SAUSALITO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:TTDS), a next generation web-based travel distribution service provider announced the next phase of its European market penetration plan today with the scheduled arrival of Triton’s Customer Support team in Amsterdam where they will begin an installation and training program for ATP’s Implementation team.
The deployment of Triton’s Support team represents the final stage of a partnership agreement announced last April. In that agreement ATP, a top travel management firm in the corporate and leisure market with sales in excess of $750 million (USD), guaranteed to implement ReservationExpert™ in ATP’s existing network of approximately 600 agencies to promote, advertise, train and support each agency in the use of ReservationExpert.
In addition to using ReservationExpert within its own network, ATP is committed to working with Triton to penetrate the Dutch market of 600,000 ticket segments. Triton expects to begin realizing revenue in the first two weeks of November. The initial deployment should represent approximately $300,000 (USD) monthly or $3.6 million (USD) annually.
“We have been working closely with the Triton Engineering team over the past few months to ensure that our agencies have the best web-based booking tool possible,” said Dennis van Wijk, C.T.O. for ATP. “I’m very happy to report that ReservationExpert has met our stringent requirements and my whole team is looking forward to using a true point-and-click, web-based tool of this caliber.”
“The European travel market is still the largest travel market in the world with over 450 million arrivals each year,” said Gregory Lykiardopoulos, Chairman and CEO for Triton. “Building significant market share in Europe is a critical part of our global market plan. It’s exciting and rewarding to see companies of ATP’s reputation sign onto our program.”
ATP has also committed itself to promote and advertise ReservationExpert throughout the European market. ATP has offices in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Norway, and the UK as well as the USA. ATP is continuously growing its worldwide network in four major regions in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia/Pacific.
Triton has been expanding the functionality of ReservationExpert since its release last March. The core product now includes cruises with consolidator, low cost carrier and tour modules scheduled for completion this year.
