TELTECH NAMED TO PROVIDE TECHNOLOGY ACCESS SERVICES FOR PENNSYLVANIA PROGRAM

 TELTECH NAMED TO PROVIDE TECHNOLOGY ACCESS SERVICES
 FOR PENNSYLVANIA PROGRAM


Program Will Positively Impact Economic Development in Pennsylvania
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Teltech Resource Network announced today that the company has been named to provide the service delivery for a Pennsylvania technology access program. The effort is designed to promote the survival and growth of the state's small businesses by providing them with needed technical and business assistance.
 The Pennsylvania program is part of a six-state initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Small Business Administration (SBA). Matching grants were offered to help selected states fund small company access to online technical and business information services and an established network of technical experts.
 The federal program is based on an award-winning model called Minnesota Project Outreach, for which Teltech provides the service delivery. A recent independent survey found that companies involved in the Minnesota program expect service usage to produce an average increase of $770,000 in current and future profits.
 The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Small Business commissioned research on Teltech's client base and found that the service offers businesses a 16-to-1 return on investment. In 1991, Congress authorized the SBA to create the federal technology access program.
 "What we've created is a knowledge commons," said Richard C. Anderson, Jr., Teltech chief executive officer. "American businesses and industries are not going to be competitive on a global scale until we learn how to share technical, scientific and marketing resources. We have to get over the not-invented-here syndrome."
 Teltech offers three key services: an expert network where clients speak directly via telephone with leading specialists in more than 5,600 technical and scientific areas; a literature searching service whereby a Teltech searcher accesses the world's major databases while the client is in simultaneous telephone and computer screen contact; and a supplier locating service.
 Teltech is headquartered in Minneapolis. Among its clients are scientists and engineers at more than half of the Fortune 500 companies. Teltech has been named to the Inc. 500 list of the country's fastest growing private companies.
