Since our founding in 1979, Triton has long been known as an innovator. In the early days of our company, we developed and built remarkable scientific equipment for demanding clients like Exxon, General Electric, Magnavox, and the U.S. Navy. They learned that Triton not only has the technological expertise to solve problems, but also has a rare passion for developing technology that makes sense — solutions that are as practical and affordable as they are sophisticated.

 Major Milestones


ARGO Introduction Triton released the company’s next family of ATMs, the ARGO®. This new family of ATMs rolls out features unique to Triton, as well as the ATM industry. Triton’s ARGO ATM– is the first complete product re-design in a decade. The ARGO series incorporates e-receipt and SMS-receipt capabilities, a retail ATM first.


Versasafe.comTriton made the decision to sell its ATM solutions Limited  (ASEL) and Infocash Limited (Infocash) UK marketing groups allowing the company to focus on expanding and growing Triton's core businesses.


Triton announced the addition of the Traverse™ in February 2011 to the product line up. Expressly designed for the retail market, The sleek TritonTraverse™ is an extremely affordable entry-level ATM that finally merges the best of both worlds: the quality of the trusted Triton name, with a price point aimed at competing with low cost alternatives like the Nautilus Hyosung 1800 and the Hantle 1700W and other low-end off-premise ATMs.

Another addition expanded the Triton product mix to include intelligent safe technology in the VersaSafe™, a remarkably fast, secure and accurate vault deposit system for cash-intensive businesses. It is the most intelligent high-tech means of tracking, storing, and balancing multiple cash sales. Versasafe when paired with VersaLink™, merchants can keep track of the safe's activity 24/ 7 from a web based device or computer including via mobile iPhone and Android applications.

During this time frame, Triton also launched their ATMGurus Europe, furthering the reach of the brand, by supplying ATM parts and repair across the European landscape. Triton's InfoCash division in the U.K. also acquired the business and assets of its former competitor, Cashbox plc., to more than doubling their InfoCash ATM estate to nearly 5,000 units.


In March 2010, Dover completed the sale of Triton to a group of private investors, ending a prolonged period of uncertainty and solidifying Triton’s future.


In March 2009, Triton introduced the RL1600, the new low-cost, yet feature-rich off-premise ATM. So popular was the RL1600 that it was named the CSP product of the year for 2009

Also in March of 2009, Triton made the decision to sell its Calypso processing operation in order to focus on ATM manufacturing, software development and support.

In September 2009, ATMGurus was officially launched. Leveraging Triton's Memphis footprint, ATMGurus provides customers with multi- brand parts, repair and training support for their estates.


In 2008 Triton launched the RL2000, an affordable, feature-rich stand-alone ATM with more functionality and standard features than any comparably priced ATM currently in the market, in August 2007. The RL2000’s innovative design is based on Microsoft’s® Windows® CE operating system and Triton’s X2 main board, which makes the RL2000 as reliable as it is affordable.

Due to the popularity of and the accelerating demand for the new RL2000, Triton announced the end of life of the 9100. When the last model rolled off the production line, a total of 65,379 9100s had been built and installed in more than 24 countries around the world.

Triton subsidiary, Calypso, a leader in the ATM transaction processing, reporting and settlement services market, began operations in Australia. On April 14, 2008, Calypso began the largest migration of ATMs to be completed in a single day — 2,808 ATMs.


The FT7000 family of ATMs, a completely new line of terminals designed to provide financial institutions with a full-function ATM at a price that makes financial sense, was introduced. The FT7000 provides banks and credit unions with a total solution for drive-up and walk-up applications. In addition, the PC platform with the Intel Pentium IV processor running the Microsoft XP Pro operating system and Triton’s Prism application software enable the broadening and customizing of Web delivered services to consumers.


In 2006 Triton subsidiary, Calypso acquired the ATM estate and ATM management services of Cash Point Machines and the ATM estate, repair and warehousing operations of InfoCash. The acquisition was part of Triton’s long-term strategy to build on their global success in the ATM industry and provide high-quality, cost-effective ATM equipment, processing, and service for the ATM market. These acquisitions positioned Triton to provide direct in-country warehousing, parts, repair, and technical service related support for all their products. In addition, Calypso Europe provided expanded ATM processing, monitoring, and management services.

Triton celebrated the grand opening of a new Memphis facility in July 2006. A part of our plans to provide backup capabilities as a part of our disaster awareness, the Memphis facility houses the company’s technical training department, operations for parts and repair and additional staff for technical support.


