OwnLocal (previously Seeing Interactive) provides Web-based software to local newspapers and gives them a white-label service for selling online ads and services to local businesses. Seeing interactive creates an online presence for local businesses and leverages the existing salesforce of local newspapers to sell those ads. Its software works with companies such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter so that newspapers can remain at the center of local.
