Don't Take Our Word For It

“We're all very pleased with Rocket Lift's process and their team's communication. All of the technical experts I've asked have been very impressed with their quality of work and attention to detail.”

Jean Hoffman

“Rocket Lift assisted us in a complete redesign of our site. We were looking for a passionate and dedicated team, and someone we would enjoy working with on an ongoing basis.

Conversions on our site are up and sales are strong. The site looks great and has a lot of custom functionality and flexibility, including a powerful search feature that ties in with our backend web application."

Robert Kinsler

“The team was able to run with the specs we provided, proved to be agile when things had to change, and when they did need guidance or clarification their communication was quick and efficient.

"I've collaborated with a number of developers over the years, and the Rocket Lift team is one of the best. They were a genuine pleasure to work with and I look forward to our next project together.”

FAQ

WHAT CAN CUSTOM SEARCH DO FOR ME?


Custom search takes your unique data, that doesn't fit well within out-of-the-box search systems, and tailors it perfectly for your website’s users’ needs. If your data is organized into categories with complex relationships, custom search is the way to deliver that information. 

For example, if 
someone searching for Thing A should also see Thing B (even if they don't know to look for it), but should not see Thing C, we can program your search algorhythm to ensure users get those results.

Custom Search also presents search results in a customized layout that's appropriate for your information, with your branding and styles baked in.

When your users can find what they are looking for, and it's clearly presented in an easy to digest format, they are more likely to buy your product or service.

I HAVE INTRICATE DATA FED TO ME FROM AN API. CAN YOU HANDLE THAT?


Absolutely. We are comfortable with advanced web technologies, and write custom code to integrate data of all kinds. Whatever format your data lives in, your webiste visitors will be able to find what they’re looking for.

HOW DO YOU DISPLAY SEARCH RESULTS ON MOBILE DEVICES?


We take a mobile-friendly approach with everything that we do. There are a handful of proven strategies for mobile search result layouts. We will consider which is right for your unique information, and select the best option with you.
