What is it?
It is an on-line web application for sending SMS messages and managing a LabsMobile account.

- Personalized sender name
The sender name of an SMS message can be personalized. You can enter a new sender name through any of the messaging forms. You can also set up default sender name, and the application will save past sender names and suggest them for future bulk messaging operations. This feature is not permitted on some networks or in some countries.
- Messages with personalized fields
Bulk messages can also be personalized so that a different message is sent to each sender. After importing the information from the database, mark the variables in the text of the message. The application will then substitute the information according to the recipient, who will receive a personalized message.

Every account displays a blacklist of telephone numbers that have unsubscribed to the service and who never want to receive another message sent from your account. This list is kept up to date automatically using a form that is sent within the messages. The blacklist can also be exported and managed manually.
Results and statistics

- Detailed description of errors
SMS that have not been sent correctly generate an error message. Errors can be due to incorrect input information or telephone number, or due to an issue with the GSM network. The corresponding error is shown in the application alongside a detailed description of what happened, and the moment in which the error was generated.
- Sent message statistics
- Click statistics
Specific statistics on the clicks on links show the results of a bulk messaging operation or campaign in more detail. These statistics analyze all the information obtained from the click and also show which recipients have clicked and how many times. This last piece of information is very useful for segmenting recipients by customer loyalty or interest in the product or service.
- Direct access to campaigns
- Comparing campaigns
- Sending SMS with hyperlinks
One key use of SMS currently is to include a hyperlink. This link can redirect to a landing page, website, form, image, multimedia document etc. One of the benefits of SMS communication is that recipients can be directed straight to the content of the link. The WebSMS application has all the tools to help you incorporate and manage links, and analyze the behavior of recipients.

- Credit balance updates
Users are always kept informed of how much credit they have remaining, and the app makes a record of all expenditure and top-ups that have been made. With an up-to-date account of what has been consumed, users can keep track of their credit and the top-ups they've purchased since the account was created.
- Duplicate message filter
By default, all accounts have a filter which blocks duplicated messages. SMS messages with the same text and sender, and sent to the same mobile number, will be blocked for 60 minutes. The recipient will only receive the first sent message, and the following message tagged as a duplicate - it will not be sent and it will not use up credit. This filter can be deactivated under the Preferences section of the account.
