Well, because we’re nice people, we’ve gone and done it – we’ve given you the ability to send SMS text messages to mSupply from your mobile phone. We’ve done it by giving mSupply an interface to FrontlineSMS , a popular open source SMS application.
Now, from a remote site, you can text in your stock levels so that the main warehouse can send you the goods that you need. This will be a really helpful feature if you have remote or mobile health posts which need to inform mSupply about a few items at a time. And, because it doesn’t rely on the internet, it will even work in areas which don’t have it!
We plan to add more SMS functionality in future versions so if you have ideas for a way this technology could help you, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.Comments
