TMS (Text Message Server) gets political, joining up with Liberal Democrat London Mayoral candidate, Simon Hughes to enable the launch of ‘Text Simon’.

The upsurge in SMS as a convenient and fast means of communication, coupled with low cost and accuracy, makes SMS a unique and confidential means of communication. “Text Simon” brings Mr. Hughes’ campaign right up to date, enabling voters to text him their questions, concerns and ideas for London.

Text Message Server, SMS software distributed by Kommunicate Limited, brings this unique means of communication to the desktop via the LAN, without the need to deploy expensive communication hardware. TMS Text Message Server runs as a set of services on a basic Windows NT/2000 server with events logged in the NT/2000 event queue. Server specs are those for a standard NT/2000 OS install, clients must be Windows 9x/XP/NT/2000. Once TMS is installed, any organisation can communicate more efficiently with a mobile workforce.

Simon Hughes comments "Engaging people into politics and voting in the Mayoral race is one of the hardest tests that politicians face in the run up to 10th June. I hope that by using text messaging to get people to tell me what they feel the problems and solutions are in London, I will able to break the barriers between hi-tech savvy voters and politicians.” He went on to say "The London Mayoral election is an ideal way to discover new ways of talking and listening to London. With our city being the most diverse and modern city in Britain, people are more clued up than ever before."

People who want to voice ideas, concerns or questions can text Simon on 07795 328 405.
Texts message costs are set at the normal rate.

Many varied organisations have taken advantage of the considerable benefits of PC-based text messaging, including ambulance, fire and other emergency services, insurance brokers, law firms, satellite telecommunications and rail transport companies.
