eFax Expands In Japan

Los Angeles-based eFax, which operates an online fax and fax-to-email service, said today that it has expanded in the Asia-Pacific region with 15 new cities in Japan. The firm launched Japanese language service last month and opened up an office in Tokyo. According to eFax, the move allows local customers to access its eFax services in the local area code, covering such cities as Hiroshima, Kobe, Kyoto, Nagoya, Sapporo, and Yokohama, along with others. eFax, which is a brand of j2 Global Communications, said it has been focusing in on the Japanese market because the country is under-serviced as it related to online fax.
