Choosing your SMS software solution

  • SMSList and SMSLibX are suitable for any SMS communication context:
    from SMS messaging to people (associations, work teams, schools, marketing etc.) to alarm and monitoring applications via SMS.
  • Are you a non-technical user?
    Then we would suggest SMSList, providing a comfortable interface to insert SMS on display - or if you prefer, one of the following solutions:
    • SMS software installation example SMSLibX combined with Excel
      (send and receive multiple SMS from Excel worksheet)
    • SMSLibX combined with Access
      (send and receive SMS from Access database tables)
  • Have you got a compatible GSM modem or phone?
    (check here)

    Then you can buy the only software version.
    Otherwise, if you need a complete solution, you can buy a software+modem version (including a serial or USB modem).
  • You just have to provide a SIM card to be inserted into the modem/phone
    (all GSM operators are ok - excluding 3G-only operators).
