Value Added Tools

Bluetooth is short-range wireless technology used for interconnecting mobile phones, computers, and personal digital assistants (PDAs). It is the technology that enables earpieces to work with cell phones. SMS (Text Messaging) has no proximity boundary and can deliver customized scheduled messages to cellular devices. The combination of SMS and Bluetooth provides a full spectrum of messaging capabilities and a vast range of possibilities for marketers.
