Growing a Business with the Grasshopper Phone System
Are you a small business owner who needs to get organized and simplify your life? Between running errands, convincing customers you’re the right choice, testing out ad strategies, and wading through emails, there’s a lot to do.
Before you run away from your business as fast as you can, think about some simple solutions. Like, what if your phone system could help you out?
We usually think of phone systems as another “must-have” business thing, but if you set one up just right, you could simplify your life, instantly sound professional, and improve the way you do business.
Whether you’ve got an existing phone system that’s draining your bank account, need an upgrade from Google Voice, or want to start a brand new business on the right foot, you should consider a virtual phone system.
Grasshopper provides 800, local, and vanity numbers, as well as an auto-attendant and voicemail transcription—and it can all work with your existing phone line.
We’ve got your solution, and we’ll show you how to use it.

So… What's a Virtual Phone System?
Remain calm! You don't need an engineering degree to choose a virtual phone system. In fact, our system is designed for people who are not particularly "techy". A virtual phone system (AKA virtual PBX or cloud-hosted phone) gives you the flexibility to get calls wherever you are. That's right – you're no longer attached to your office landline.
The process is simple. Once a caller calls your toll free number, they're greeted with a custom main greeting (you already set up) and that call goes straight to your cell. If you don't answer, however, it can go to another extension or voicemail – whatever you choose!
A virtual phone system provides a number of benefits that help you run your business more efficiently:
- You save money hiring a receptionist
- You separate work and personal phone calls
- You can build your brand with a customized, memorable number
A virtual phone system is perfect for small and mid-sized businesses; especially small businesses looking to grow. Whether you're looking for a solution that works while you're on vacation, unites a team of remote workers, or want to keep tabs on employees, a virtual phone system could be just what you need.
The best part is that setting up the system won't stress you out. You could set it up in 30 minutes. All you have to do is:
- Sign up
- Record a main greeting
- Add extensions
- Start receiving calls
Just remember that our system works atop your existing cell or landline plan. It doesn't replace it.
How Virtual Phone Systems Work for You
A virtual phone system can be used for more than just call routing. In fact, businesses of all types rely on it for different functions. Depending on how you customize your virtual phone system, you can make it work in the following ways and more:
- Lead Generation Systems
- Employee Time Card Systems
- RSVP Tracking
- Campaign Performance Tracking
Regardless of your industry, it's easy to customize our system to meet your needs, and boost business productivity. It also integrates with popular business tools such as Google Voice and Skype. This allows you to save money on expensive hardware systems.
