Setting up Advam SMS
Posted by Cameron Telfer on 13 June 2016 11:16 AM

SMS (aka text messaging) allows you to send text messages to mobile phones. This feature is great for sending one-off ad hoc messages for Customers, or using the automated processing functions offered by Storman to automatically send SMS messages to Customers - for example, Customers that are late in paying their bills. Storman clients that use SMS for warning late-paying Customers of impending lockout have informed us that the tool is very effective. In most cases, they said they'd received a call from the Customer wishing to pay the bill over the telephone via credit card a few minutes after having received the SMS. During the below process you will be setting up Advam SMS services.
