DISTRIBUTION AMERICA ENDORSES TRIAD'S EAGLE SYSTEM

 LIVERMORE, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Triad Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: TRSC) today announced that Distribution America has endorsed Triad's Eagle family of business and information management systems through Triad's Advantage marketing program.
 Distribution American is the nation's largest marketing and buying organization, comprised of 36 independent hardware distributors serving more than 25,000 independent retail stores. Distribution America also markets the Trustworthy, Sentry and Golden Rule store programs for independent hardware outlets. The organization had sales of $2.2 billion last year.
 The Eagle automated systems enable retailers to implement Distribution America's Retail Profit Management (RPM) program, improving their pricing and product assortment decisions to compete more effectively.
 "Triad's Eagle family product line offers independent hardware retailers affordable automated solutions to the challenge of improving their competitive positions against chain outlets," said Ron Pink, Distribution America president and chief executive officer.
 Distribution America will also continue its participation in Triad's new VISTA information service, the first service to provide point of sale data collected at the independent retail level. VISTA provides product manufacturers with ongoing measurement of brand and item movement within major product classifications, enabling manufacturers to determine how a given brand performs against its competitors and the markets in general.
 "VISTA will also assist the independent retailer in determining what products move best at specific times," said Triad Retail Hardgoods Vice President Skip Zuanich. "The combination of the Eagle's flexibility and power and the emerging ability to measure specific point of sale product movement give the independent the same technological advantages the major chain outlets enjoy."
 Triad, serving 3,500 retail hardgoods outlets nationwide, is the industry's leading provider of business and information management systems for retail hardware, lumber and building supply and home decorating outlets.
