Of course, not every airline SMS program has millions of dollars to spend. In order to use sophisticated airline SMS software, these airlines look for third party software solutions.
SMS Pro™ has been considered one of the best airline SMS software products on the market for the past five years. Airlines in many countries around the world use SMS Pro as their airline SMS software because it is less expensive then developing their own software solution.
When choosing SMS Pro™, airlines have an option to have NorthWest Data Solutions (NWDS), which is an aviation software company in Anchorage, Alaska, provide the servers to host their airline SMS software, or they can provide their own servers.

SMS Pro™ comes in four languages as of 2012.
