Transportation companies continue to invest in information technology at a record pace.
McLeod Software completed 2012 with sales at an all-time high. On the heels of a record sales revenue increase for new, first time customers in 2011, McLeod Software’s 2012 calendar year results included yet another 44% increase in new customers over the previous year. It was also the third straight year that the company’s overall revenue growth exceeded 20% of the previous year.
“2012 economic conditions were just right for what we do, because companies were seeing improvement in the economy and opportunities in the marketplace, but they weren’t so busy that they didn’t have time to stop and look for ways to improve their business,” said Tom McLeod, President and CEO of McLeod Software. “Our customers have said that their key customers are asking them to do more – to take on freight that they haven’t previously tried to handle. They have to broaden their services, and it’s very important that they have an information system that will support those services.”
“If we’ve done anything right, we’ve been careful listeners. We listen very carefully to our customers in order to move our products and services in a direction that’s being well-received by the marketplace. As a result, in 2012 we saw new companies adopting our products in record numbers in addition to existing customers upgrading at a record pace.”
Tom McLeod went on to explain, “We want McLeod Software customers to be the most competitive transportation companies in the marketplace. We want our customers positioned to win the most business and to be the most efficient internally, so their costs are lower than their competitors. In this way, McLeod Software will continue to win their business for years to come, create a sustainable business, and make a contribution to the trucking and transportation marketplace in America.”
“I’m excited about the year ahead. Sales activity is at an all-time high. The development that we have lined up in response to input from customers is tremendous. This year, we’re going to be able to release more new modules and features than ever before. We’re working closely with our customers to come out with products that, in some cases, are going to have a revolutionary impact on their businesses and on the transportation industry.”
