  • Grasshopper

    Sound more professional and stay connected with Grasshopper, the Virtual Phone System used by tens of thousands of entrepreneurs. Grasshopper works just like a traditional phone system, but requires no hardware to purchase or software to install—it's all managed online or by phone. Callers can reach you wherever you are: on your cell, in the office, or at home. Get a toll free or local number and create extensions for all of your employees, regardless of where they're located. Forward calls, receive faxes, and get voicemails via email. Starting at $9.95 a month with no long-term contract, Grasshopper is the way smart entrepreneurs stay connected.

Grasshopper Group Labs is the R&D division of Grasshopper Group, the first organization devoted to empowering entrepreneurs through technological innovation and real-world expertise. We're a group of passionate developers, thinkers and entrepreneurs with a deep understanding of the unique challenges that arise when starting and running a business.

Our primary goal is to innovate new products and services that will deliver tangible value to the entrepreneurs who will use them.

In order to build products that humans like to use, we ship the most valuable features as soon as possible and then allow the software to mature naturally as people begin to use it. The tools we use to build these products and services are the underpinning of our organic product development process. For that reason, all of the technology we use allows us to ship well-tested and elegant software. Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Javascript, jQuery, rSpec, and Cucumber are just a few of the languages, frameworks, and testing libraries we use.

Empowering Entrepreneurs

Think "big"? We here at Labs do, too. That’s why we build products and services that make it easy for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. By empowering entrepreneurs with the tools they need, we give them the freedom to chase big ideas.

Building Breakthrough Web Apps

If it's not going to rock your world, we're not going to build it. It's as simple as that. While our work is dynamic and powerful, we only care if humans like to use it. That's why we believe in an Agile development process that ensures people-friendly products and happy entrepreneurs.

Changing the World

We believe entrepreneurs can change the world. How? By driving innovation, pushing boundaries, and finding new solutions to old problems. By building products and services that benefit entrepreneurs, we play our part in contributing to positive change and individual empowerment.

CHARGIFY WRAPPER The Official Chargify API Wrapper from the Grasshopper Group Labs team helps you quickly interface your Ruby-based application with Chargify. It leverages ActiveResource to provide you with an ActiveRecord-like syntax for accessing your customers' data and subscriptions, which are stored and managed by Chargify. This Wrapper is particularly well-suited for Ruby on Rails applications, since all of the dependencies are already provided by Rails.
