Calling it Appia³ – or Appia Cubed – Michigan-based Appia Communications, a managed and network services provider, has a new hosted VoIP offering.
Appia³ is a fully managed, hosted phone service for companies and organizations. It features mobility, scalability and competitive pricing, the company said, calling it a complete solution for office communication, without the headaches or expense of managing an in-house phone system.
"Customers want options in purchasing phone services. With Appia Cubed, customers select how to buy the service and the type of handsets they want to use – all at an attractive price," said Victor von Schlegell, president of Appia Communications. "I was one of the first users on the system and my favorite feature is using my iPhone as a handset – I have the power of Appia Cubed everywhere."
Key features include softphone mobility – iPhone, Android, and Windows; unlimited auto-attendants; find-me, follow-me; customer-managed portal; and CRM and Outlook integration.
"Your break room doesn't need the same phone features as the receptionist desk," said Jason Ulm, Appia’s vice president of channel sales. "With other hosted providers, you pay the same price for all of your phones, which inflates both your monthly bill and the cost of your phones. Appia Cubed prices each type of phone uniquely, giving you the right solution and best price."
Appia³ is compatible with and auto-provisions Cisco, Grandstream, Polycom and Yealink phone handsets, the company said.
