Hi Novatel-

There is an AJAX Local Search API that returns businesses:

Thanks Pamela. Also wanted to know if i could combine Reverse Geocoding and Local Search in one application.

Yes, that shouldn't be an issue. Just combine the reverse geocoding
from our API with the AJAX Local Search API. With the local search
API, you can search near a latitude/longitude coordinate or near an
address.

Reverse geocoding example:
