About the RocketCOMS Platform

What is RocketCOMS?

The RocketCOMS platform provides a complete solution to manage your SMS marketing activities. Our suite of APIs allows you to set up and manage your brands and campaigns, use batch files to upload or download SMS messages, and retrieve statistics for campaigns and messages.

In addition, the RocketCOMS Portal allows non-developers – such as your Management, Operations, and Support teams – to perform many of the same functions as the APIs using an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. You can create and manage brands and campaigns, quickly view campaign statistics, and view detailed campaign results. You can also use the Portal to manage settings such as roles, permissions, and user access.

Just use the APIs or Portal to set up your brand and campaign details, then let RocketCOMS take care of the rest, including:

  • Registering your brands and campaigns with The Campaign Registry (TCR)
  • Launching campaigns to ensure your SMS marketing messages are delivered to your mobile subscribers
  • Tracking campaign responses from your mobile users
  • Compiling statistics about your campaigns and SMS messages
