Office-less global minds
We’re a team of global minds with ambitious plans to help magazine publishers compete. While at it we are also passionate about spending time with friends and family. RunMags operates as an office-less company with talented contributors all over the world … many of us love to travel to live in and experience new cultures.
Our mission is to make modern magazine publishing manageable and profitable
We believe magazines serve an important purpose in educating and entertaining people. We also believe that there’s a set of Critical Success Factors that are vital for profitable magazine publishing. They are vital for a strategy to be successful and either make or breaks the success of the strategy.
Digital does not exclude print
Operating a lean and digitized business model in the cloud is one of the Critical Success Factors for a publishing business. RunMags was born in the cloud and our software platform is built for a workforce that thrives in a transparent and innovative environment. Your teams can operate in a remote-first business environment and our rapid release schedule provides new features on an ongoing basis without causing business interruptions.
It’s important to point out that a digitized business model does not exclude print publishing. On the contrary, the print will always be a great communication channel for reaching readers while they exclusively spend their attention on the magazine. It’s just that core business processes for operating print magazines have to be digitized and integrated with all other online and in-person communication channels.
Earning the trust of advertisers and consumers
We've built RunMags with the best technology available and we constantly strive to improve our platform. With RunMags, your customer-facing portals, offerings, and payment gateways will always respond and adapt to how the customer wants to engage and present your brand as a forward-looking media partner.

Content will always be King but Trust will be Queen in a world of information overload.

Our business runs Google G Suite
Our own business operations are run entirely in the cloud, with Google G Suite. Code development and graphic design is still limited to client installed software, but the RunMags platform, our customer support and feedback system, our bug ticketing and product enhancement tracking, our website, our internal and external communication, as well as our accounting system can and is run from Google Chromebooks and the Android platform.
We’re saving a ton of money doing that and pass that on to our customers – but that’s not the only reason – we also do it because these Chrome browser-based tools simply kick ass. We want to help you leverage them as well.
We look forward to hearing from you
The key to developing great software is to work close to the users, gather feedback and implement improvements. As RunMags is a 100% cloud-based solution, you will get access to new releases as we are implementing them. You can directly affect how we develop RunMags.
