ATLANTA -- Equifax Inc. has dropped the Telecredit name from two business units it acquired in December 1990.

The credit card processing business is officially Equifax Card Services, with the Telecredit name no longer appended. Similarly, the check verification and guarantee business becomes Equifax Check Services.

Joint operations of the two units will be identified as Equifax Payment Services.

"The Telecredit name has served us well, but now it is time to move forward," said a joint statement by Lee A. Kennedy, senior vice president of card servics, and Linden J. Fellerman, senior vice president of check services.
