There's nothing worse than being unprepared for a meeting. Ensure that important events and key dates aren't forgotten by using text message reminders via Esendex when events within a contact's Google Calendar are upcoming. Use your Google Calendar and Esendex integration to automatically trigger a text message to a chosen number at a pre-set period before an event in your Google Calendar starts. Help contacts prepare in advance and more effectively plan their time.

How the Google Calendar-Esendex integration works
