A Reliable Solution for Business Growth

Our clients from the USA and Canada can get in touch with us free of cost, a significant advantage given that the majority of our clientele is from the US. Grasshopper's affordability for us adds to its appeal. The feature of forwarding calls to our landline in Belize or my cellphone when I'm out of the office is a standout.

  • The Grasshopper App for Windows is a game-changer, allowing us to answer calls from our computer with just a headset

Ideal for Mobile Businesses

The convenience of forwarding calls from our office line to mobile phones ensures we can stay connected even while on the move. It's a blessing to have multiple users on a business line, allowing us to leave notes on messages for colleagues and access messages via email.

  • Seamless Mobility and User-Friendly for Small Businesses.
  • Directing calls to anything personal shouldn't be a default; it should be an optional feature.
