Grasshopper is well suited for basic needs of texting in and out as well as calling out if you would like to avoid using your personal line. It also eliminates the need to have a dedicated land land in your office or business. You can obtain a vanity number and forward calls through grasshopper.

Telnyx
Telnyx is well suited for general phone number provisioning as they have a large pool to choose from. There is certainly room to grow with fax troubleshooting.

Pros
GoTo (formerly LogMeIn)
  • I like that there are differing voicemails for each extension, to keep up with the image of calling a separate line.
  • I love the voicemail text emails. I believe we pay a little extra, but worth every penny for those urgent calls while I am in a meeting.
  • The cost is very reasonable for the value added to our company.

  • Price Matters for the flourishing organization like us. Telnyx [is] affordable to us.
  • Telnyx is very generous in terms of providing regular updates through webinar , free credits, real time support . One most important is that they are not in hurry of closing the account because of minus balance.
  • Telnyx Portal is pretty easy to navigate and manage the customized settings.
  • Among other giant SIP providers I found Telnyx with very modern and humble customer approach.

Cons
GoTo (formerly LogMeIn)
  • It would be nice to have the ability to transfer some calls to another Grasshopper IVR, for those customers who mistakenly dial the wrong number (we have two incoming numbers, one for corporate and one for sales).
  • Likewise, it would be nice to have the ability to forward to a toll-free number, which would have allowed us to work around the inability to transfer between IVRs (see above).
  • Lastly, it would be great to have an 'emergency' switch setting (default off but could be toggled on) that would let us override all IVR settings and transfer all incoming calls elsewhere (either to a direct dial or toll free number) for those rare times when we cannot take any calls (such as a weather emergency OR the one time each year we take all of our staff on a retreat) - that would allow us to send all calls to a backup answering service rather than just voicemail.

  • Number testing: Currently I need to call our fax numbers manually to confirm fax tones. It would be useful to test numbers in bulk from the portal.
  • Troubleshooting: Currently, samples are needed for each fax transmission when there are issues. And those samples need to be within 24-48 hours. It would be useful if Telnyx could do a health check out proactively to gather information on high failure counts prior to customer reports.
  • Transparency with system issues: We've run into scenarios where we wanted information on system-wide fax failures, but when the issues were resolved we didn't get root cause analysis.

The admin functions are kind of confusing in the old interface which was my most recent experience on the admin side.

When I was setting up my account I contacted support a couple of times. They were also very professional, personable, and helpful. Their response is prompt and thorough. I'm confident I can get any question answered as well as help with any issue I might have. That's pretty important to me.

I have not used any other phone services like Grasshopper. I know that there is another option out there called Ruby, which is more like a virtual receptionist but since I did not try it out I cannot compare the two. When I started my company I found the services that Grasshopper offers to be perfect. It still works for us and we have no need to change to anything else right now.

Return on Investment
GoTo (formerly LogMeIn)
  • It's allowed us to keep cost down. Other phone systems can seriously get outrageous in implementation and monthly fees!
  • It's allowed our team the confidence to work in locations outside of the office and still be seen as professionals.
  • It's decreased the amount of time spent on unwanted sales calls via the call screening application.

  • Due to easy SIP truncation the cost of customer approach has become very convenient internationally. We got a so much scaling to play on large customer base. And large base makes sense of large positive ROI.
