Your Mission With Our Technology Will
Beyond What Could Be Imagined Today
InfoUSA, a Nevada corporation was
created to integrate telecommunications, electronic banking and
internet services into one seamless service.
InfoUSA embarked on a mission to
design and fully develop a proprietary technology, both hardware and
software, which integrates three powerful technologies; Telecommunications,
the world’s most universal and interactive communication medium; Electronic
Banking, the key to electronic commerce; and the Internet,
the world’s most powerful information medium as one seamless service.
EasyTel.Net, incorporated in 1995,
distributes the Universal Office, which integrates electronic
banking, unified communications, and Internet services on a single
platform, running over GenieNet, a global private voice-over-IP
network. Genie - the personality of the Universal Office on the phone
and online - is used to brand most of the Universal Office service
offerings in one way or another.
From New York City to Seattle, from Miami
to San Diego, from Houston to Minneapolis, from Boston to Salt Lake
City, EasyTel resells Local Service in over five thousand cities and
communities, in 139 area codes spanning across 1586 Rate Centers in 29
states and Washington DC, and can be reached by approximately 85% of
the population in the United States as a local call.
EasyTel is also provides access to Local
Public Access Numbers in Canada, Australia, England, Wales, Scotland,
Ireland, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Those
markets extend the reach of EasyTel's local-access services, bridging
the Atlantic to allow customers international access to a single

InfoUSA has concentrated on expanding its vision beyond
today's norm in two very important ways. The first fundamental
principle of the InfoUSA vision is already a working reality, while
application of the second is well underway.
First Principle - A Truly
Seamless System MUST Operate On A Truly Integrated Platform.
InfoUSA has many competitors supporting some subset of the
features we offer. None support our full set of capabilities, and all
treat those service combinations as separate functions to be tied
together (often with string and bailing wire).
To grasp the inherent superiority of the Universal Office
platform, it is crucial to understand the simple fact that it actually
IS a unified platform. Rather than grafting a call processing package
onto an email function and then tying those to an ATM card system,
EasyTel combined all of those functions and more into a single
information processing system. The Universal Office moves information
not from one system to another, but from one purpose to another within
Because of its unified approach, the Universal Office
platform handles transactions more rapidly, at lower costs than its
rivals, allows for combinations of services not possible with
post-bundled systems, and guarantees that future feature additions will
remain as fully integrated as current services.
Second Principle -
Integrated Distribution Of Processing Is Vital To Growth And
As important as full integration is, it need not - indeed
must not - mean that only a single, gargantuan system serves as the
locus for all processing. Such an approach would mean that growth
cannot proceed past a very short point.
For this reason, InfoUSA is focusing a
great deal of attention on the complete integration of Genie's LAMP
into the Universal Office platform. Genie's LAMP is far more than just
a local connectivity device - it is a fully featured Local Access
Message Processor. In the new architecture, the majority of the
features now provided through the central host processors of the
Universal Office will be handled on a distributed basis by Genie's
LAMPs located in customer sites all around the world.
Through tight integration between host and LAMP, messages,
transactions, faxes, and all of the other information flows will travel
at the best possible speed over the least costly routes. The ability of
the LAMP to make direct use of phone lines local to the location where
it is installed means that our services can be offered, fully
integrated, in vast areas of the world never before even considered for
"local" communications services. Using this approach, we can
conceivably offer a customer in London England or London Canada the
full suite of Universal Office services, with no infrastructure
expansion on our part.
InfoUSA Mergers and
Acquisitions Policy - All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Grow?
entrepreneurs and small businesses find themselves facing a familiar
predicament: They've built a solid, profitable business, but it's
reached the limits of its growth and the future looks flat. They can't
break out of the market they are in, or they can't offer the equity
share to attract the new talent they need, or they're too small to
swing the financing to build to that next level, and way to small to
"go public". Or maybe they've just taken the business as far as they
ever wanted to - they're ready to move on to other things, but have not
found the right exit strategy.

number of years. Just throw them together and you've got it, right?

them into a box. No one would toss an engine, wheels and a chassis into
a garage and expect them magically to become a high performance race
Mergers and Acquisitions
continues to refine and develop technology while expanding market-share
through marketing and strategic acquisition. InfoUSA is committed to a
process of internal, organic growth - building and growing our own
solutions WHERE IT MAKES SENSE. But we also are continuing to build our
business through judicious business combinations. We refine and develop
technology while expanding through marketing and strategic acquisition.
We find the best and most valuable people, companies, ideas and
products in our industry, and then bring them into the InfoUSA fold. At
the same time, we carefully build the bridges that connect and
integrate those acquisitions into one organization.
Corporate combinations: How to make 1 + 1 = 11
the only things limiting a small company's growth are basic overhead
and access to resources. Being part of the InfoUSA family brings
economy of scale. Eliminate duplicate overhead and everyone profits.
Bring in the ability to fully develop that one "killer application" and
the market opens - usually exponentially. That's how we improve
technology to secure the future. Build a larger & better team with
experience and relationships in more markets. Bake a larger pie for

the talent you need to grow the business further - to develop that
great idea, or even to just keep the wheels on - takes something beyond
a checkbook. Good people require more then just a salary. They want to
participate in the future of the company… to build equity.
principal in a small business, when the time comes that you want to
sell, you must find someone who is interested not simply in investing,
but in stepping into your shoes. By contrast, when you have stock in a
publicly owned company you can divide it with your partners, family
members, or sell the shares on the public market more easily and for
better value. You don't have to find your replacement.
We've done it before and we'll do it again.
