Outlook SMS is a plug-in that lets you send and receive SMS messages right from Outlook and Lync.
Outlook SMS lets you send SMS messages from your desktop in a convenient way. You manage your SMS communication in the same way that you manage your emails. Then you also keep all of your communication in one place. But above all, you can quickly and easily communicate with your Outlook contacts, whether they are customers, colleagues, or members of a loyalty club.
With Outlook SMS, you send and receive SMS messages from your desktop as easily as email. You can send to single recipients or you can send bulk SMS to as many recipients you want. And when you receive answers to your computer they will display sent and received SMS messages as a conversation.
At your disposal you have the address book in Exchange with global and local address lists. Of course you can also enter the phone numbers you want to send to manually.
You can create templates for messages you send often, and you can optionally also include recipients to your template.
You can follow the send process and the status of your SMS messages to see if they are not sent, pending, sent and finally delivered to the recipient (terminated).
The add-in for Outlook SMS features a standardized MSI package and can easily be rolled out to an unlimited number of clients using standard software deployment tools. User accounts are automatically created during installation.
Administrators can restrict the number of SMS messages allowed to be sent by each user in a specified time frame.
