Our university sometimes sends alerts to students and staff through SMS. Since they use a single phone to send the message to all contacts, it takes a lot of time for the message to reach everyone. I was wondering if mobile phone service providers offer customized SMS solutions for sending messages in bulk. This kind of service would also be useful in other scenarios. All you would have to do is type your SMS online using their service and click the send button. This would ensure that people get their messges quickly.
