About our SMS Outlook Add-in /plugin
As we use more and more mobile solutions, text messaging has become the most reliable way to reach people as quickly as possible. However, sending text messages from a mobile phone involves a lot of typing and loses the ability to document the communication at a later date.
With our Outlook Add-in, you can easily send messages to both groups and individual recipients, and you can easily save and document your communication via Outlook.

Send SMS via contacts and groups in Outlook
Our SMS Add-in is developed specifically for Outlook with the standards that Microsoft requires of their Add-ins. This means that with a quick installation of our plugin, you will have the functionality built into your Outlook menu. Via a SureSMS menu in your top bar, you can send SMS and group SMS directly to your existing contacts or add new ones. Simply enter your contact name or phone number, type the message and hit send.
An SMS can be up to 160 characters (set by the telecom companies), but from our SMS sender you can send up to 800 characters. If the message is longer, it will be correspondingly more expensive, just like from your regular phone.
Documentation and Journaling
When you send SMS from your Outlook client via SureSMS, we have made sure that your messages are automatically saved. Under settings, you can decide which folder the SMS messages are saved in, and any journaling system can retrieve the messages from the folder.
This means that, just like your other communication, they can be logged and retrieved when documentation is needed at a later date. This fulfills the obligation to keep records, which applies to all public and municipal institutions.
Select Sender ID
With our new SMS to Outlook Version 1.4, there are several new options for selecting a sender ID. You can now send from your own mobile number and receive replies on your mobile for free. If you want to receive replies in your Outlook so that it can be documented later, you need a 2-way SMS Solution from us. It's quick and easy to set up. See the prices on our SMS Solutions here. Last but not least, you can choose to send from your company name. This can be of great value to companies or organizations for branding or campaigns. If you want multiple sender IDs, please contact us. For security reasons, our users cannot create new ones themselves, but we can do it in minutes.
