    With SMS functionality provided by Ozeki NG SMS Gateway you can increase the features of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. To add SMS extension to your corporate IT system, please download and install the SMS gateway software.

    If you combine Ozeki NG SMS Gateway with MS Dynamics CRM you will get an effective customer relationship management application. Ozeki NG SMS gateway makes it possible to launch SMS campaigns to your customers. In practice it means that you will be able to send SMS messages to several mobile phones even at the same time. To do so you need a pre-defined marketing list about your existing contacts. Your composed messages will be forwarded to all the pre-defined phone numbers in any time you wish. In this way you can increase efficiency and you can save time. You can follow up your SMS campaigns with the help of delivery reports.

    Ozeki NG SMS Gateway also enables Dynamics CRM to generate SMS alerts in your system. This means that your administrator can define events, for which an SMS alert is triggered. These events can be linked to a contact or a user so if an entity is created or modified, an SMS alert can be sent about these events.

    Prerequisites for SMS messaging with MS Dynamics CRM

    Your SMS system needs to be connected to the mobile network in order to deliver SMS messages to mobile phones. When you use Ozeki NG SMS Gateway as the basis of your SMS system you have the following connection options:

    Prerequisites for Internet based connection to the Mobile network

    If you wish to connect your system to an SMS service provider over the Internet you need the following components:

    Figure 1/a - IP SMS connection with Ozeki NG SMS Gateway

    In this case you need to find an SMS service provider who can reach the mobile phones in your area. This SMS service provider should be able to provide SMS service through the Internet. To find such a provider, you can check our website where we list some of them: SMPP SMS Service providers. Once you have found such a provider, you need to sign up for their service to get the connection parameters. You can use these parameters to configure your Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software.

    Prerequisites for wireless (GSM modem) connection to the Mobile network

    In case you would like to connect your system to the mobile network wirelessly, you need a GSM modem or GSM phone, that you can attach to your computer with a data cable. In this case your Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software will operate this phone and will send and receive SMS messages wirelessly. To setup this connection method, you need the following components:

    Your checklist (for GSM modem connection):

    SIM Card - You can get this from your local mobile network operator.*
    Modem - Use a Wavecom, Siemens or Multitech modem.
    Data cable - Comes with the modem
    Computer - Recommended: Intel P4 3Ghz, 2GB RAM, 500 MB HDD, Windows OS
    Ozeki NG SMS Gateway - Download it from http://www.sms-integration.com
    Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0

    *The SIM card will come with a plan, that will determine how much money you will spend on each SMS.

    Please check the Internet based SMS connections vs. GSM modem based (wireless) SMS connections page for comparing these options.
