TORRANCE, Calif. -- Chauffeur Adamo and its owner, Alexander Adamo, became the first official member to join the industry's new affiliate networking and matchmaking site, LCTconnect.com, which launched at 3 p.m. PT Tuesday, Feb. 2.

In its online introduction, Adamo wrote: "We are a small fleet car service based in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Our office is located just a few blocks from Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. We service both San Francisco and San Jose Airports. Our service area covers everything from Napa Valley all the way down to Pebble Beach."

CHAUFFEUR ADAMO LISTING HERE 

By conincidence, LCT had profiled the company in the May 2015 issue.

Chauffeur Adamo provides an ideal example of the companies LCTconnect.com intends to serve and help find new business.Just short of the first 24 hours mark, the site already has netted 70 new accounts (and counting) and 32 new listings. 

What sets the site apart is its emphasis on requesting deeper layers, or "granular," information that reputable limousine companies would ask of each other when farming out and in. This helps verify the reliable service attributes and standards of luxury limousine service, which transportation network companies (TNCs) don't offer. Those would include insurance, background checks, and professional protocols.

States represented so far include: California, Texas, North Carolina, Washington, Florida, New Jersey, Georgia, Indiana, Washington D.C., New York and Missouri. International locations so far include Germany, United Kingdom and Romania.

The first two months of membership are free, and after that users can choose among bronze, silver, gold and platinum plans

LCT will officially demo and rollout LCTconnect.com at the LCT booth during the International LCT Show in Las Vegas Feb. 29 to March 2 with LCT's web producer, David Broyles. The LCT booth will be located adjacent to the entrance to the exhibit hall at the Mandalay Bay conference center. 

A special How-To article on LCTconnect.com written by LCT's contributing editor Jim Luff will appear in the March issue, to be distributed on the exhibit hall floor Feb. 29 to March 2.

    Great Idea! Have had some problems signing up. Do not see a easy way to "Contact" the site to get my questions answered.
