fod - Computer Definition
A system that enables a customer to request that a document be faxed back to him or her. Traditional FOD involves a voice processing system that answers a telephone call and prompts the caller to select a document from a menu of options, enter a return fax number, and perhaps enter a credit card number for billing purposes. FOD also has been integrated with Web sites for access over the Internet, allowing customer to select documents from a menu, and enter a return fax number and billing information. FOD largely has been obsoleted by the Internet and World Wide Web (WWW), as documents easily can be attached to e-mail or printed directly from a Web page.
