Case Study: TxtLocal.co.uk & ActiveDataTools

We're delighted to publish a case study on using ActiveDataTools in conjunction with the TxtLocal.co.uk SMS service. In this case study, you'll read how one of our customers sent a small number of text messages to some prospects and within two hours had received a substantial number of orders!

ActiveDataTools integrates fully with this service, enabling you to send bulk SMS messages to clients, employees, prospects, etc., directly from an open worksheet.

Also, I recently wrote a blog article on how to send SMS using ActiveDataTools here:

Send bulk SMS directly from ActiveDataTools

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with Txtlocal.co.uk to provide bulk SMS messaging directly from ActiveDataTools.

This fantastic new feature means that you can now open up some data (from any data source supported by ActiveDataTools), filter and query to find the data you want to work with, cleanse to remove invalid mobile phone numbers and then send bulk messages to all recipients.

It’s incredibly fast, reliable and easy to do. The possibilities are endless:

  • Send text messages to customers to inform them about a new product or service
  • Message your staff to warn them about traffic or urgent issues.
  • Reply by text to prospects enquiring on your website
  • Send reminders, warnings, notifications, alarms, etc.

The whole process is completely integrated in to ActiveDataTools. Let’s step through the process.

To start, let’s open up a worksheet containing our customers’ details. In this example, all we need is each customer’s mobile phone number.

Now that we’ve got the data on screen, we can use ActiveDataTools’s data cleansing features to tidy up incorrect mobile numbers, or we could use the filtering and querying features to create a subset of the full data. Once we’ve cleaned up the data, the next step is to click the “Send Bulk SMS” button.

The first time you do this, most of the options will be greyed out because we need to set up our TxtLocal account. Let’s click on the Set up my TxtLocal account button…
