a designated electronic inbox with restricted access. In addition, this new service will provide a much greater capacity and less down time thereby increasing customer satisfaction and efficiency. Finally, this is another area where we are going “green” because Faxination transmissions are viewed electronically on agent computer screens, instead of automatically printed. This will also reduce our costs for ink, maintenance, and repair of the old machines. 

While the current fax numbers will remain active until January 31, 2011, we encourage you to begin using the new electronic service immediately. Beginning February 1, 2011, the old fax numbers will be decommissioned. In the event that a fax is inadvertently sent to the old fax numbers during the filing season, we will respond with a notification to use the new fax numbers. 

We will be updating fax number references in all internal/external telecom and print media with our new Faxination numbers over the next 90 days.
