The Rocket Alumni Solutions team recently entered the touchscreen recognition market after identifying an unmet need. We thoroughly analyzed every solution that existed and assessed what was good and what was bad. We spoke with hundreds of customers of existing touchscreen companies. We found that the competitors utilized antiquated development techniques, outdated technology, and generally were not innovating. This led to an ugly look and feel and also a terribly challenging content management system.
Rocket set out to change everything about how touchscreen recognition software works. We use the most advanced and forward looking technology. We design beautiful user interfaces for your community. Most importantly, we make it insanely easy to add in new information through a live editing content management system.
We are proud of what we offer right now, and are even more excited for what is coming in the future days, weeks, months, and years ahead as we continue to innovate!
Yes, we are fully ADA and WCAG 2.1 compliant. As accessibility standards change, we continually update our platform to maintain accessibility compliance.
Furthermore, every site comes with an additional artificial intelligence acessibility module. Typically services like this cost an additional $500+ per year -- Rocket offers this service standard at no additional cost to clients.
BACKGROUND ON ACESSIBILITY:
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a set of guidelines developed to ensure that web content is accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities. They focus on four main principles: web content should be Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR).
WCAG compliance is critical for schools for a few reasons:
In short, WCAG web accessibility is important because it promotes inclusivity and equal opportunities while also helping schools avoid legal complications.
Yes, an internet connection is required. We recommend a wired ethernet connection if possible, but wifi works perfectly as well.
The site can be ready in under an hour. Data upload typically takes a day or more depending on the amount and complexity.
We have developed the system with speed in mind.
Bulk Uploading with built in artificial intelligence is very useful for uploading vast amounts of information.
Bulk Editing allows you to make changes to existing data en masse. You can edit text, images, layouts, and more. Find & replace allows quick fixes at scale across entire data sets. Additionally, dragging and dropping images has never been easier.
Artificial intelligence intelligently selects which pre-made and pre-templated layouts to use. These can be changed on a profile by profile or folder by folder basis.
We go above and beyond to ensure our system Just Works and looks incredible.
We release updates weekly! Explore our change log here.
We like to call the system "Tesla for a touchscreen" with over-the-air software updates. We are always getting better. We love everything that we have right now, but are even more excited about what is coming in the future days, weeks, months, and years ahead.

Internet access is required for initial setup and continuous use. However, if you have a spotty or slow internet connection, the software can still function offline after the initial load.
We do not continuously stream and most content is cached (saved) on your device. Our system intelligently handles this process to minimize network load and ensure that the platform Just Works on all devices from small phones & tablets, to giant 15 foot touchscreens.
No! You can have as many devices accessing the site as you want. There are no additional costs for multiple devices.

When you use one of the “Plug & Play” bundles, the setup time once you have the touchscreen mounted should be 5-10 minutes. Installing the touchscreen is similar to mounting a television.
The "Plug & Play" bundle includes the following:
