FrontlineSMS lowers barriers to social change using mobile technologies. Our award-winning free, open source software helps organizations all over the world overcome communications barriers. It enables users to send, receive and manage SMS over a mobile network. Users only pay the standard text messaging charges through their regular mobile provider. What you communicate is up to you, making FrontlineSMS useful in many different ways.
Our goal is for our FrontlineSMS software to be accessible, intuitive and powerful; letting you use SMS – the most widespread digital platform on the planet – to manage people, deliver services, and share and collect information.
In summer 2012 we released FrontlineSMS Version 2,a redesign of our software built upon extensive input and feedback from those using the software across the world. The redesign makes the software more intuitive, simpler to extend and run over networks, and makes it easier to manage larger volumes of messages. Browser-based and built to run on Windows, Mac and Linux, the software still does not need the Internet to work, sending text messages via a phone, modem or an online SMS aggregator.
