The Syspine Digital Operator Phone System from Quanta Computer (NASDAQ:QNTA), featuring Microsoft (NASDAQ:QNTA) Response Point phone system software, is now available for purchase at Costco.com (NASDAQ:COST).

The IP phone system, designed for companies with up to 50 employees, features a voice-recognition system that can be linked with a company's internal phone directory, and an employee's Microsoft Office Outlook address book. Syspine includes a base unit appliance with a four-phone-line analog telephone adapter and four desktop phones.

"A small-business owner does a little of everything -- CEO, accountant and IT trouble-shooter -- all before lunch," Richard Sprague, senior director of Response Point at Microsoft, said in a statement. He said Costco.com's online purchase process offers owners an easy way to use communications to grow their business.
