CRM Software - SMS Providers

To send SMS Text Messages from our CRM Software, you need to use a SMS Service Provider. There are many to choose from and you can often get some free credits so you can try the SMS Service for free before you decide whether to go ahead with that SMS Service Provider. Our CRM Software supports SMS Providers that support Sending SMS Text Messages by calling a url.

Probably the easiest to set up is Twilio which supports sending SMS messages in 196 countries - see Send SMS Messages Using Twilio.

You can also use other providers by configuring the appropriate URL in Options->Configure SMS.
