President and Owner @ Aisle Travel
"We switched to OpenPhone from RingCentral during the COVID-19 pandemic since it allowed us to work remotely without missing any calls. It allows us to have better customer service levels, quicker responses as anyone can respond to customers in real-time while traveling. "

Brent Hohlweg

President and Founder @ Supersonic Sites
"I suffered all sorts of headaches for over 15 years using RingCentral, Grasshopper, and other VOIP providers. I am beyond amazed at the quality and service provided by OpenPhone. I couldn't recommend OpenPhone more — which is why my clients are also switching over to OpenPhone."
