Send Text Messages from FileMaker - 360Works Email Plugin Update 3.1 Now Leverages AWS for Sending
Need a Way to Send SMS/Text Messages from FileMaker?

We have released a new update for the 360Works Email Plugin, version 3.1, allowing you to send text messages from FileMaker leveraging technology from Amazon Web Services along with improvements to the plugin when used on Windows.

We like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and as you may have noticed, we use AWS technology in a lot of our product updates. AWS has been a scalable and reliable remote computing infrastructure for our software and we have a great depth of experience in implementing their services into our development.

Recently, we've been working on improving the SMS/text message service for our Email Plugin, and Amazon's Simple Notification Service (SNS) API was the optimal technology to leverage for sending SMS in FileMaker. Unlike using other gateways, there is no need to hassle with lengthy account set ups and various expensive complicated pricing models. In fact, if you already have an AWS account you can get started for free and use the 360Works Email Plugin for sending text messages right now!
