Washington D.C., January 5, 2012 – Apprio, a leading provider of specialized technology solutions, particularly for the health, defense and homeland security markets, and Jigsaw Meeting, a platform for live virtual classrooms, announced they will partner to provide virtual training solutions to government clients.

The Jigsaw Meeting application will provide a fully web based online virtual classroom platform that allows Apprio clients to hold meetings, training, reviews and education sessions. These virtual sessions allow government clients to save expenses by reducing travel and hotel costs associated with in-person meetings and training.

“We are excited about our partnership with Jigsaw Meeting as it gives an added dimension to our government technology offerings,” said Darryl Britt, president and CEO of Apprio. “Our clients can now utilize the Jigsaw Meeting platform to deliver rich, media-based interactive training to their members. This is not only a great educational tool but provides our clients with a huge cost savings as well.”
