Several of our customers have told us that the savings and efficiencies they gained in the last two years with their new information systems capabilities made the difference between operating with a profit instead of a loss in their fiscal year.
Birmingham, AL (Vocus/PRWEB) January 26, 2011
McLeod Software has completed its fiscal year with a new record for sales growth. The company’s 2010 fiscal year shows with a 56% sales increase over 2009.
“We continue to see extremely strong growth in investment in information technology from our customers in the transportation industry” says Tom McLeod, President and CEO of McLeod Software. “2010 was a much better year overall for freight transportation, and our customers have invested in information technology solutions because of the very high rate of return for those investments. Well-managed companies are continuing to improve their operations with better systems.”
Tom McLeod explains the nature of the company’s growth by saying “We have seen strong growth from both our existing customers who are expanding/upgrading their IT systems capabilities, and new customers who are implementing our off the shelf solutions for trucking dispatch management, brokerage, business process automation, document management and imaging, and freight management. Every category of product and every type of customer segment we measure generated double digit growth for our 2010 fiscal year to contribute to this overall 56% increase.”
“We believe this trend reflects the terrific return on investment our customers are receiving. Several of our customers have told us that the savings and efficiencies they gained in the last two years with their new information systems capabilities made the difference between operating with a profit instead of a loss in their fiscal year. And we consistently find customers who have been able to recoup their capital investments in very short time frames. We have many of reports from customers who saw a greater than 100% internal rate of return in the first year for their IT projects. As our industry and our customers continue to find new ways to leverage their IT investments to deliver valuable capabilities for the business, we expect this trend of new IT capital investments to continue. It bodes well for the health of our industry that technology adoption is being done in ways that yield tangible business benefits.”
