In addition to sending documents by post, Bing can also send via Email, Fax and SMS transports.
- Delayed transmission.

- Replies to Bing or your nominated mobile.
- Failover to email or postal.
- Conditional failover for unaccessed documents.

- Reporting for replies to Bing.
In order to use SMS as a document transport you need the following:
- An extractable SMS address in your document.
- A server side SMS template.
Replies To is who the message appears to be from. When set to No Reply a Sender Label up to 10 characters must be set e.g. BANKCORP. In this example the message would appear to come from BANKCORP and the end recipient would be unable to reply. Replies To can also be set to Bing, where any reponses can be recorded and reported upon, or set to a nominated mobile number.
Message is the body of the SMS message and can include a mixture of static text and/or variable data.
To create your SMS template contact Bing Customer Service with your requirements.
