SMS is one of the most under-utilised business tools available, with applications limited only by imagination. In many situations, a simple SMS is a much more efficient and cost-effective means of communication than a call to a mobile phone. This is particularly important with the current legislation (in the UK) making it an offense to drive while holding a mobile phone. In many cases an SMS is perfectly adequate in conveying the information. The ability to send the same message to multiple users is also a key advantage.
Possible application areas include:
Management: Mobile sales teams can be notified of sales meetings, changes
to schedules etc.
Marketing: Keep your customers informed about special offers, new products
