NHS Axe the Fax

Monday, 04 February 2019



The NHS have announced that they will stop using faxes from April 2020.   Surprisingly, over 8000 fax machines are still in use within the NHS in England and Wales.    The moves forces a lurch forward in the technology the NHS uses to communicate and brings this antiquated technology one-step closer to extinction.  While it is surprising that such old tech is still in use on such a large scale, we can acknowledge that sometimes it can be a challenge for businesses to keep up with digital advancements.  Time and money are the usual barriers but using the professional procurement services of an IT support company can pay great dividends in this regard.   New technologies offer fantastic communication tools which can improve efficiency of your business operations.  Modern working practices, with remote and home working becoming increasingly common, require modern technology to keep the wheels turning while keeping your data safe. 

Our IT support consultants have processed hundreds of procurement enquiries from businesses across all sectors.  Their expert level knowledge of new IT technologies will help you identify the best solutions for your business.  We take great care to spend time with our customers, learning their systems and business, so we can help them identify the right IT products.  We have no allegiance to any particular products or vendors so our only focus is on finding the right solution for you.  There are a wealth of new products and functions at affordable costs which could increase productivity.  SharePoint, Skype for Business, Yammer, Delve all offer great methods to improve communication and collaboration. 

With several core Microsoft products reaching end of life over the next 12 months, now is great time to overhaul your IT systems and learn the great new features your staff could enjoy.  It’s always wise to move with the times and make changes before you are forced to by products being decommissioned.  To have a chat with one of our technical consultants about your requirements, please contact us today.
