Text Messaging at Work?
SMS im Job?

SMS sind noch schneller und unkomplizierter als E-Mails. Aber im Job? Wann darf man auch bei der Arbeit zur SMS greifen? Wann nicht? Wofür eignen sich SMS besonders?

A quick history of text messaging

In early December 1992, in the UK, a brief message was typed and sent from a computer to a mobile phone via the Vodafone network: "Merry Christmas". The following year saw the first text message sent from a mobile phone to a mobile phone by an engineering student at Nokia. Since then, the SMS (short message service) phenomenon has exploded.

The present situation

Well over 2 billion people (approximately 74% of all mobile phone subscribers) are active SMS users today; it is the most widely used data application in the world, used by everyone from presidential hopefuls to kids at school.

SMS for businesses

Businesses make use of text messaging too, for example, restaurants may accept texted orders for lunch take-outs, or airlines can inform passengers of delays.

For companies, bulk text messages can be used as an advertising tool to inform or to solicit opinions, they can be used as reminders,they can help keep track of a sales force, update busy executives, cancel appointments or amend schedules, even entertain. There is however the danger of over-use or improper / inappropriate use, which everyone should be aware of.
