JAYE COMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF GEORGIA TECHNOLOGY SOURCEBOOK 1993; GEORGIA'S FIRST COMPREHENSIVE TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORY

 JAYE COMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF GEORGIA TECHNOLOGY SOURCEBOOK 1993; GEORGIA'S FIRST COMPREHENSIVE TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORY
 ATLANTA, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaye Communications, Inc. of Atlanta, in conjunction with the kick-off of Georgia High Technology Month, today released it first annual Georgia Technology SourceBook, the industry's first comprehensive, indexed directory of technology companies having a physical presence in the state of Georgia.
 Georgia Technology SourceBook 1993 (GTS) is the first single resource listing the state's numerous contributors, in 10 defined industry groups via three separate indexes, to the various technology fields. Its primary purpose is to promote local technology industries and to facilitate alliances and new business affiliations on a statewide, regional, national and international level.
 As the largest publisher of technology information in the Southeast, Jaye Communications, Inc. (formerly Jaye Publications, Inc.) is especially qualified to develop GTS 1993. According to Mike Adkinson, president of Jaye Communications, Inc. (JCI), his company conducted an extensive review of the nation's few existing technology directories.
 In addition, JCI obtained advice from leaders in the local technology industry, namely Georgia Tech's Advanced Technology Development Center, the Georgia Research Alliance, the Georgia Department of Industry, Trade and Tourism, the Georgia Biomedical Partnership, the Georgia High Tech Alliance and other technology associations, as well as local business executives.
 According to Adkinson: "We were able to include all of their recommendations for obtaining the specific information they felt would be most critical in our research. The result is what we believe to be the most complete, organized and easy-to-use technology directory in the country."
 Throughout its work within the industry over the past several years, JCI discovered that many Georgia technology companies were seeking and establishing partnerships -- for example, with vendors -- outside the state, simply because they were unaware that one or more perfectly suited vendors existed locally. "Over time, GTS will undoubtedly become the catalyst for identifying and establishing local technology alliances. As a result, the information contained in GTS 1993 may very well boost not only the state's economy, but also increase the visibility of our technology companies," said Adkinson.
 The 180-page, 8-1/2" by 11" directory will also be of interest to Fortune 1000 companies, venture capitalists, technology companies interested in moving to Georgia as well as professionals in law, accounting, engineering, architecture and other services.
 Georgia Institute of Technology is a sponsor of GTS 1993 through its business development unit, Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC). According to H. Wayne Hodges, the director of ATDC: "The growth and expansion of our technology industries are extremely important factors in Georgia's future prosperity. We need good information about industry trends and directions in order to make good planning decisions for the future. I am delighted that we now have this reliable information available through the Georgia Technology SourceBook."
 The release of GTS 1993 comes on the heels of Gov. Zell Miller's recent appointment of the Advisory Council on Science and Technology Development, whose charter is to promote technology throughout the state.
 "We believe that GTS will be a significant tool in helping to accomplish one of the council's most important tasks: to promote the economic development of this state and to help provide an inventory of Georgia's high technology industry," said Adkinson.
 GTS 1993 lists manufacturers, distributors, developers and service providers from 10 major technology industry groups -- such as telecommunications, robotics, aerospace, computers and biotechnology -- three ways: alphabetically, by industry group, and by major products and services. Previous directories by other sponsors list companies alphabetically only, which makes it difficult to identify product source or technology expertise if the company name is not known.
 Public information centers -- such as colleges and universities and public libraries -- and other agencies and institutions interested in promoting Georgia's growth -- such as technology associations, Chambers of Commerce and state agencies -- will participate as distribution centers for GTS 1993 and subsequent annual editions. Individuals may also order Georgia Technology SourceBook directly from JCI by calling 404-984-9444. Major credit cards or pre-paid checks are accepted. The cost of the directory is $36, plus $4.80 for shipping and tax.
 JCI is also developing a supplement to GTS 1993, which will highlight additional companies that have been identified since the release of the first edition. This supplement will also consist of facts, statistics and other useful information about Georgia's technology industry. It will be sent to GTS subscribers free of charge by April 1993.
 In addition, GTS has announced plans for two other directories to be released by mid-year. The first is Office Systems and Technology Buyer's Guide, which will list all office and electronic information services throughout metro Atlanta.
 The second directory, titled Who's Who in Georgia Technology, will provide a comprehensive, statewide listing of technology experts. Adkinson and others at JCI refer to this directory as a "networking necessity."
 Jaye Communications, Inc. of Atlanta was established in April 1989 and is the largest publisher of technology information in the Southeast. JCI publications include Atlanta Computer Currents, HighTech NewsWire, Tech Market South, Tech Notes, and Georgia Technology SourceBook.
