Send SMS/TXT Messages from Your FileMaker Application

Databuzz Releases fmSMS v3 Plugin for FileMaker Pro 12

Last month Databuzz announced an update to their fmSMS Plugin, which allows FileMaker developers to send and receive SMS/TXT messages from within FileMaker Pro. Version 3 has been rewritten and is now fully compatible with FileMaker Pro 12 and includes support for FileMaker Go for iPhone and iPad.

With the help of a supported SMS Gateway, you can develop a FileMaker application that can send text messages to almost any mobile phone in the world, including over 860 mobile networks in more than 220 countries.

Obtaining a SMS Gateway account is quite easy. To begin using fmSMS, simply enter your SMS Gateway account details and start sending messages. It's really that simple. For complete step-by-step instructions, visit the fmSMS Getting Started page.

You can use fmSMS out-of-the-box as a stand alone solution, customize it, integrate it with other tools or connect it to your current FileMaker solution.

So, if you need your FileMaker application to send appointment reminders, marketing promotions, school absence alerts, password confirmations or any other message via SMS/TXT, then consider using fmSMS v3 plugin for FileMaker Pro 12.

According to Databuzz, "a 14-day trial version is available for both Macintosh and Windows. Workgroup Licenses start at $495.00. fmSMS requires FileMaker Pro v12. fmSMS v3 is a free upgrade for owners of fmSMS v2."

If you would like to see this FileMaker solution in action, then head to the FileMaker DevCon in San Diego, August 12-15.
