Oh my god. It's full of code!

How much would you pay for SMS from Salesforce?

Hey all.
So I have in my hands, a full blown project that allows for you to configure workflow rules that send SMS messages, using Twilio. I am thinking of posting it in the appexchange, but have never done anything like that before. I think I just want to do a single license, pay once, it’s yours forever (just to keep things simple). How much would you/your company pay for such an application? It also comes with developer resource, and a handy help guide 😛 You can send SMS from workflow rules, email messages, manual creation, from a custom button/link click, calling of an apex method from your own code, and possibly even via a get/post request to a URL. It can also accept inbound SMS messages, and attempts to tie them to a contact, and even gives some geographic location info of the source. Sound like something you’d like? Should I post it in the app exchange? Anyone done this before? Advice?

  1. I have some experience building SMS apps in Salesforce.com (albeit with less sexy interfaces than Twillio :-), and I have a fair amount of experience with building apps for the AppExchange, so I’d be happy to connect with you to talk about the joys and tribulations of becoming an AppExchange ISV. Shoot me an e-mail and we can set something up…

    One question: can I use my own sms-service provider with your app? If so, SOLD. If not, I have to carry on building my own 😦

    • My app pretty much is built around using Twilio, I think trying to use a different provider would essentially be a rewrite. Sorry.
