Text Message Server gains A* grade from Brockenhurst College

Brockenhurst College has implemented Text Message Server, the two way sms text communication solution from Avanquest Kommunicate. The College places high priority on good communication. As a lot of students, staff and parents had mobile phones, text messaging seemed the best all-round tool available. Server based, TMS enables one-to-one mobile contact between students and tutors, allowing users the benefit of text messaging from the desktop.

Developed by Avanquest Kommunicate, experts in the field of Business Process Automation for the Enterprise market, Text Message Server is now in its 5th version, offering users the following features:
• Advanced personal text to email - Unique inbound SMS address for each user
• Delivery receipt to mobile phones
• API tool kit
• TMS database integration module
• Company intranet template ASP page

TMS delivers information in close to real time directly to the recipient. With a choice of two way GSM Modem or IP delivery, SMS messages can be replied to and be delivered directly into the recipient’s inbox, a shared default inbox, an email inbox or re-routed to a mobile phone. If there is an existing SMTP email system there is no need to deploy additional software at the workstation. Text Message Server supports all SMTP email with domain forwarding, which allows SMS messages to be sent from an email client, such as MS Outlook, Lotus or GroupWise, just as you would send a normal email.

Robin Gadd, MLE Manager at Brockenhurst College comments, " We are in the process of implementing our Managed Learning Environment (MLE) Strategy, an information systems integration programme, linked to business process review/re-engineering and communications modernisation”. He goes onto say that “SMS is a key technology within the architecture we're building. I needed an SMS solution to run with Novell Netware/GroupWise and Windows 2003 web systems. Text Message Server brings SMS to the desktop via the LAN, without the need to deploy new hardware, which suits our requirements exactly.”

The TMS solution includes software and hardware, complemented by a full installation and administration overview service plus one year's technical support.
