This month blog has nothing to do with the Liquid Motors software platform it is simply useful information that smaller dealers or independent dealers may find extremely valuable. I hope this blog gives you some tools you did not have before. Many of you know our goal is simple at Liquid Motors: Help a dealer be better today than they were yesterday!

Google Voice! That is right; Google voice now allows you numerous custom options to control incoming calls to your dealership. In its simplest form you can get a Google voice number for your dealership use it in your marketing efforts and have the ability to control which phones ring at on your end based on the time of the call or who is calling.

Let me break down a few uses of this:

Sales Professionals – I can set my Google number to ring my office line and my cell phone on incoming calls so I never miss a call. Then after hours have it only ring my cell phone. Then if the sales person leaves I can forward that Google voice number to a new sales person.

Dealership – Incoming calls can be set to ring all sales people’s cell phones or desk phones and can be controlled when someone is off that day.

Basically this is a phone number that is tied to YOU the dealership and gives you some management ability including Voicemail. Best of all you can pick the number so be creative with it if possible.

Some info from Google:
Google Voice gives you one number for all your phones — a phone number that is tied to you, not to a device or a location. Use Google Voice to simplify the way you use phones, make using voicemail as easy as email, customize your callers’ experience, and more.
Google Voice isn’t a phone service, but it lets you manage all of your phones. Google Voice works with mobile phones, desk phones, work phones, and VoIP lines. There’s nothing to download, upload, or install, and you don’t have to make or take calls using a computer.
Google Voice will let you define which phones ring, based on who’s calling, and even let you ListenInTM on voicemail before answering the call. We use smart technology to route your calls. So, if you’re already on a Google Voice call, we’ll recognize it and use call waiting to reach you on the phone you’re on.

Here is the different type of Google voice accounts available.
