When it comes to sending and receiving SMS messages on any email-oriented desktop computer, no matter what the operating system it has, the use of a message server is a must. Nevertheless, it will be a misconception if it is guessed that SMS Server is exclusively the thing to keep the solutions apart from the competition. In fact, the thing that makes Text messaging service stand out from the counterparts is the ability to send and receive text messages from any application (email, XML feeds CRM, Web-pages, back-end apps, ERP etc.) spontaneously or on demand. A set of SMS API’s is also on hand for database interrogation and tailor-made interfaces as follows:
Email – Text Message Server incorporates comprehensively into MS Outlook and Exchange, Lotus Notes, GroupWise including any other SMTP email system. Users typically create and send SMS messages in the same vein, as they would an email. Incoming SMS Services messages can be routed to the specific email accounts of an individual or target groups and turn up in the email ‘inbox’. MS Outlook users are also given the option of using a ‘plug-in’ to browse the Text Message Server contact database (MS Access or SQL) and integrate names to the SMS recipient list.
Contact Databases – Create and send SMS messages to all selected target individuals/groups in apps, for example Sales Logix and other CRM solutions.
Internet/Extranets/Intranets – When it comes to integrating SMS competencies into your WebPages is trouble-free, via a standard web form interface. Also, we at BroadNet will furnish you with the code.
