JUSTTALK LICENSES INFOUSA.COM'S BUSINESS DIRECTORY.

JustTalk, Inc., a provider of interactive, speech-driven solutions connecting mobile professionals with enterprise information, and infoUSA.com, a majority-owned subsidiary of infoUSA, Inc. (Nasdaq: IUSA) and a leading online provider of white and yellow pages directory databases, have announced that JustTalk will license infoUSA.com's business directory database. The agreement will enable JustTalk users to access infoUSA.com's database of 12 million businesses as well as deliver accurate data through JustTalk's proprietary speech recognition software.

JustTalk's speech-driven solutions will increase mobile professionals' productivity by enabling users to capture new data, access existing data and share data with other users over any telephone while seamlessly integrating with enterprise systems. JustTalk's first release has been implemented with PeopleSoft CRM's mobile Sales Force Automation (SFA) software.

"We see infoUSA.com's database becoming an increasingly valuable business ally with JustTalk as we release future versions," said Richard Beedon, JustTalk founder and CEO. "As users capture new data with the JustTalk system, the infoUSA.com database is ensuring that the information entered is accurate. Quality of data and speed are critical to our users."

"JustTalk's application of infoUSA.com's directory database will provide JustTalk with a newfound ability to access the directory data they need and capture new business data when and where they want it," said Bill Chasse, president and CEO of infoUSA.com.

In addition to licensing infoUSA.com's database to JustTalk, the two companies will participate in co-marketing programs.
