We used to use Parliant's PhoneValet for this, but they have gone out of production.

All we want is to click on a phone number in the Apple Contacts program, and have the option of picking up the phone and waiting while some program and hardware dials for us.

Anybody know of one?

I am familiar with Dialectic. It wouldn't work with my VOIP phone.
It seems that there is a shortage of hardware for this.

Thanks for the contribution.
