    Insurance companies and credit card companies do this a lot... They get a pool of 500 toll free numbers and each session on a website gets a dedicated phone number for a duration like 30 minutes. Then a database stores which websites showed which phone numbers over which timeframes. Then sales attribution by phone can be pushed back to websites or even specific ads by looking at the inbound number from the TAPI data on your phone system and the time.

    Look for call center software that handles TAPI and multiple inbound phone numbers.

    Thanks but I'm looking for something easier like I buy 10 phone numbers, redirect them to 1 number and I see stats that today I got 100 phone calles 10x10 then I can charge my client for this :)

    Have you tried Google Phones? Do they provide such simple stats? From which number they called etc.

    Google voice doesn't have many TAPI features or reporting features. They only let you have 1 line. Maybe look for a VOIP service provider that provides the features you need.
