Today, with an established base of more than 950 active customers throughout North America, McLeod Software also operates regional offices with training facilities in Salt Lake City, Utah and Chicago, Illinois.

Located in Meadow Brook Corporate Park, the new McLeod Software headquarters has allowed the company to consolidate its Alabama employees to a single campus, and provides ample room for even more growth.

Our new headquarters facility in Hoover has helped to set the stage for efficient growth and operation.”
