Appia Introduces Managed IT and Telecom Services for Property Managers

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (PRESS RELEASE – April 8, 2009) – Appia Communications today announced a new suite of IT and telecom services designed specifically for commercial property managers.

Appia, a leading provider of managed IT and telecom services, said that turnkey access to essential voice, video and data services makes moving in and staying easier and more affordable for tenants.

“When a building is equipped with a hosted network and network-based services, moving in requires much less capital investment and fewer hassles,” said Victor von Schlegell, Appia’s president. “A major part of the move is already complete and ready for tenants to use.”

With a single connection to Appia, property managers can offer advanced phone services, video conferencing and broadcasting, network monitoring and management, hosted email, Internet access and more, all for far less than the cost of an in-house implementation.

According to Jason Ulm, Appia’s vice president of sales, it’s a win-win for both the property manager and the tenant. “Tenants can select the services they need, and save more time and money on every service they choose,” Ulm said. “Property managers differentiate themselves from the competition, add value to their space, and increase monthly revenues from their tenants.”
