 GOODYEAR CHOOSES TRIAD DATABASES FOR AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE CENTERS
 LIVERMORE, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Further expanding its presence in the retail segment of the automotive aftermarket, Triad Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: TRSC) today announced it will provide its comprehensive automotive databases to more than 1,200 Goodyear Auto Service Centers, franchise tire centers and subsidiaries nationwide. Access to Triad's databases will be integrated into Goodyear's tire business system used in all of its company-owned locations.
 Triad will begin providing Goodyear outlets with its databases in 1993, with all Goodyear company-owned locations centers to be included in 24 months. The agreement also calls for Triad to provide its database products to Goodyear's 150 Canadian centers. In addition, Goodyear's independent dealers will be offered Triad products as an option.
 "This agreement represents a major milestone in the marketing of Triad's databases and upon full implementation will add significantly to Triad's recurring revenues," said Donald C. Wood, vice president of Information Services. "Triad is aggressively expanding its retail presence across the country, coinciding with a growing recognition of the value our data products and services inject into the highly competitive retail automotive environment."
 Under the agreement, for which terms were not disclosed, Triad will supply the Goodyear centers with software and monthly updates of its databases. Triad's automotive database includes 1.9 million parts for domestic and imported vehicles produced since 1968 and its labor-estimating database incorporates Mitchell International's mechanical repair information.
 Triad introduced its Electronic Catalog in 1984. The catalog and its derivative products have been expanded to include parts and prices from nearly 2,500 product lines representing 400 automotive parts manufacturers. Triad's labor estimating database was introduced late last year, and Triad database products now serve more than 23,000 automotive counter positions across the United States.
 Winner of the 1991 Information Technology Association of America Total Quality Award, Triad is the leading provider of business and information management solutions for the automotive aftermarket and retail hardgoods industry. Utilizing Triad's proprietary databases, the Information Services organization is the company's fastest growing unit. Triad's turnkey computer systems are supported by a nationwide customer services operation and financing.
