What’s the difference between Dialpad and Grasshopper?

Dialpad and Grasshopper are very different in terms of what they offer.

If you only need a virtual business phone for calling and texting, both Grasshopper's cloud-based business phone system and Dialpad have your team covered. However, as an entry-level grade tool, that’s all Grasshopper offers.

At a similar price, Dialpad’s AI-powered collaboration platform also includes free video conferencing and team chat software, so your company can collaborate without using or paying for other tools. And if you're looking to add a dedicated sales or support team? Dialpad also has advanced cloud contact center features—everything you’ll need to scale with your business as it grows!

The best part? With Dialpad, all these tools are built into a single app.

Call recording you can do something with

Both Dialpad and Grasshopper have voicemail transcription, but only Dialpad has searchable call and meeting transcriptions.

When you can’t remember what a customer said and want to refer back to the conversation, you shouldn’t have to listen to the entire call or waste time trying to find the exact timestamp. With Dialpad, you can pull up the call transcript and search for keywords to locate the moment you were looking for.

Plays nice with your other apps

Grasshopper doesn’t integrate with any other tools. This means things like your CRM, email, and files are all separate from your phone system, which isn’t convenient and is a threat to your productivity—especially as your business grows.

As an enterprise-grade collaboration platform, Dialpad has a full suite of integrations (and an open API!) that can connect the tools you already use. For example, the Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 integrations sync your contacts, emails, and calendars into the system—providing you with the information you need to work more efficiently, all in one place.

Dialpad also integrates with CRMs (like Salesforce and HubSpot), customer service tools (like Zendesk), and more.

Our game-changer: Dialpad Ai

Having analyzed over five billion minutes of proprietary voice and messaging data, Dialpad Ai is purpose-built for business conversations. And not only can it transcribe your voice and video calls in real time, Dialpad Ai can also automatically generate a call summary with a short recap in friendly, natural language after every meeting:

After the meeting, all the attendees will get an email with this summary along with a searchable transcript, the recording, and any action items that it logged too.

And not only does Dialpad Ai transcribe your voice conversations in real-time, it can also detect customer sentiment on calls based on the words they use and pick out keywords and phrases so you can track them.

For example, if your customers are bringing up a competitor’s name or asking a lot of tricky questions about price, you’ll know.

Future-focused, just like you

As any organization grows, their needs do as well. When you’re looking for a new business comms provider, it’s important to think about not only the basics like a virtual phone number, but also what you’ll need one, five, and even 10 years from now. For example…

International coverage

Dialpad is available in over 70 countries. So, if you’re looking to expand your business at a global scale, Dialpad’s for you.

Toll-free numbers

Having a toll-free number for your business helps customers (and potential customers) get in touch directly with you for free. This makes your business more accessible, expands your reach beyond just your local area code or city, and can enhance your brand's credibility.

You can even have a vanity toll-free number that boosts your brand (like 1-800-HIGHER-ED or 1-800-NEW-BIKE).

Automated call management

A few other scalability things Dialpad has that Grasshopper doesn’t: interactive voice response (IVR), automatic call distributor (ACD), and a multi-level auto attendant.4 These can be used to give callers information in an automated way, instantly route calls to people/departments, and serve as an around-the-clock solution when agents in your contact center aren’t available.

Having these systems in place empowers your business to take inbound calls immediately even if agents are busy, cutting down on wait times and overall call volume.

Contact center

When it’s time to create dedicated call centers or outbound sales departments, you need a communication platform built with that capability so you can future-proof your company. Dialpad offers fully integrated inbound and outbound contact center software features.

With Dialpad providing voice, video, SMS/MMS, live chat, conversational AI, and other digital channels, your contact center agents will be able to communicate with your customers however they prefer. With Grasshopper, this won’t be an option.

Oh, and we’ll just leave this right here…
