Sending SMS from Desktop - Mac, iPhone

Any suggestions on a Script, Software Pkg, or service that will let me send SMS messages from a Mac computer and sync/cc to iphone & ipad as well?
The Apple "Message" Application works perfect ... except it only works for sending to iOS devices, not Android.

Sidenote: For those not aware, you end up with your iPhone having all your text messages, and a Mac Message app that only has the ones delivered to an iOS Device. Grrrrr !  <smiles>

Any help is appreciated.

If you have iOS 8 and Yosemite, the sharing of text messages with the Mac and other iOS devices includes SMS now. It's called "Text Message Forwarding" and is under Settings > Messages.
You just need to have the most recent software on more than one Apple device, and turn on iMessage. It should prompt you to share SMS messages, too. (Apple just calls them "Text Messages"

Thanks Justin. Just to clarify, does that work for when I am sending outgoing Texts to customers outside our company, where I do not now if they are receiving my messages on an Android or not ?

Yes The message sharing between devices started in such a way that only works with iMessage, but has since expanded to include ALL text messages. it works with SMS which can be with anyone using any phone or any SMS service... not just Apple products (as iMessage is).
