LCT CONNECT I JANUARY 2014 See LCT on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest VIDEO PICK OF THE MONTH: 6 American Coach Limousine Introduces Its Chauffeurs Through Interviews A quick ride with a chauffeur can have different types of outcomes. Some trips are purely business, and the chauffeur quietly guides the passenger through traffc to the destination. Other times, a client may be in more of a personable mood and start up a conversation. Or, they might have some questions about the area because they are new in town traveling on business. At this point, the customer service reputation of your brand is partly tied to the demeanor of your chauffeur. If a client enjoys some pleasant conversation en route, this will have a positive effect on their overall opinion of your service. And this is especially true if they learn some valuable knowledge or have a question answered matter-of-factly by a chauffeur. American Coach Limousine of Chicago, Ill., has started an interview series, where a chauffeur is picked for a quick ride-along and interview. The angles are basic and the editing simple enough to keep the videos at pace and entertaining. A little mood music, and even company theme jingle, complement the chauffeur as he or she explains TWEET, TWEET LCT's favorite retweets and @mentions Jeffcreativebus: Thanks to everyone who came by our booth to visit. We had an awesome time. Met so many new customers!! @LCTMag #LCTEAST #livery #Tradeshow RegentLimousine: Neat read even for those not in the industry! RT @LCTMag: NJ, NY Limo Operators Learn About Super Bowl Challenges how they got into the business and what they think of their job. The interviews are personable and professional, and establish the fact that American Coach Limousine cares about the quality of rides its clients get. Such videos are also great opportunities to highlight other aspects of your company, like green vehicles or self-scheduling apps available, etc. For more information about American Limousine, go to www. americancoachlimousine.com, and check out their Youtube channel at http://bit.ly/ AmericanCoachYoutube.

Hackers Breach Client Data At Limo Software Company [11/5/13] I am a merchant services provider, and I would caution against using your own database to maintain payments information, even with the well-publicized hacks. Unless you keep the information on a password protected PC that has no option to connect to the Internet and/or connect storage media to, the same thing can happen to you. If nothing else, using a third party company allows you to divert the perceived blame. Beyond that, when it is your own servers that are hacked, the fnes are higher. — Tony Car Insurance Companies Use Social Media for Claims Investigations [11/11/13] Profling ...wonderful. — Louis California Stretch Limo Operators Suffer Big Loss [11/7/13] Thanks for the updates and information on this site.

Concierge Approach Re(de)fnes Chauffeured Roles [11/22/13] Excellent article. In the Napa wine country this is the approach for all of the top driver guides. We use luxury SUVs and dress casually so we ft in with the tasting rooms. We keep detailed notes in our databases about which wineries and restaurants clients have visited previously so we offer new suggestions next time. We carry so much gear and supplies in the car for every possibility that it is like a traveling living room. But we are going to be with them for a six- or eight-hour day so lots of things can happen. Clients remember this level of service and return, refer and of course tip. — Ralph De Amicis 4 LIMOUSINE, CHARTER & TOUR JANUARY 2014 OhanaLimo: @LCTMag thank you for posting our Jeep from Quality Coachworks.
