Grasshopper is a business VoIP system that allows companies to choose a virtaul phone number, custom greeting, and call answering rules to forward calls to other devices. It allows small businesses stay competitive without investing in a pricey business phone system. Their virtual phone system is designed to quickly be installed on either desktops or smartphones within minutes. Grasshopper hosts all of the data and routine hardware setup to allow businesses to start making and receiving phone calls without a major investment.
The way that Grasshopper’s business phone system works is that when customers dial the number you’ve chosen, Grasshopper routes the call to whatever device or desktop you’ve set up to receive that call. Customers connect with a business phone number without realizing they’re connecting to your device. Calls are marked as business calls so that you know when you’re receiving a business call versus a personal call.
