WebSMS is a simple and effective way of sending SMS text messages to the mobile phones of one or many people. It can be used to avoid expensive or impractical methods of communication (e.g. making telephone calls) and to quickly and effectively get a message out. It typically takes a handful of seconds for a message to reach a mobile phone after you send it from WebSMS.
WebSMS can integrate with external systems (e.g. MIS or database) to easily and quickly communicate with contacts.
There are a number of ways in which messages can be sent to suit different situations:
Replies from recipients or new messages sent to you can also be read in your WebSMS inbox.
WebSMS is very simple to use, but to assist users it has online help available on every page.
Each section within WebSMS has a help icon that when clicked will show online help information relevant to that section.

Sending a message involves specifying the recipients of the message using the To field and the text of the message in the Message field. Once this is done and you press the "Send" button the message is then on its way to all the recipients.
Additionally, one or more of any of these ways of specifying recipients can be used for each message. For example, you could type a mobile number into the To box, followed by a phonebook entry and then two distribution list entries. Please note that multiple entries should all be separated by a semi-colon (;). To complete the message, users would then enter the message content into the Message box and click on ‘Send’.
The Phonebook can be used to store individuals’ contact details in order to help expedite the message sending process. Phonebook entries can be easily added, changed or deleted. When viewing the phonebook, entreies can be sorted by either name, mobile number or “other” as required.
Use the "New phonebook entry" button to add a new phonebook entry. To clear all entries from the phonebook use the "Empty phonebook" button.
When sending messages, users can begin to type the name of a contact in the Phonebook and then the associated mobile number will be shown on screen. Users can then simply click on the details shown and the number will be added to the “To” field.
