What is the cost per month? They don't list pricing.

Update: I called their sales department and they were very unclear about pricing. The rep told me it would be $3-6 per unit per month, but that there is also a $100 minimum. I asked her to clarify if that was per year, per month, per unit, etc. At first she first said it was $100 minimum per year but they said it "might be" $100 per month. She didn't know if that was per unit or per company. Anyway, she clearly didn't know; her goal was to have me make an appointment and go through the demo process, etc. etc.

Final Update: Akia called me back shortly after my conversation with the first rep. They apologized for the misinformation from the first rep, then told me the cost is $119 / month for the basic service. I'm still not sure if that is per unit or not, but their pricing is clearly much higher than the OR text pricing.
