The Indian School of Business (ISB) has launched ISB Rocks, an alumni mobile app. The app, designed to connect over 6,200 ISB alumni with each other and the school anytime, was unveiled by Parliament member Sashi Tharoor during Solstice, the ISB annual alumni reunion at its Hyderabad campus on Saturday.
ISB Rocks is currently available on Android for testing. It will be launched on iOS (iPhone operating system) and Blackberry platforms soon.
Every year, during Solstice, ISB alumni across the years along with their families are invited to reconnect with their classmates and alma mater and re-live their days on campus as a student.
Speaking on the occasion, ISB dean Ajit Rangnekar said, “Our alumni are our brand ambassadors and have always made us proud. It is a pleasure to welcome them back home. For a young B-school like ours, it is important for all of us to be connected at all times. I am happy that ISB Rocks now makes this easy at the click of a button”.
Going forward, the mobile App will also help ISB students, present and past, to connect with other alumni in their vicinity whether in a new country or city, using GPS locators on smart phones.
According to ISB, the new mobile app will give regular updates from the school and also send push notifications so that alumni never missed out on any of the school engagements. It will also help alumni to post jobs and get updates on job posting.
