2 Create an account in the Labsmobile platform with a register email account.

3 Send and SMS with a link: create SMS with your database including a link to the document they need to sign. 

4The client receives an SMS with a link to the document or contract he or she can sign.

5The client/ provider/ employee opens the link and completes the data required and signs.

These are the processes for this type of SMS with a link to a document to sign. 

Certified SMS

Certified SMS are messages with legal value. They give you a way of communication that’s very comfortable and above all, safe at a very low cost. 

One of the advantages of certified SMS is that it allows companies and people to have irrefutable proof of communication with others. 

This type of message also certifies the sending date and time when it was received by the receiver. Also, phone operators have a receipt return feature that signals the message has arrived. This is very similar to a certified letter or a fax.

Signing documents via SMS. Uncertified SMS

On the other hand, if you only need to send informative documentation or notifications, then uncertified SMS is enough. These allow up to 160 characters and there you need to include a link to the document.
