Today, the mobile branch of Emakina’s Ghent based web agency The Reference and real-time social magazine platform provider imgZine announced a new partnership. This cooperation will bring imgZine’s smart and cost-effective mobile publishing solution to Emakina Group’s diverse customers.
imgZine, founded in 2011, was inspired by the success of apps like Flipboard, Pulse and Zite. The company wanted to provide publishers an easy way to release their own branded real-time magazines for smartphones and tablets. And imgZine was not only suitable for publishers, but also for companies and organizations.
The imgZine platform consists of a content publishing platform, native tablet and smartphone apps and an analytics dashboard. The platform enables companies to create beautifully designed real-time magazine apps for mobile devices, based on existing content. No extra editing, IT or design necessary. This makes imgZine’s proposition ideal for companies that want to avoid expensive tailor-made solutions or additional content production.
Looking to expand their service portfolio and provide a smart and cost-effective content publishing solution for their customers, The Reference/Mobile found the perfect match in imgZine’s real-time communications platform. says:
‘Companies are facing the growing challenge of communicating via all the different channels used today by their customers or employees. Mobile devices get a bigger part of the attention of the audience each day. imgZine helps companies retain their relevance in this mobile era by providing a cost effective cross-platform solution, as well as a secure environment. Social media integration and powerful analytics help companies make the right decisions and act quickly, while readers are offered more enticing content experiences and smart filtering options. We are very happy to be able to present the imgZine platform to our clients starting today.’
