If there is already a fax there, he obviously is already taking orders  
through it, so the number must be published using some form of  
advertising, that isn't something that you can ask him just to throw out  
the window. Not everybody has access to 'online' facilities at work but  
fax machines are still plentiful and easy to use. If the system is working  
like that it makes more sense to try and maintain and expand it rather  
than exclude existing users just for the sake of 'technological progress'.
'Online' isn't the 'Be All and End All', it's an additional tool to use.
