Send SMS at your customer: prospects, suppliers, partners, etc... manually but also automated using templates and the workflow editor for example. Preventing a customer of a delivery? Send a reminder for an appointment? Send a payment reminder? Launch a marketing campaign? Warn a manager of a problem on the production line? All this is now available in Odoo.
Receiving SMS : configure a Shortcode (eg 8937) or a normal number, and your clients will be able to send you text messages with one or more specific keywords (for example, yout product name). These messages come directly into Odoo and will be automatically processed by the system based on the rules you've established...
