IRVINE, CA - CDM Dealer Services, a Kelley Blue Book company, announced the launch of the Blue Seal Listings program to its customers on kbb.com's new classified section, The Trusted Marketplace. The Blue Seal Listings treatment will allow dealers with inventory collected and managed by CDM Dealer Services to have a special notation on their listings, informing car shoppers that the information and photographs contained in the classified listing were gathered directly by CDM Dealer Services.
The Blue Seal treatment will appear within the Used Car Inventory experience. For CDM Dealer Services customers who also are Kelley Blue Book Dealer Showcase customers, the Blue Seal treatment will appear on their feature-rich Dealer Storefront page and within kbb.com's New and Used Car Inventory.
