RTC Nomade

Mobile application - Real-time bus schedule

Real-time Metrobus location at the fingertips of RTC bus network users. Buses and users geolocalisation, Google Map based itinerary calculation and favorite stops and itineraries, all bundled in one time-saving app for bus users. Built with web technologies, the application is now available on iOS and Android phones.

Mobile Application – A story driven by voice recognition

Wuxia is a highly innovative interactive story. It allows the user to live an immersive experience combining a printed book with a tablet application.

Analyzing and recognizing words all throughout the reading, the application triggers music and videos in accordance with the progression of the story. Through the application, the tablet turns into drawing board and into a musical instrument, carrying children and adults into the fantastic world of Wuxia.


This project is in collaboration with SAGA.


Maitre D

Mobile Application – Remote Business Management

Maitre'D is a dashboard application that allows real time monitoring of performance indicators and business remote management, all in a proactive fashion.

With this application, you may view operational data in real time; sales, number of customers, cancellations, costs of labor and promotions, all comparable with historical data. The consultation of such data has never been this effective. This makes for greatly facilitated management decisions!


Benjo's World

Mobile Application - Augmented Reality for Kids

Kids love to play with the characters of Benjo; our mobile application now allows them to see them come to life before their eyes!

By pointing the camera of a mobile device at a Benjo poster, it comes to life on the screen, putting the user at the heart of the adventures of Benjo, Cargo, Roger and Rosie.

Other projects

The partnership between Cortex and Benjo does not end with this application: we have also implemented together the interactive showcase for Benjo on St-Joseph street, in addition to contributing to the production of the new transactional site of the thriving business.


League of Toys

Multiplayer Mobile Game

League of Toys is an original Cortex Media production. It is a mixture of the standard arena game amalgamated to the fantastic world of toys, which combines several key elements of strategy to an animated world, where competition is at its peak. To try it is to risk spending one's entire day playing it.


League of Toys is the sequel of our successful mobile game Tank Battle, which as of today still generates 2000 to 3000 downloads per day on the App Store.


Le Devoir

Mobile Application – National Newspaper

Le Devoir application showcases the famous newspaper’s texts, editorials, news and additional medias as photos and videos.

Developed with Web technologies, the tablet application provides a high- level user experience that integrates fluid transitions and friendly animations, now allowing Le Devoir to own a comprehensive and intuitive digital platform and occupy a significant position in the digital information market.


St. Lawrence Summits

Ski Ticketing System

The St.Lawrence Summits ski ticket platform is a major project that gives participating hotels the opportunity to sell lift tickets to their customers, which can be consumed in three ski resorts : Le Massif de Charlevoix, Mont Sainte-Anne and Stoneham.

For this project, we developed the modules to purchase tickets, to consume them at the resorts, as well as an administrative interface containing financial reports. The project, launched in 2014, immediately gained a lot of traction.


The project was created in collaboration with our friends at Oasis Communication-Marketing.


Coopérative des techniciens ambulanciers du Québec

Public and Intranet Websites

Cortex developed the Coopérative des techniciens ambulanciers du Québec (Québec’s ambulance attendants cooperative)’s intranet and extranet websites.

The platform allows both citizens to pay their ambulance fees online, to learn more about the CTAQ’s mission and offered services, to find answers to the most frequently asked questions and much more, and CTAQ’s members to benefit much easier internal communications.

Its new portal quickly became an essential tool to the CTAQ in its mission to ensure the best service possible in a professionally outstanding way.
