easy to use
Email to SMS can be used for SMS sending from any email program or for SMS integration from a 3rd party system able to generate an email.
AmiCell® SMS hosts a secure Email to SMS service that allows you to send an email in a specific format to the AmiCell® SMS Access Point's dedicated email address which in turn sends out SMS messages as specified in your email.
Emails may be sent from a 3rd party source without human intervention or submitted manually by a user. Once an Email to SMS request is received and all security information verifies, the AmiCell® SMS Access Point will reply with a security response either via SMS or return Email (if manually submitted). By responding to the security response the SMS requests will be authorized automatically.
AmiCell® SMS will send automated SMS reports on a daily basis to the Email to SMS user. The reports will include Delivery, Errors, Replies and Invalid Numbers in a spreadsheet format.
Email to SMS is ideal for clients requiring the following:
No installation and no learning curve. Send SMS messages with a simple email.
No upkeep of an address book. Simply send to the numbers stored in a spreadsheet.
High-speed, bulk or single SMS sending and delivery.
