Overview - Voip reviews at Top 5 at Voip Software


Grasshopper bills itself as “The #1 choice of top entrepreneurs,” and that wording is quite deliberate. This is a system designed for startups and very small businesses that want to set up a professional system with as little disruption as possible. Rather than a true VoIP PBX system that’s intended to replace your office landline phone system, Grasshopper is a virtual PBX. It’s designed to provide a professional image for your business, with company and extension greetings, custom call forwarding, hold music and unlimited department and employee extensions, all sitting behind a toll-free or local number. It requires no new hardware, with calls routed to your team’s existing landline or mobile phones.

Departmental and Employee Extensions

Grasshopper offers unlimited extensions with all of its plans. Each extension can be easily customized to fit your business’ needs.

Professionally-Recorded IVR system

Grasshopper is designed to give your small business a professional image at minimal cost. The option to have all of your phone greeting messages recorded by the company’s professional recording studio is a great way to achieve the appearance of a big company on a small budget.

Toll-Free/Local Numbers

All of Grasshopper’s plans come with at least one free business number. You can choose between a local number (this can be anywhere in the US or Canada) or a toll-free number (800, 844, 855, 866, 877). You can also elect to keep your existing local or toll-free number.

Additional Features

  • Call forwarding
  • Call screening
  • Inbound fax to email
  • iOS and Android apps
  • Voicemail transcribed to email
  • Business SMS

Plans & Pricing

Grasshopper offers four plans to choose from: Pay as You Grow ($12 per month), Ramp ($24 per month), Grow ($49 per month), and Max ($199 per month). None of the plans require anything more than a 1 month commitment and all offer free activation and unlimited extensions.

You get one toll-free or local number with the Pay as You Grow and Ramp plans, two numbers with the Grow plan, and three with the Max plan.

The main difference between the plans is the amount of minutes included in each. With the Pay as You Grow plan you pay $0.06 per minute for all calls, Ramp includes 500 minutes per month, Grow gets you 2,000 minutes, and Max will net you 10,000 minutes of usage per month. With the Max plan you also get unlimited access to the Voice Studio for professional messages.

All plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee.

Ease of Setup

Unlike a full-fat PBX/VoIP system, Grasshopper is genuinely quick to set up. You simply pick your plan from the four available, choose a local or toll-free number (or elect to port an existing number), and fill out your payment details. Once that’s done it’s just a case of setting up your extensions and other settings and away you go.

Customer Support

You can reach a support agent via phone/form-based email around the clock with their 24/7 customer support. There’s also a well-organized Knowledge Base for standard questions, as well as the option to submit a request for assistance via the site.
Grasshopper’s support is generally considered to be attentive and helpful. However, some have expressed difficulties getting refunds on services they say they didn’t sign up for.
