The Cloud is Changing Business

Cloud-based applications are changing the way the world does business because they increase employee productivity, improve customer care, and reduce costs. Selecting and managing Cloud applications, however, requires time, expertise, and experience–resources organizations don’t always have. That’s why 70 percent of top managers say they outsource whenever they can. Appia’s mission is to help our customers realize the many benefits of the Cloud for far less than it would cost if they did it themselves.

Communication and Cloud Based Networking by Design

Over the past 15+ years, we’ve learned that effective communication and networking for small and midsize companies and organizations are not made with a cookie-cutter. They’re designed, to meet the unique needs of the customer. Design also drives the way we deliver our services. We understand that our services must work each and every time. So our network is both locally and geographically redundant, and supported by 24/7 monitoring and management.
