Grasshopper is a legacy business phone system from the early 2000s. OpenPhone is a modern platform that can grow with your business.
We've asked hundreds of customers who have switched from Grasshopper to OpenPhone to share their reasons. Here are some of their answers:
"I tried a few different VOIP products including Grasshopper and found the software to feel very outdated - kind of like a webpage from the late 1990s or early 2000s. I switched to OpenPhone because the user experience is super clean and easy to use. I have all the tools I need and new features are being released all the time."
Founder @ Abstract Energy
"We love the simple and beautiful interface of OpenPhone. There is nothing wrong with Grasshopper, we used it for years and it worked, but in comparison to OpenPhone, it feels decades out of date. In the short time, we have been with OpenPhone it's awesome to see how many new features they are continuing to add to an already robust offering. And price-wise it's a no-brainer."
Co-Founder @ Holstee
"I really like the OpenPhone call recording feature which Grasshopper doesn't have. And porting my two business numbers was super easy. I appreciate OpenPhone's straightforward interface and all the help I got setting up the service."
