AT&T UNIVERSAL CARD SERVICES SELECTS DIGITAL SYSTEMS, VOICELINK
 SEATTLE, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T Universal Card Services (UCS) Corp. has entered into a business partnership and agreement with Digital Systems International Inc. (NASDAQ: DGTL) to purchase the company's Voicelink(R) Intelligent Call Management(TM) systems, Digital Systems announced today.
 Digital Systems designs, manufactures, markets and supports inbound and outbound telephone call management systems. Its flagship product, Voicelink, enhances the productivity, efficiency and revenue- generating capabilities of organizations that use the telephone to contact current and potential customers.
 UCS, which has more than 9 million accounts, will initially install a Voicelink system for use in its collections calling campaigns. By third quarter 1992, the company plans to install additional workstations and add fraud detection to its calling campaigns. Its calling center in Jacksonville, Fla., also will serve as a test site for new Digital Systems products.
 "We chose Digital Systems as a business partner because of our confidence in their existing technology and future products development," said John Dobosz, customer assistance manager for AT&T Universal Card Services Corp.
 Dobosz cited several reasons for selecting Voicelink over its competitors, including productivity, service and support, future product research and development, financial stability and the quality of Digital Systems' personnel.
 AT&T now ranks among the top three bank credit-card programs. Its Universal Card generated $13.2 billion in transaction volume in 1991, with $3.2 billion of that incurring interest charges. A relatively new card, the Universal Card has a 1.7-percent delinquency rate, compared to 4 percent to 5 percent for other issuers.
 "Increased delinquencies and fraud are the primary reasons behind higher interest charges," said Dobosz. "If we can keep these rates down, we can keep our interest charges to customers down."
 Digital Systems International Inc. is a publicly held company based in Redmond, Wash. It employs more than 400 people, and has been recognized as one of the country's fastest-growing small companies.
