We are pleased to announce the release of our new Text Messaging System for Schools, Colleges and other educational facilities. You are now able to send SMS Text Messages to parents, staff and pupils; quickly, easily and reliably with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Our service is a collection or suite of programs designed to work together to provide a comprehensive system for sending and managing SMS communications in your school. The suite of programs that make up FAB SMS for Schools are:

  • Web SMS: a browser based application for composing your messages online
  • A dedicated inbound SMS number for receiving replies (local geographic) 
  • SMS Inbox: A Hotmail/GMail style inbox for receiving and viewing your received Text Messages
  • SMS Keyword Manager: For responding to inbound SMS in different ways eg Setting Autoresponders, Forwarding to email, Forwarding to SMS, Capturing senders numbers and storing in specific distribution lists or forwarding to a group of mobiles.
  • Import Contacts Wizard: A handy Wizard to ease the importing of data from your School Management System such as SIMS for example.
  • SMS Addin for MS Outlook: An addon for MS Outlook to send SMS directly from Microsoft’s premier email client. This can be used in addition to Web SMS
