 ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 9, 1998--Touch Industries, Inc.  and their

Industries' Point of Sale cash register clients and iInform's national software 
rental customers with touchscreen P.O.S. hardware, software and systems 
integration.  Additionally, on-site training and support will be also provided. 
 CompUSA will supply specific touchscreen point of sale terminals, servers,
