Grasshopper Review

Dubbed the entrepreneur’s phone service, Grasshopper lets users build a virtual phone system with a toll free number and multiple departments, eliminating the need for hardware or separate connection costs. Unlike other services you pay monthly, rather than being tied into a long term contract. The entire system is virtual, and there is nothing to purchase outside of your chosen plan. You can set up extensions for employees based anywhere in the world, all of whom can all have their own voicebox, too. Any extension linked to your phone system can be forwarded to any phone number in the world, which is perfect for those working with virtual assistants or consultants located elsewhere.

The system is compatible with Skype, so you can take calls on your computer. You can also screen a call before you answer it, which gives you the option to take it or send the caller to voicemail. One really cool aspect of Grasshopper is that it will even email you your voicemail and faxes, ensuring you never miss anything and are always on top of calls. What’s more, you can also have your voicemails transcribed to text format for fast reading. Also, by using the Grasshopper cellphone app, you can transform your cellphone into a virtual phone system, which enables you to receive calls and faxes from your toll free number while on the go.
