John, please use this as an example
Ruth, we can expound more, during the presentation steps 3 & 4. From the Telco, the SMS goes to the SMS Gateway Server then access the MI database and then goes back to the SMS Gateway Server with response before it goes back to the Telco.
Ruth, I think it is worthwhile to identify, the various SMS services whether it is one or two way e.g.Greetings& Reminders may be always one-way from MI to clientsShort surveys – always two waysAccount Status Information – one way and/or two waysEtc….
