Telecom New Zealand launches integrated Outlook and SMS tool
According to Telecom New Zealand, email-to-text messaging for business has taken a major leap forward with the launch of Telecom’s next-generation eTXT service.

eTXT offers an immediate, cost effective and simple way to communicate to business mobiles by combining the convenience of e-mail and the flexibility, speed and reach of text messaging.

From most standard email applications, such as Microsoft Outlook, eTXT subscribers can compose and send text messages to multiple mobiles simultaneously and receive replies directly back to their email inbox. For subscribers using Microsoft Outlook 2000 or above, an optional software application is also available to make the composition and sending of text messages even easier.

eTXT is priced with a NZ$99 (+GST) connection fee, a NZ$10 (+GST) monthly fee per account and messages charged at 10c (+GST) for every Telecom mobile they’re sent to.

Depending upon their business requirements or staff structure, customers can choose to set up either single or multiple accounts to match user groups and to monitor costs effectively. Charges are billed to monthly Telecom Mobile accounts.

eTXT is delivered with the help of applications partner Bulletin Wireless whose patented technology enables messages to be delivered onto Telecom’s network. “We work with Telecom on an ongoing basis to explore text messaging opportunities and eTXT is a good example of the type of specialist text applications we can deliver”, says Bulletin Wireless General Manager, Paul Treacy.

eTXT provides a high level of security against unauthorised access. The service also offers comprehensive configuration and reporting tools to customers allowing full control and visibility of their eTXT usage.
