I would like to know more about how the sms server works before i purchase it. Can anyone kindly explain how does it works? I would like to send out sms to my sales guys on the move in bulk and i was wondering if this sms server can be any help?

The best advice that I can offer is to try it, and see if it meets your needs.

It certainly would be workable for the type of application that you describe. It might be overkill for that type of application, but you might be able to make use of some advanced features, like being able to accept replies back via SMS from your sales guys that get sent to your e-mail.

To avoid any potential confusion, I should explain that the Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a software product. NowSMS is not a bulk SMS service provider, and it is not a replacement for an SMS service provider. You will need a subscription to an SMS service provider, or a GSM modem, in order to send messages with NowSMS.

The Now SMS/MMS Gateway is a middleware tool for SMS, which among other features, can be used to manage connections to one or more service providers; or to manage receiving SMS messages; or to perform message formatting for advanced message types such as WAP push, MMS, etc.
