Sending SMS From Outlook and Google Mail Gmail or Google Apps email

We've had many requests for this, so we created and uploaded very detailed instruction PDF booklets on how to send SMS from your email program (email client).

Outlook 2010 has a plugin that allows you to easily send single SMS, but Microsoft stopped supporting it, so it's not available in later versions of Outlook.

But there are ways of sending single or bulk SMS from any email program using SMS Express platform as a "gateway" to SMS.

It does look at little fiddly at first, but it's actually pretty easy to do.

Here's the link to the new page that covers SMS from Outlook 2010 (with the plugin) and Sending SMS from any email program:

Anniversary and Birthday Reminder Module

One of our most popular features on SMS Express is our Birthday and Anniversary reminder module.

We really should rename this, as many of our clients use it for different reminders such as:

  • Staff Birthdays
  • A thank you to staff for another year of service
  • Annual product service reminders
  • Client 'anniversaries' and birthdays
  • ...and of course wishing clients a Merry Christmas.

The Birthday and Anniversary reminder are very easy to setup, and you can edit and add names at anytime.

There's an instructional PDF on our Help Centre Page, or you can just contact us for help and we'd be happy to set it up and show you how to do it.

The automated reminders are a fabulous way to stay in touch with your valued clients, plus it's a great morale booster for staff. Everyone loves a personal message on their birthday!

So when you're looking for that edge over your competitors, plus communicate with staff and clients via a medium that they are likely to see and respond to, this is a very cheap tool to use.
