Dialectic is a highly versatile telephony tool that unites your Mac, data, and phones

Dialectic is a versatile tool that unites your Mac, data, and phones (mobile, landline, & VoIP) enabling you to be more productive. It allows you to find, select & dial numbers using many devices and services. With robust dialing rules, it determines the call type (e.g., local or long-distance), transforms the number as required (adds prefixes to the number, etc.) and routes it to the appropriate phone. When dialing, it can automatically configure your system (e.g., pause iTunes, change Message's status, etc.) and restore it when the call is done.

Dialectic provides system-wide dialing of phone numbers to hundreds of devices and services such as Bluetooth mobile phones -- including the iPhone, landlines, several IP phones, many VoIP services, Asterix servers, Google Voice, and many, many more. With sophisticated features including a powerful AppleScript dictionary, a built-in web server, and Bonjour support, Dialectic can be extended to support virtually any device or service.

Integration with leading contact management applications including Marketcircle Daylite, Microsoft Entourage, Microsoft Outlook, FileMaker Pro, ProVUE Development's Panorama and other databases as well as Apple's Calendar and Contacts makes Dialectic an invaluable tool for casual users as well as business professionals.

In addition to dialing, Dialectic provides many other key features including incoming call detection, call timers, innovative while you were out notes, and a global Address Book menu for quickly accessing -- and acting on -- all your contact data including email, instant messaging, postal addresses, URLs, notes, & phone numbers. Intuitively create new email messages, look up addresses on a map, copy data to the clipboard or insert it into your current document. It's fast & useful as well as fun & easy.

Dialectic is unquestionably the thoroughbred of telephony tools for Mac. It's impossible to quantify the amount of time it saves me on a daily basis, but it's a huge lot.

For years, my Yealink SIP-T38G VoIP phone just sat there, right next to my Mac. It might as well have been just another dumb phone, because I had to physically dial every call semi-manually at best.

And then I discovered Dialectic. The difference has been like night and day. Now, I simply click on a contact's phone number, and Dialectic does the rest, It even works with my Contacts Journal CRM app — no special configuration necessary! And if you don't use a CRM app, Dialectic's Call Completion routines are the icing on the cake, complete with a call timer and notes log, if you are so inclined.

Simply flawless!!!
