Our company

Based in the heart of Silicon Valley, Apporto was started in 2014 with the mission of “Enabling users to access desktop apps anytime, anywhere”.

The vision

We all loved the user experience offered by Dropbox – it was so easy and simple to access files anywhere – yet we were struck that there was no similar service for staple applications such as MS Office, MS Project, or Adobe Photoshop.

We saw a need and knew we could fill it: our solution would be cloud-based, user-friendly, simple to administer, and, most importantly, affordable – even for college IT! Apporto is the product of that vision.
