Message board launched within RPLS.

CORVALLIS, OREGON--October 29, 2001--Tripod Data Systems (TDS) today announced the launch of their TDS message board within the RPLS.com website. RPLS.com hosts a message board for land surveying professionals. The primary purpose of the TDS message board is to provide a valuable discussion forum on issues, suggestions, or questions about TDS and TDS products. It will be monitored daily by TDS to respond to messages when direct response is appropriate. The TDS message board can be found at http://www.i-boards.com/bnp/pobtds/. “The true value of the TDS message board will be customers helping customers,” said Bill Martin, TDS Director of Survey Marketing and Sales. “Our hope is that the board will foster discussions between users about their experiences and solutions to certain problems, rather than requiring direct input from TDS. We also look forward to learning how we can improve our products to better serve our customer’s needs.” In addition to the TDS message board, RPLS.com hosts a general message board and message boards by other equipment manufacturers. Posts include a wide range of topics including discussions on surveying practices, standards and equipment. About Tripod Data Systems Tripod Data Systems Inc.
