Remote access innovators RealVNC hire AprilSix Proof to promote growing service portfolio

by AprilSix Proof



AprilSix Proof has been appointed by RealVNC, the original developer of remote access software, following a competitive pitch, to promote its offerings and develop messaging to help clearly communicate these capabilities to the market.

AprilSix Proof will support the promotion of RealVNC’s VNC Connect, VNC Developer and VNC Automotive product lines, created to help support the growing need and increasing possibilities for remote access software across a wide range of industries.

RealVNC was founded in 2002, to build upon the popular appeal of VNC (Virtual Network Computing) with the open source community, and to cater to the growing commercial appetite for enterprise-class remote access software. The Cambridge company has continued to grow the business and its offerings to meet the needs of today’s interconnected organisations.

Steve Tongish, Chief Marketing Officer at RealVNC said: “The potential of remote access now extends far beyond traditional IT help desk support. We see it used for a range of applications including training, remote working, collaboration and IT resource sharing, and across many departments within the business. With the evolution of our company we have extended our focus to include the automotive industry and OEM integration.  This means we needed a PR team that has a solid foundation of both technical and business knowledge and experience, and AprilSix Proof is proving to be a great asset to our team.”

Jim Sutton, Managing Director at AprilSix Proof said: “RealVNC has been a truly local and global success story, through its roots in Cambridge where it pioneered remote access technology, to the present day use of the technology in over one billion devices worldwide. It’s exciting to see how the company is helping organisations use this technology to support a range of professional and industrial applications, and supporting the evolution of connected cars through real-time remote access. We feel incredibly privileged that we have been chosen to be part of the next stage of RealVNC’s journey.”
