There seems to be an ongoing trend with emergency alerting systems flourishing.
Hoping on this trend, yesterday Twitter launched Twitter alerts, a new feature that allows Twitter users to receive critical tweets in times of emergency on their phones. It's a fantastic move for Twitter since, as Fast Company mentions, they are "making an unofficial emergency channel an official one".
What I find most interesting is that the alerts will be delivered... wait for it... via SMS!!!!
We are not going global or anything like that. But in this week's release you'll find many features you've been requesting for a while, including exporting contacts, pool of numbers available for everyone and low balance notifications.
In this post I'll include the highlights, but if your want a full rundown check out the our Product Release Notes.
You can now export contact groups from SMS Central online sms platform. You'll receive an email with a link to download the csv file. For more info check our online support centre.
Our team is a bit of a TV series addict. One of the top ranked series we watch (and if you haven't we recommend you get onto it now) is The Walking Dead, a show about the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.
If you fear this could be one way the world could end, don't worry! It looks like SMS alerts could give you a head start to go down the supermarket, stash yourself with food and water for the next months and help you survive.
This new financial year has seen an unprecedented amount of new features and goodies delivered by our tech team. Here’s a brief list in case you missed our emails or release notes.
If you are a reseller, a franchise, or anyone managing subaccounts, the Mighthy Web SMS Manager was released to make your life easier.
You can allocate credit from and to the top account from any subaccount; set a maximum amount of SMS other accounts can send on a monthly basis (volume limit); a really cool new feat are default settings, speeding up the setup process of adding subaccounts by letting you set the standard for all new subbies; and lets not forget adding users and automatically assigning them to multiple accounts in one go!
