"As travel costs continue to climb and travel hassles continue to worsen, video communication is coming into its own. We hope to help accelerate that change by offering high quality, secure, high-definition video at a price almost every company and organization can afford," said Appias President Victor von Schlegell.
Based in Traverse City, Mich., Appia serves markets nationwide, with operations in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington D.C.
