I'm looking for a solution that would allow travelers to conveniently scan documents and fax/email the scanned documents at minimal cost.
I work as a salesman, and have to travel every week. I'm old school so I still generate my documents by writing and fax them to my employer (!) . My boss now wants to reduce the cost of faxing by having me send the document in digitally instead.
At first I was thinking about taking a picture of my hand-written documents, but since it's a hand-written, it probably doesn't look too good.
I type quite slow, so I thought it'd be best if I scan the document instead of emailing.
This is a pretty open question, but probably I'm looking for:
- A super portable (read: easy to carry) scanner that can scan my documents
- If possible, I would like to fax the scanned documents as opposed to emailing (yes, our company is pretty old school). What vendors would allow me to fax via internet?
The tools that I have available now are:
- A laptop (hehe, this one is not old)
- A smartphone with internet access
I tether my smartphone, so I get internet access wherever I go.
What else would I need?
