With their latest feature, your smartphone is now a real fax machine, allowing you to snap photos with your phone's high resolution camera of each page of your document, which the app then optimizes and turns into a multi-page black and white document that you can send to your fax correspondent with a tap of the screen. A customizable cover page can also be included.
To explain it quickly, the service takes your RSS feed of news or blog posts, syndicates it within the GetResponse system, makes an email newsletter out of the posts (as chosen by parameters set by you), and sends it out to all your subscribers on a set time schedule.

Many companies use Zendesk as their email ticketing and support platform, which helps staff keep track of support and sales emails and provides far more control over assigned tasks and the time it takes for the customer to get a response.
Harvest Invoicing, an online billing platform, has just announced an integration with Zendesk, allowing staff to track time spent on each support or sales ticket by starting a timer directly within Zendesk itself. The timer then adds the ticket numbers to staff notes and matches the open ticket with it's related project and task automatically.
RingCentral has just unveiled their new service called CloudFax, which allows RingCentral Fax users to send documents via fax directly from documents stored in Box, DropBox, or Google Docs. According to RingCentral, this is "the first ever cloud-based, fully integrated fax service".
Free for all RingCentral customers, RingCentral CloudFax allows users to fax their Box, Dropbox or Google Docs documents to multiple recipients, attach multiple documents and even schedule faxes for future delivery.
FreshBooks has recently improved their automated recurring billing features. Recurring billing allows you to send a scheduled invoice to a customer on a specified date interval, but until now has been limited to static pre-set amounts. This is useful when you need to bill for the same item or service on a regular basis, such as a recurring monthly fee; but not so much for people who bill for a variable amount of hours worked and expenses.
With the billable hours and expenses tracking services that FreshBooks offers, you can now create a recurring billing profile that will automatically generate a new invoice for your client on a schedule that you choose. You can also decide whether you want to have the invoice saved as a draft for review before it is emailed to the client, or have it sent immediately after it has been generated.
