Sydney, Australia – September 15, 2020 – Databuzz today announced fmMMS, a FileMaker solution that lets you send and receive MMS messages from the FileMaker Platform.
fmMMS allows you to send MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages from the FileMaker Platform to almost any mobile phone in the world via one of the supported MMS Gateways, reaching over 1,000 mobile networks in more than 220 countries. MMS allows you to add any kind of multimedia content to your messages, such as images, QR codes, audio and video which are sent directly to the recipient’s phone.
MMS is perfect for sending promotional messages about new products or services, coupons or special offers, special event invitations, tickets (including QR codes) and real estate property information. With MMS you get the benefits of SMS such as high open rates compared to email, with the ability to add multimedia content to your messages, add a Subject line to act like a message headline and increase the amount of text you can send. MMS messages appear more visually appealing to the recipient and can lead to higher engagement with your customers*.
fmMMS features include:
- works with FileMaker Pro 16 or later
- uses all native FileMaker scripts and functions (no plug-ins required)
- completely unlocked for you to integrate into your own FileMaker solution
- can be hosted by FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Server
- works with Macintosh and Windows
“We’ve been helping customers integrate SMS with their FileMaker solutions for over 20 years and have had many requests for MMS integration,” said Andrew Duncan, CEO of Databuzz. “We’ve made fmMMS as easy to use and integrate as fmSMS – we can’t wait to see how our customers use fmMMS.”

- Send single and bulk MMS messages (messages are typically delivered in under 15 seconds)
