Send SMS from SAP WAS

Hello,

I am not sure where to start since my understanding is quite limited in this area. I have a requirement to send SMS type messages to customer cell phones with a message generated from within ERP. I have done this inthe past by sending an email in the form "phoneNumber@somedomain" However, this case is differnt since like a true moblile-to-mobile message I will not know the domain/provider. Only the phone number will be known. Is there some web service that can be called that routes the message to the correct phone? Is this a web business that we will need to subscribe to? If so, can someonw share some options? Am I way off base?

Thanks and Regards,

David Carr

    This is possible:

    [ http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/EN/2b/d925bf4b8a11d1894c0000e8323c4f/frameset.htm]

    only you should not use smtp but http

    [HTTP CONFIG|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/EN/ae/71583ca544eb51e10000000a114084/frameset.htm]

    Purpose

    The kernel of the SAP Web Application Server supports HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). This enables text messages (pager/SMS) to be sent directly to external text message servers, or to the provider packed, as a URL, such as http://sms-provider.com/

    sendmsg?password=<password>&to=<to>&from=<from>&text=<message>.

    Also check this doc:

    let me know if you need more info!

    hello David,

    This blog may not solve your issue. This one uses a web service to send the SMS.

    But you can have some idea. Please check the below one

    For SAP Business One, there's a pretty simple solution, called SMS Master, details here: [www.on-click.co.il/products/SMSMaster/|www.on-click.co.il/products/SMSMaster/]
