smsPULSE V7.5 brings a number of enhancements and fixes, including the following:
This feature provides for a new architecture where the processing of outbound/inbound messages over a GSM array is performed on one server, and message generation and inbound processing is performed on another. The solution rely on the strength of the replication engine, emended in all smsPULSE servers, both the Windows and Domino server types. To ee a diagram and learn more click here.
Processing of inbound messages in a smart and elegant way is becoming one of smsPULSE main strengths. In addition to existing features where smsPULSE tracks outbound messages with inbound messages, you can now perform a specific action on an in-bound message in relation to a specific outbound message, sent to the same number. This feature is activated by the ability to insert a rule name when sending a message. Upon reply, the named rule will be selected and acted upon the new message. This makes the creation for certain work-flow functions truly easy.
Coupled with the above, we have added two new action types: "Save to Disk" and "Send SMS/MMS". The first action creates message contents as XML file on a directory of your choice, with links to media files. The action will also issue an HTTP call to a URL of your choice, passing the name of the XML file as a parameter - very useful as an instant trigger. The second new action type makes sending of response SMS/MMS very easy. This was always possible to do through the "Save to Database" action, but now the only thing you need to do is type or calculate the response text. To learn more about Router Rules, click here.
We added a new console command to smsLINES, to help discover TAPI modem definitions, without the need to stop and start smsLINES. For all the smsLINES commands, click here.
For our Outlook fans comes our new OMS web service. smsPULSE offers OMS directly with the smsPULSE server, which in turn will deliver messages according to your choice of methods and protocols (HTTPS/GSM/Gateways). For end users the whole process is simple and streamlined. Phone numbers selection for both individuals and groups is helped by direct access to the user's collection of address books. Access to the smsPULSE LDAP directories is maintained and continues to be available. With OMS support, smsPULSE brings the ease of use all Outlook users expect, with the additional stability and reliability offered by the smsPULSE server. Configuration is simple for end users where administrators can inform users of a few simple steps required to enable the service on their Outlook client. To learn more about the service, click here.
