eTXT™ combines the power of email and text to send messages to many people at once.

eTXT™ sends text messages to a group of text capable New Zealand based mobile phones at one time. Replies can be sent back to the PC or mobile which sent the message.

It's an immediate, quick, cost effective and simple way to reach your staff, suppliers and customers - straight to their text capable mobile phone.

Once you're set up, you can use eTXT™ to send messages to groups or individuals from Outlook, a web browser, or from your New Zealand based mobile.

Which means you can:

  • Send out confirmations or reminders of appointments to customers
  • Send service announcements to customers
  • Send in-house communications to staff members

To get eTXT™, you need to be a Telecom Mobile Postpaid business customer.
