We are in need of a program that allows a user to send a text to a particular number which will be redistributed to other users based on a predefined list.
The application needs to accommodate multiple lists of users and an easy web based interface to manage the users. An example of the process flow.
1) John Smith sends an SMS to 555-123-4567 that says "The store will be closed tomorrow."
2) The SMS is received by our web server which then sends the text back out to Employees A - Z on a predefined list.
3) John Smith receives a confirmation text that his message has been forwarded.
In order for this application to be successful, numerous customizable lists will need to be created for each store.
For example: John Smith could send an SMS message to 555-123-4567 and start with a group identifier which would be interpreted by the system and assigned to his group.
John Smith sends an SMS that reads "#3258: The store will be closed tomorrow." #3258 is interpreted by the system and assigned to group #3258 that John Smith has previously added members to via a web portal.
