BulkSMS Gateway for ClickDimensions
It's possible to send and receive SMS messages within ClickDimensions using the BulkSMS platform. You can send SMS text messages in bulk to Microsoft CRM marketing lists. The messages are sent to the mobile numbers of the lead and/or contact records on the marketing lists. Any replies will be returned to your ClickDimensions account. CRM activity records will be created to document that the SMS messages were sent and received.

ClickDimensions Help Page Amendments
PLEASE NOTE that there are two errors on the ClickDimensions help page. These are:
HTTPS / HTTP
Under the section titled “BulkSMS Settings”, it is noted that the information should be sent via HTTPS:
For example: https://azuresendevents.cloudapp.net/BulkSMSEventsListener.aspx?username=YYYY&pass=XXX. At this time, ClickDimensions are only able to accept information via HTTP. The URL above therefore needs to start with http.
Passwords & Relays
Also under “BulkSMS Settings”, your password is not required for the relays to ClickDimensions.
The URL example above should therefore look like this (taking error 1 and 2 into account): http://azuresendevents.cloudapp.net/BulkSMSEventsListener.aspx?username=YYYY.
The other URLs referred to on this same ClickDimensions help page should be similarly corrected. The correct URLs need to be added to your BulkSMS user profile here.
