Aptas, ISx and YP Solutions have come together to form Local Matters.

Aptas is a deep content organization company.

YP Solutions is a company that allows you to put yellow page directory data on the web.

ISx is a directory assistance company.


Their website is terrible, and is a bunch of marketing mumbo-jumbo that doesn't really say anything, so let me explain:

They've licensed FAST as a search solution, and IMHO, are looking to become a roll-your-own local search solution platform, similar to what Interchange did before it got out of the business.

They're now powering Dex online, the directory business of Qwest.
