Central Michigan Directories

We are making it easier to search, discover and share shopping information about local merchants and service providers.

Central Michigan Directories, Inc., the publishers of CMD Phone Books in Isabella & Gratiot and Clare & Gladwin Counties in Michigan announced today that its Internet site will be re-launched with a new Internet Yellow Pages solution designed and hosted by Innovectra.

“Since 1989 we’ve been providing local residents and area consumers with directories that are more user-friendly. We are doing the same thing on the Internet by making it easier to search, discover and share shopping information about merchants and service providers,” said Dave Pety, general manager of CMD Phone Books.

CMD’s new Internet Yellow Pages will feature search engine friendly, business profile pages of participating businesses with links to Yellow Pages ads from the phone books, company web sites, e-mail, maps, driving directions, videos, coupons and more.

“Our goal is to make the CMD Phone Book Internet site an integral part of the local communities they serve,” said Thomas C. Lewis, president and CEO at Innovectra.

Coming soon, the new CMD Phone Book site will be searchable online via the publisher Home Page at, where users can search on their computers or mobile device by keyword and community to find exactly what they are looking for including restaurants, autos, doctors, motels and attorneys. The Local Search widget and Share It features enable CMD Phone Books users to locate the best of what the Central Michigan area has to offer, and share with their family, friends and neighbors.
