We would LOVE to have a text messaging system in Reckon that would allow us to send our employees text messages via our desktop computers. This would save us so much time as our employees are constantly changing.

While not integrated into Reckon any way at all, You can use a 3rd party product to send text messages. Most have a web interface and/or desktop applications. They also have a address book to send messages out, so no need to enter the mobile numbers all the time.

Hi Chelsea,


As Andrew mentioned, there are 3rd party software that can help you send TXT messages through your computer (but not within Reckon Accounts).

Some are free, some need 'credits' to be purchased, some use your existing mobile phone to send the message.
