MCI ANNOUNCES COMMERCIAL AVAILABILITY AND ENHANCEMENTS OF MCI PERSPECTIVE FOR VNET

 WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC) today announced commercial availability of MCI Perspective for Vnet, a strategic management tool which allows large companies to analyze long distance billing information electronically or via CD-ROM.
 Designed for MCI's largest customers, MCI Perspective for Vnet is a personal computer-based software tool which provides images of Vnet invoices, optional invoice reports, management information reports as well as call detail records for monthly analysis. Customers can receive part or all of their data electronically through MCI Mail or on CD-ROM. The product provides over 28 standard reports for customer analysis and a variety of options customers can use to create reports to meet unique business needs.
 "With MCI Perspective for Vnet, users can quickly and efficiently monitor and control their telecommunications services and costs -- all from their PC," said Jim DeMerlis, MCI's director of Enhanced Customer Applications. "MCI Perspective for Vnet is an extension of MCI's overall billing strategy providing customers with flexible reports and paperless billing alternatives."
 Commercial availability of MCI Perspective for Vnet also brings enhancements developed during Beta testing. They include information sent electronically via MCI Mail as well as CD-ROM; multiple location reporting; and increased customized report capabilities such as re- pricing.
 During the Beta testing period, according to DeMerlis, the product attracted Vnet customers beyond MCI's original expectations.
 "One of the strongest features of MCI Perspective for Vnet," DeMerlis said, "is that reports can be customized to reflect the exact type of information the customer needs, when they need it. This can help them make critical evaluations of how their business is operating and show them where changes need to be made to enhance productivity."
 MCI Perspective for Vnet allows customers to:
 -- identify calling patterns and trends to optimize their
 network;
 -- provide cost control mechanisms to control efficiency;
 -- save time by accessing easy-to-read formats and graphing
 capabilities;
 -- improve customer service by analyzing hourly and daily
 distributions of outbound traffic;
 -- verify extremes such as the longest and most expensive calls;
 -- forecast and budget long distance expenses by analyzing trends
 from month to month.
 Perspective for Vnet is available at no charge to Vnet customers. Prior to the Vnet availability, MCI Perspective was offered to MCI Vision and MCI Portfolio customers. MCI Perspective was a winner of the 1992 ComNet New Product Achievement Award.
 MCI, headquartered in Washington, offers a full range of domestic and global telecommunications services through one of the world's largest all-digital networks. With 1991 revenue of nearly $10 billion, the company is the second largest long distance provider in the United States and has more than 60 overseas offices in 55 countries.
