PageMaster/ex 2003 Overview
With PageMaster/ex 2003 Version 11, your entire organization can send text messages, pages, and SMS (cellular) messages using Microsoft Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server. Exchange users may send or forward messages to “text messaging recipients”. These recipients appear on global or personal address lists just as would any other type of recipient.
Text messages can be sent individually or batched to to multiple devices or pre-defined groups of devices. The gateway also handles a mix of numeric and alphanumeric devices in the same group, sending just the numeric portions of a message to the numeric devices and the full message text to alphanumeric devices.
Using the "Inbox Rules" or "Out-of-Office Assistant" in Microsoft Outlook, Exchange users can forward some or all of their Email messages to their pager or cellular phone.
PageMaster/ex can also monitor the appointment reminders for selected users and forward these reminders as text messages to their pager or cellular phone.
PageMaster/ex 2003 is available in three versions; Standard, Pro, and Pro+SMPP. The Pro version adds support for the SNPP, SMTP, and WCTP protocols, 2-Way devices, and an enterprise-grade text messaging engine. The Pro version text messaging engine allows multiple access methods for each service provider. For example, you can specify that a service provider be reached primarily through their SNPP server. If the SNPP server is down, or if your Internet connection is down, PageMaster/ex will automatically fall back to alternate access numbers and protocols.
Support for the SMPP protocol is available as an add-on to the PRO version.
