McLeod Software, a provider of dispatch and accounting fleet management software for the trucking industry, announced Thursday, March 8, a significant increase in sales during the first two months of 2007 and record-breaking first-quarter sales during its FY2007, beginning Oct. 1, 2006.

The Birmingham, Ala.-based company credits new major accounts for its enterprise management solution and increased adoption of its document imaging system with driving the company’s ongoing and rapid growth. Rick Halbrooks, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing, says that sales in the first two months of calendar year 2007 were 79 percent higher than the same two months in 2006. Halbrooks projects record-breaking sales for the second quarter of McLeod’s 2007 fiscal year.

“Sales for the first five months of this fiscal year were 92 percent higher than the same five months in the previous year,” Halbrooks says. “New customers using our LoadMaster, PowerBroker and Document Imaging solutions are driving our success. Often referred by existing clients, new customers are increasingly adopting our software to improve their business processes, efficiency and productivity.”
