provides a way to send SMS messages using Microsoft Excel from
any computer in your office. All
you have to do is to set up the Message server on one of the computers. After
you have installed the software, you can send messages following these steps:
When you finished the installation of Message Server, open the Excel database. You can reach it on this link:

(Note: international format means: phone numbers begins with a plus sign and the country code without using any spaces e.g.: +36201234567)
