Boston, Mass. (PRUnderground) April 15th, 2016

Rocket Farm Studios, a premier mobile application development firm, announced it has been selected as a finalist in the Most Innovative use of IoT (Internet of Things) category for its Yankee Candle Scent Systems app at the upcoming 20th Annual MITX Awards. Held annually by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, the awards recognize excellence in concepts and creations in marketing and technology produced or developed in New England.

The Yankee Candle Scent Systems app ( is a revolutionary technology that takes advantage of the IoT movement bringing scent technology into the 21st century.  Using this technology, service companies such as those in retail and hospitality can integrate consistent high-quality ambient scent into their brand management program through connected devices.

“With Scent Systems, our goal was to create an intelligent mobile solution that could control scenting specific zones of an environment consistently over time and place, minute by minute, hour by hour,” said Dan Katcher, founder and CEO of Rocket Farm Studios. “Using a mobile device, Yankee Candle clients are able to create a branding experience that is precisely controlled and monitored.”

Said Todd Becker, COO of Yankee Candle Scent Systems ,“IoT gave us further connection of technology to the end point of our business. It makes the supply chain to customer process smoother, allowing us to replace cartridges not too late or too early. Service techs can be there because the stations called for one automatically. Our competitors just can’t do anything like that.”

Rocket Farm Studios will be recognized with the other finalists at the upcoming MITX Awards Ceremony on May 25th at the Westin Waterfront.  Since 1996 the MITX Awards have grown to become the largest and most prestigious awards competition in the country showcasing the best creative marketing and technological accomplishments emerging from New England. This year over 120 senior leaders from Boston businesses judged entries for the 33 MITX award categories.


This year’s ceremony will include host, Boston legend and comedic superstar Lenny Clarke, technology demos from finalists, select final round judging, networking, and the presentation to the winners of the prestigious MITX Awards. Tickets can be purchased at
