    COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Experian Group
 Ltd. (LSE: EXPN), a global information solutions company, today announced
 BizGo(SM), a mobile application that provides instant access to critical
 information, helping business or sales professionals make important
 decisions on the fly. Powered by Experian's commercial credit database of
 more than 19 million businesses, BizGo is the only application available in
 the United States that allows users to verify a company's current
 information and check its overall credit standing from a Web-enabled cell
 phone, PDA or other hand-held device.
     "In today's fast-paced business environment, companies need to leverage
 every advantage they can to help put them in front of their competition,"
 said Marc Kirshbaum, president of Experian's Business Information Solutions
 group. "BizGo provides users with the freedom to explore business prospects
 from a mobile device, opening the door for new opportunities that may have
 been missed while they were tied to their desks."
     Experian designed the BizGo report to provide users with instant access
 to business information while they are away from their workstations. The
 mini-report provides high-level company data, including key facts such as a
 business's address and phone number, the number of years in business,
 annual sales, SIC code and employee count - as well as information
 regarding bankruptcies, liens, collections or judgments. BizGo reports also
 include an A to F letter grade ranking for a quick evaluation of the
 company's overall credit standing.
     Experian's BizGo is available now. To register or learn more about the
 new mobile service, go to http://www.ExperianBizGo.com/start. Reports are
 just $2.95 each, and clients can view the last 15 reports pulled for up to
