During our work in the fields of web applications we constantly come up with new ideas. The best of them are being realized by our team. Hence, ROCKET RENTALS is not only a service provider but also a holding company. Some of our ventures are presented in the following.

Project management - straight to the point

Planio integrates several field-proven features, which perfectly suit the task of planning and running projects.

Major features provided are: a ticket system with time-tracking, collaborative file management, wikis and forums, a news system, milestones and automatically-generated gantt charts and roadmaps. A fine-grained and customizable role-based access control system guarantees that only authorized people will be able to see and manipulate data.

In spring 2011, Planio became an independent company (Planio GmbH) and now belongs to the LAUNCH/CO group.

SPIELERKABINE.net

SPIELERKABINE.net

Deine Liga im Netz

SPIELERKABINE.net is a German social network that offers players, coaches and fans of amateur soccer leagues professional tools to document and publish events in local leagues.

The major focus is on content types that are typically associated with team sports such as match reports and line-ups. Content is generated and updated at www.spielerkabine.net, and can also be easily embedded into the teams' websites.

In Spring 2010, SPIELERKABINE.net has been acquired by Olympia Verlag (publisher of #1 German soccer magazine "kicker-Sportmagazin" among others) who have been investors in Spielerkabine since 2008 (see article on deutsche-startups, in German).

FOOTIEFOX

You work, we entertain you.

FootieFox was a free soccer live score add-on for the Internet browser Mozilla Firefox. For more than 200 leagues and cups from 60 countries, FootieFox informed about current matches and every goal scored in real time.

Award-winning and with over 200,000 users every day, FootieFox quickly became a must-have for every soccer fan. Since November 2007, the sports magazine kicker online joined as cooperation partner for the German market and match reports on their website could be accessed through various, context-based links within the add-on. FootieFox was shut-down in February 2017.
