We have now launched our own SMS service where you can mass text using a phone number. You will also be able to see each text if and when it has been delivered on our new SMS web portal (SMS.JLSSolutions.com)

In order to signup you need to contact our sales to purchase a number. We can help you choose a good vanity number for your needs. Once the number is setup you can start texting. All incoming sms to the number you purchased will be delivered to you via EMail.

The service is a pre-paid service where you need to put in the funds before using.

The pricing is as follows.

Annual Fee for the number: $150.00

Per Outgoing or Incoming SMS: $0.03

We will give a 25% discount for anyone signing up before March 31, 2019.

 

here are some benefits using this feature:

  1. Reliability: messages sent to a gateway are often rejected or delayed by carriers, with this method carriers will let it go thru because they get paid for each SMS.
  2. Delivery Report: You will be able to see who got the text and which numbers do not have text or account is closed.
  3. SMS Web Interface: until today you'd need to login to JLS in order to send a SMS, with the feature above you can upload a phone book similar to the JLS VOICE.
  4. Phone Number: User gets the message from a phone number and not from email address IE XXXXXXXX@yourschool.co

The only minus is that it costs $$$$$$$$$.

We used this today for the first time for a real campaign - a few suggestions:

  • When people respond it comes to my email as SMS from 170000000 - would it be possible to show the name as well? Otherwise I need to go into JL and search for the account.
  • It would be very useful to have an "inbox" in the online portal so we could respond to responses directly from there and have a 'conversation' instead of each time sending a campaign for every response. See textmagic.com who do a great job on this.
  • A reset password option on the portal login page :-)

Thank you!

All of these are in plan and will be added in the next few weeks.

Added. You can now click on any phone number and you will see all SMS messages from and to this person. You will also be able to send him a single message.

We also added some colors. Green is for received SMS, red is for SMS that did not go thru.

We also added some links to the top of the view campaign to be able to see all received SMS.

When receiving an email of a received SMS a link will be there to be able to reply easily.

We will add the phonebook option in the next version.

Gevaldig!

Could you sort the screen newest to oldest so the most recent campaign is at the top of the list?
