Running a business has changed. As entrepreneurs, we're starting businesses from home, shared offices, even our dorm rooms. We work with remote employees, distributed teams, freelancers, and we're always on the go. While being so flexible is great for productivity and cost savings, it makes it more challenging to stay connected to our customers and our team.

In the old days, we either had to buy, install and maintain an expensive phone system, or we had to rely on our cell and home phones for our main business line, causing us to miss important phone calls and sound unprofessional to callers. That's no way to run a business and that's why we created Grasshopper, the virtual phone system designed for entrepreneurs.

Grasshopper has made it easier than ever to start and grow a business from anywhere. There's no hardware to purchase, no software to install. It's all in the cloud. Here's how it works - get a toll-free or local number. Record a main greeting and add extensions for departments and employees. It's simple.

In just a few minutes you are receiving calls and messages from customers and sound like a big professional company. It doesn't matter where your team members are located. Extensions can forward callers to any phone number, anywhere in the world. You can have your extension to forward callers to your cell phone and Skype line, and sales calls to your partner's home office. And with Call Announce, you have the option to accept the call, hear who's calling, or send the caller to voicemail.

Grasshopper will even email you your voicemails and faxes, so you can focus on what really matters - building your business. Better yet, Grasshopper will transcribe your voicemails to text, so you can read your voicemails and save even more time.

When you're out of the office, the Grasshopper Mobile App transforms your smartphone into a powerful virtual phone system. You can make calls using your Grasshopper number, manage your account settings, and check voicemails and faxes, so you never miss an opportunity to provide a great customer experience.
