Traverse City, Michigan (PRESS RELEASE – August 15, 2009) – Does business VoIP really work? And does it really save that much time and money?

Appia Communications announced a new case study today that answers these questions and more, demonstrating some of the unique possibilities and benefits of Internet Protocol (IP) technology for businesses.

The case study features The New York Blower Company (NYB), a leading manufacturer of industrial fans and blowers for over 100 years. Faced with an expensive replacement of its aging phone system, NYB turned to Appia Partner STRYD Technologies with three basic goals:

• Stop having to revamp or replace its phone system every five years
• Control overall costs
• Find a better way to communicate with mobile supervisors on the factory floor

STRYD suggested a hosted Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution from Appia, but New York Blower was skeptical. It had been monitoring VoIP technology for nearly a decade, and had always been unimpressed.

What would it take? See how an unusual demonstration, a sizeable return on investment, and some surprising additional benefits led NYB to implement a custom Appia solution across all three of its facilities in Illinois and Indiana.

The entire case study can be read and downloaded for free at http://www.appiaservices.com.
