SMS messages are used by organizations to build stronger relationships with constituents, volunteers, donors, employees, partners and suppliers. Typical use cases for SMS include: informational alerts, deadline reminders, sending updated information to event participants on time or location changes, requesting replacements for volunteers who cancel at the last minute, and SMS marketing campaigns.
This month we will cover the steps required to set up an SMS gateway in CiviCRM. Once configured, you will be able to send text messages to individual contacts and to mass mailing lists within CiviCRM.
Chuck Savino, a developer with Skvare, recently set up the CiviCRM SMS gateway for a client. He will go over how he performed this task, the decisions that had to be made along the way, and the possible pitfalls to avoid when implementing this feature.
