PHONE BOOKS, DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE NO LONGER NECESSARY

Parsons Technology Announces the Release of Directory USA on CD-ROM;

Users Can Scan Millions of Names and Phone Numbers in Seconds

HIAWATHA, Iowa, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Combing through cumbersome phone books or paying for directory assistance is no longer necessary, according to Parsons Technology. Now there's a quicker, easier way to access the same information.

Directory USA on CD-ROM, new software from Parsons Technology, is a comprehensive phone and address database that gives users access to the names, phone numbers, cities, states and zip codes of more than 800 million households in the United States.

Directory USA has a variety of powerful search features. Users can search by first or last name and by city, state or zip code. If the name John Parker is entered, for example, Directory USA would give a phone and address listing for every John Parker in the database.

If a search is limited to just "Parker" in New York City, Directory USA will access each Parker in New York City. Directory USA has numerous ways to search and sort information.

Aside from Directory USA's extraordinary speed and convenience, the program can be used to:

-- Plan a class reunion.

-- Contact distant relatives.

-- Pull together a list of prospective contributors for a fund-
 raiser.


-- Update holiday greeting card and birthday lists.

-- And much more.

Directory USA lists at $29.