Hurricane Katrina provided a major challenge for Triton in late August 2005. Fortunately Triton had applied innovative thought and practices in the development of its disaster recovery plan. As a result of the forethought and planning, Triton’s Long Beach administrative, manufacturing and production facilities were back on-line within two weeks.


In April 2004, Fujitsu and Triton entered into a strategic licensing agreement to provide a broader range of ATM solutions for financial institutions and retailers though the deployment of Fujitsu’s Windows-based Prism software on Triton ATMs. Prism software supports a standard 912 transaction emulation and uses Microsoft’s industry-standard interface WOSA-XFS enabling the same application to run on any Windows-capable ATM.

In July 2004, the Triton Standard interface specifications were licensed to many manufactures emulating Triton ATMs. This enabled processors and manufacturers to incorporate additional functionality into their ATM platform and to standardize one single protocol.

In December Triton launched the RT2000, a smaller low-cost thought-the-wall ATM, that was easy to install and easy to maintain. A record 120,000 ATMs were shipped to 17 countries around the world in 2004.


Financial institutions started reaping the ATM cost/performance ratio benefit resulting from Triton’s success in the retail marketplace. In 2003, Triton released the FT5000, a secure through-the-wall unit, and RL5000 lobby units. The 5000 series leads the market with the utilization of the latest computing platform technology to provide the most cost-competitive feature-rich ATMs available on the market.


The Triton model 9100 was introduced in 2002 featuring the TMD-100 cash dispensing mechanism, designed and manufactured by Triton for assured reliability, and a full range of security and service features previously found only in far more expensive ATMs. The 9100 was recognized by the industry as the best stand-alone ATM. The 9100 has a patented cabinet design that increases integrity and security while making the unit easier and quicker to install. To date more than 65,379 9100s have been installed.

In late 2002, a strategic agreement between Triton and Transaction Network Services (TNS) enabled Independent ATM Deployers to arrange an end-to-end ATM management solution through just one point of contact, with the established division of Triton called Calypso Europe. The turnkey package incorporates processing, monitoring, authorization, back-office operations, and settlement for many terminal types, including traditional leased-line ATMs and dial-up off-premise ATMs. Triton and TNS expertise in data communications and processing provide a complete service and hardware offering.


Triton was acquired by Dover Corporation. Dover, NYSE-traded (DOV), is a multi-billion dollar diversified manufacturer of a wide range of proprietary products and components for industrial and commercial use. Dover, an organization with annual revenues $5.5 billion, is known as a manufacturer of a wide range of proprietary products and components for industrial and commercial use. The Dover philosophy is to acquire businesses that are focused on product quality, innovation, and exceptional customer service with strong management teams in place.

Triton launched the 9600 series in 1997. The machine incorporated a number of ways to help retailers build ATM traffic including an all-new compelling design that featured high-visibility signage and a color screen. Popularity skyrocketed and in 1999, Triton became the second largest ATM manufacturer in the United States, carving a permanent niche in the off-premise market. To date, close to 50,000 Triton 9600 units have been shipped to off-premise locations worldwide, many of which are still in service.


By 1994, consumers’ need to access their funds through easy and quick cash withdrawals led Triton to develop a revolutionary small, convenient, and affordable ATM. Few in the industry were prepared for the impact that the Triton 9500 series cash dispenser would have. ATMs were now a practical possibility for countless non-bank locations.


In 1992, Triton pioneered in-store cash withdrawals with the introduction of the Scrip terminal, a machine that allows a store’s customers to use an ATM card to generate a voucher that was redeemable for cash at the register. Soon, thousands of Scrip terminals were installed across the United States in convenience stores and casinos providing the consumer with a new outlet for making cash withdrawals.


In 1989, Triton developed CAS, the Card Activation System that allows financial institutions to instantly issue ATM cards with custom PINs. Combined with the ATMjr, the technology provided a powerful automated training aid and instant issue solution.


The banking industry turned to Triton in 1985 for the development of the world’s first battery-powered and completely portable device for training consumers on an all-new technology: Automated Teller Machines. The ATMjr helped spur a revolution in the banking industry, and it is still used in more than 1,800 financial institutions worldwide. We proved to be such a good fit with the financial industry that over the next few years, we began to focus exclusively on financial services. Almost immediately, we began to deliver innovations that changed the industry.
