Mobile publishing made easy

It’s never been easier to add mobile to your online presence.

"Escenic and Mobiletech will help form the solid foundation from which The Globe and Mail will build its online and mobile offerings for years to come. The power of the platform and the fact that it gave The Globe the ability to directly control our digital future were key factors in the decision” – Recent Escenic Mobile Solution customer, Angus Frame, the Vice-President of Digital Media at The Globe and Mail.
