Anticipation of New User Interface Draws New RESX Distributors to TRX

X Leveraging Web 2.0 in Upcoming RESX v6.3 Release; Combining the Best of the Leisure Online Booking Experience with Advanced Corporate Travel Policy Administration and Reporting

ATLANTA, Nov. 30 /-- TRX, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRXI), a leading, independent provider of transaction processing and data integration services to the global travel industry, today announced the addition of seven new RESX distributors to its RESX Distributor Program: Hamilton, Miller, Hudson & Fayne Travel Management Corp., IT&T Business Travel Solutions, MTI Travel Management & Meeting Planning Services (formerly Miami Travel), Paramount Travel (formerly Executive BTI Travel), Peak Travel Group, TravelOne, and Travel Corp. Professional Travel also renewed its RESX Distributor agreements this month, extending a three-year relationship with TRX.

RESX is a leading self-service, online booking tool that allows corporate travelers to make policy-compliant travel reservations. RESX v6.3 is the highly anticipated redesign of the online reservation application, which includes a new user interface, updated workflow, improved navigation, an air pricing matrix, style sheets for corporate customization and branding, and a new user profile display.

One of the first online booking tools to incorporate Web 2.0 practices throughout the booking experience, RESX v6.3 will provide travelers with an intuitive booking process similar to consumer online booking tools, yet have the power of RESX's industry-leading configuration, policy enforcement, and administration. Use of AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) programming and the development of new, Web 2.0-driven features will help increased adoption, decrease the amount of time required to accomplish tasks, and generally increase the interactivity of the application.

Scott Evans, Travel Corp President commented, "Travel Corp is always looking for ways to deliver additional value and savings to our corporate customers. We believe that version 6.3 of RESX, with its enhanced features and refreshed user interface, will help increase the adoption of the online booking tool, which translates into additional savings for corporations while making travelers' self-service booking experience simple and fast."

Added TRX Executive Vice President, Sales & Client Services, Shane Hammond, "Beta testing for RESX v6.3 started a few weeks ago and we are getting terrific feedback on the usability, design, and stability of this release. We have seen a dramatic increase in the volume of transactions our beta clients are sending through the application -- definitely a testament to their excitement. We are committed to making this a successful release for them and all of the corporate customers using RESX."

TRX distributes its online booking application through the RESX Distributor Program. A select number of corporate travel departments (CTD) and corporations contract directly with TRX for the RESX application, to ensure continuity of service regardless of its travel management changes or additions.

TRX plans to release RESX v6.3 in early January. All new RESX Distributors are promoting and selling version 6.3 of RESX and will implement corporations on the new release in January with the official launch of the redesigned application.

Tim Fitz, Director of Business Development for Paramount Travel, concluded, "As a travel management company, we continue to strive to make the life of our clients and all of their associated travelers as easy as possible. With the newly designed user interface of RESX, the intuitive design and ease of use will undoubtedly help lead the way in attaining this goal!"
