SMS Express Desktop Software For WINDOWS - copy, paste, type, send!
Copy & Paste Numbers From Excel and Send!
Free for SMS Express customers
Instead of logging into your online account via a browser, this is actual
SOFTWARE that you install on your Windows computer, and send SMS from the
software. It is suited to short and simple SMS broadcasts, and does not sync
with your Groups online
After downloading the Desktop Software, simply enter your Username and Password into the
settings, and you're good to go (see Important Notes below).
Many of our clients are schools and kindys who have to send SMS to different parent lists every day. They found creating and importing different Groups daily to their online account cumbersome. So we developed the Desktop software for organisations who need a quick no-fuss way to send SMS.
Its most basic function lets you simply..
copy a column of mobile numbers from Excel (or similar spreadsheet)
paste the numbers into the box
type the message and send.
If you're an existing SMS Express customer simply
click the Get Download Link below to request the software link where you can
download the zipped file.
You will need to have your Username handy.
If you need help call 1300 668 287 or SMS 0418 384 394

The desktop software is only for simple broadcasts and will only allow you to send to a maximum of 500 numbers. For larger broadcasts simply use your online account (via browser) instead
Software is on your PC, but you always have your online account if you want to use it
NOTE software does not sync with any of your Groups in your online account. If you prefer to use the desktop software, we recommend keeping a backup list in your online account in case your computer goes on the blink and you need to use the online platform
You can also schedule messages, and your computer can be switched off
If you also want to send Automated Birthday or Annual Reminder SMS, do this in your online account B-DAY section rather than the software
Please note this desktop software is only for Windows-based PCs and Microsoft Surface. It will not run on a Mac
The software is not geared for high volume SMS broadcasts and lacks the full functions of the online account. If you want to do large broadcasts we highly recommend using your online account instead
The software only allows 160 characters including spaces which equals 1 standard SMS equals 1 credit. For longer text messages (up to 3 joined) your online account would be best
The software uses credits from your online account. To buy more credits you will need to login to your account's Online Payments to purchase securely via PayPal (also MC/VISA), or
email us for a tax invoice.
Reporting is very limited on the Software. But you can always login to your online account and view Sent/Queued delivery reports, plus other reporting
Re SENDER ID, please note the software is not reliable with custom Sender IDs, and probably won't work or override your settings on the SMS platform. We are working to fix this, but it's not a priority. You might want to use Outlook to send SMS, or of course use the SMS Express platform
The Desktop software does not get Replies back into it, but you can view Replies in your online account PLUS have Replies forwarded to you as an email for free. To get Replies forwarded to your email login to your online account's Account Settings. Then scroll down to Incoming Messages Forwarding Settings, add your email address/es then Update defaults
