vTail was founded in the spring of 2020 by a transatlantic team with a new vision for the interface between medical products companies and the clinical community.
The vTail app was initially launched in the US Wound Care market in 2021, and in the US Dental market in 2022. These launches helped the team further develop and hone its technology and capabilities.
The SoloComm division was launched in June 2023. Its mission is to allow the company to rapidly expand the use of its core technology across healthcare and beyond - via a series of strategic partnerships.
