Bulk SMS - Advantages of SMS Communication
SMS messaging is a text-based communication tool that enables a user to send short messages to another user. The service is available on all modern phones and sms capable tablets. Normally one short message is 160 characters long. Several messages can however be joined and sent as one long message.
Text messaging has some advantages over other means of communication.
