VentaFax Review

PROS / VentaFax can broadcast faxes, and includes a scheduler to prioritize faxes in the outgoing queue.

CONS / It lacks portable tools that many small business owners, consultants and freelancers demand, such as mobile phone faxing and web-based faxing from any computer.

 VERDICT / If you are required to send faxes via a modem and phone line for security or compliance reasons, VentaFax is one of the best fax software programs for small to medium businesses. It is available in multi-line and network options and works with all Windows operating systems.
