Chief Operating Officer @ HealthCasa Limited
"OpenPhone's product is much more user friendly. The iPhone and Android apps seamlessly integrate with all peripherals and the connection quality is great. The desktop app makes texting customers super easy. From the moment we started speaking to OpenPhone about switching to their service, their team was extremely helpful and transparent, their communication was excellent through the entire switching process, and they continue to be helpful."

Certified Destination Wedding Specialist @ Destination Weddings Canada
"When I used Line2, clients often complained that they couldn’t hear me properly, or that our call would get dropped. After one too many of these problems, I started to seek out a new provider for my business line. The quality of the OpenPhone app is far superior to any other option I have seen. I am particularly impressed by how thorough their customer service is. I feel like they value my opinion, and are constantly working to update, improve, and expand their product."

"OpenPhone not only has reliable coverage (it always works), a simple and intuitive app and super easy number porting process, it also has, hands-down, the friendliest customer service I have ever experienced from a web-based service provider."

Shared numbers for your team

  • Team up on your communications: OpenPhone allows multiple people to call and text from a single phone number. 🔥

  • The line is never "busy": Your team can place calls from the same shared number at the same time.

  • Easily track all communication: With OpenPhone, every call shows who placed it. Every message shows who sent it. You can even see when someone is typing.

Stay on top of your business relationships

  • Keep your work life separate: Line2 connects to your personal address book and doesn't provide a separate list for professional contacts. OpenPhone comes with a dedicated business address book.

  • Customize contacts: Use custom properties and notes to add any information you want handy when talking to your contacts.

  • Simplify and speed up your workflows: Save time by using auto-replies and sending repeat messages as snippets.
