The benefit for Salesforce users is that they can now access this simple, highly cost effective communication tool and still keep track of their communications via Salesforce. sms4salesforce is available worldwide including the US.
sms4salesforce enables users to send and receive SMS messages from within the familiar environment of their Salesforce dashboard. Current Salesforce users will find the tool easy and intuitive to use as the application has been designed specifically for salesforce and all messages sent can be logged as a Salesforce activity.
