Officials of Telco Depot, a vendor of telephone systems and equipment, phone system installation and telephony support services, say the company has been named official Microsoft Response Point Sales Partner for Syspine (News - Alert), a VoIP phone system developer.
The announcement comes on the heels of the acquisition by Telco Depot of the entire remaining Syspine Response Point inventory, company officials say, adding that Response Point, the small business phone system from Microsoft (News - Alert), was discontinued by Microsoft as of August 2010.
Through this deal with Syspine, Telco Depot acquired all remaining inventory for sale to both resellers and end users alike. Syspine Response Point is a phone system designed specifically for small businesses that have 1 to 50 employees.
Syspine’s Vice President of Sales, Tom Burgess, said they're "pleased to have an organization with the reputation of Telco Depot handling the marketplace’s demand for our Response Point product. With Microsoft’s End –of Life statements for the Response Point systems, TelcoDepot (News - Alert) has fully stocked inventories of new and refurbished Syspine Response Point products. TelcoDepot provides many partners services and support that goes beyond traditional distributor services and is ready to help provide Response Point as well as the new A50Plus system to Syspine reselling partners."
Telco Depot officials think the large number of Syspine customers using Syspine Reponse Point for their business phone system can rest assured that their needs will be met "as Telco Depot steps in to bridge the gap and provide expert sales and support services."
Tom Grinde (News - Alert), VP of Sales for Telco Depot, said the company is "happy to accept the appointment from Syspine to be the Official Sales partner for Syspine Response Point systems.” Telco Depot has the experience and expertise for the job, accumulated over several years of working with Syspine on sales and support for their Response Point phones," he added.
