DT SMS is a powerful Joomla component designed to automate SMS messaging with Joomla-based applications and users with smartphones/tablets. DT SMS can enable your Joomla installation to behave like a smart device by sending and receiving SMS messages, but unlike smart devices, it is designed to scale up and support high volume messaging. DT SMS integrates with Twilio’s gateway which means you will be required to sign up for a Twilio account for SMS messaging.
Because DT SMS is engineered for high volume SMS activity, there are several important integrations provided with the extension. When using high volume messaging, the method of integration centers around lists of recipients. If you can create a list of recipients, even with a simple CSV file, then you can import and manage SMS lists within DT SMS. Messages can be sent to those lists based on scheduled times, on demand or upon the occurrence of specified actions.
While DT SMS is designed for large volume messaging activity, it includes several critical features that enable you to monitor security and process activity within your Joomla website. Through a simple plugin, you can configure lists of recipients to receive alerts when certain security instances occur or if content in your Joomla website has been changed. With DT SMS, you can keep your customers engaged and informed and alert yourself also to activities taking place within your website.
