CHICAGO — SOCIALDEALER, a reputation and social media management software company, said it now supports management of Google+ Pages, one of a select number of companies to provide third-party management tools for the social platform. It’s also the first company working in the automotive industry to be selected, said company officials.

SOCIALDEALER provides automotive dealers the tools to manage their presence on Google+, including the ability to post and comment on Google+ Pages, moderate activity and measure performance. The SOCIALDEALER platform not only allows dealers to manage content on their social sites, it also offers message syndication and enterprise reporting for OEMs and dealer groups.

"We are very excited to use our unique platform to allow auto dealers to build their social presence on Google+," said Joe Castle, founder and CEO of SOCIALDEALER. "Working with the team at Google to bring Google+ integrations into our product suite is an important addition for our automotive customers, and we look forward to helping auto dealers better connect with Google users."
