They would prefer not to have the SMS messages come in directly to a dedicated mobile phone since there will be several reference librarians available per shift, and this would be cumbersome. A dedicated phone number would be ideal that would then forward the SMS to either an email address or IM account. We've discussed using the various solutions where a short code is used followed by a keyword that identifies us as the recipient, but again too cumbersome. The only commercial solution that I could identify is redoxygen.com's TextMe product. Is anyone aware of any other solutions, either turn-key or homegrown?"
