The Official CD-ROM


The ABA produced "The Official CD-ROM" for the 1996 ABA Bank Card Conference in Orlando, Florida, with the CD being billed as the basic information about every exhibiting company and their product brochures, videos, demos, slide shows and World Wide Web sites.


Now beyond the hype, the disk actually contains the names, addresses, and contact numbers for 104 organizations, including the ABA itself; however, only 25% of the companies listed on the CD had any other information.


Interestingly enough, no information was provided on the disk from Equifax, ETC Scan, Faulkner & Gray, VeriFone, MasterCard or Visa, except for contact information. The multimedia winner on the ABA disk was John Harland Company, with a wonderful AVI presentation on the business called "Focus."


A small number of other companies also created nice information pages including CrossCheck, Inc.
