Grasshopper Phone System Alternatives – 4 Reasons Talkroute is Better

Here are 4 Reasons Why Talkroute is the Preferred Grasshopper Alternative:



1. Unlimited Minutes:

Who wants to pay per minute for a business phone system? Nobody… But that’s exactly how you will be paying for service with Grasshopper.

In a perfect world, you would know exactly how many minutes of phone service your business will need each month. But the reality for most businesses is that some months are busier than others. This means that a service like Grasshopper will hit you with expensive overages if you happen to have a busy month or charge you for service you don’t need during the quieter season.

Unlimited flat rate pricing is the #1 reason customers decide to switch from Grasshopper to Talkroute. Talkroute provides you with unlimited usage at an affordable monthly rate. Customers that switch from Grasshopper to Talkroute boast an average savings of $70 per month.

2. Reliability:

If you have had the chance to check out what customers have to say about Grasshopper, you have most likely come across some unfavorable reviews concerning reliability.

For most businesses, a reliable phone system is a must and can easily mean the difference between making or losing sales. Talkroute is proud to boast a 99.98% uptime record and because we connect the calls through your existing providers, diminished call quality is never an issue.


3. Keep Your Existing Numbers:

We understand how important your phone number is to your business identity and bringing your number to a new service should never be a hassle. Unfortunately, Grasshopper charges a $30 per number transfer fee and quotes an average transfer time of 3-4 weeks.

Talkroute will cover the cost of your first number transfer and only charges $10 per additional number (just to cover our cost). Our average porting time is 7-10 business days.
