Who We Are
Triton provides the electronic distribution of
travel inventory from airlines, car rental
companies, hotels, tour and cruise operators, and
other travel vendors to travel agencies and their
clients on a global basis.  Tritons propriet
ary products and services fill a crucial need in
the travel industry by offering a low-cost
distribution alternative with unique product and
marketing advantages.

Company
Triton is 100 Internet-based business-to-business
travel distribution company. Core business is pr
oviding an electronic exchange between travel
agencies and travel vendors, Triton is publicly
traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol OTCBBTTDS

Tritons Strengths
Triton is liberating the travel industry from a
distribution system that can no longer grow.
Triton is a publicly traded company with the f
inancial resources and management accountability
required for strong partnerships. (OTCBB TTDS)
We serve the distribution needs of both vendor
s and agencies which is why we have a strong
distribution channel already in place not just
vendor connections. Travel is a global industry
which is why we have an international focus not
just U.S. Bookings will be cleared though IATA
(not only ARC) making hotels, cruise lines,
rail, river cruises, cars etc.
all available in one location.

rket driver for both vendors and agencies is

Customer Drivers Vendor
Primary customer driver is the ability to move
inventory volume at a lower cost than a GDS.
Cost and volume are fundamental to Tritons value
proposition but they are not differentiators.
