Summary
  • CD-ROMs are capable of storing up to 680MB of information and have given small organizations access to a library of data. CD-ROM phone directories are useful marketing tools although they have some limitations. Before purchasing, users should weigh factors such as ancillary data availability, price, quality of data and the accessibility of data. Pro CD's ProPhone line is constructed as a marketing tool, which brings names, phone numbers, company size and number of employees together for mailing-lists. Its $299 SelectPhone is a four-CD-ROM offering that provides US residential and business listings along with 2,700 SIC code headings. Digital Data Assoc offers an easy-to-use PhoneDisc USA priced from $83 to $249, but its limitations render it impractical for marketing as its output is confined to only 50 names per session. American Business Information's American $79 Business Phone Book professes the highest- merit of any directory, but has a limited life-span of one year before the software shuts the user out of the information on the disk.
