and Bert Kok, were inspired by the success of iPad apps like Flipboard, Pulse and Zite. They realized that the publishing industry was undergoing a massive disruption, driven by the convergence of storytelling, advertising and technological innovation. They sought to provide publishers with their own branded real time magazine and help them embrace these changes in the industry’s landscape.
It soon became clear that the imgZine platform was not only suitable for publishers, but also for corporates and organizations.
imgZine is part of the ORTEC Group. ORTEC is one of the largest providers of advanced planning and optimization solutions and services.
