About McLloyd

McLloyd was born in 2013 in France. Based on the growing demand for performance optimization tools in sport and the limitations of existing equipment, McLloyd has set itself the goal of bringing a technological breakthrough in this area.

After 3 years of R & D and several million euros invested, a first World Rugby Compliant system was launched in 2016, immediately propelling McLloyd as the leading supplier of French professional rugby (TOP14 / ProD2). Then in 2017, McLloyd won the international PMU bidding competition for 42 companies to track horses in the race. Thus was born the first centimeter GPS tracker in the world compatible with the constraints of sport due to its size and weight. This range of products for Horse Racing is now used on the biggest horse races in the world.

In 2018 McLloyd opened a subsidiary in Miami, and today addresses the European and American markets of tracking in professional sports and horse racing.

The accuracy of data as well as the reliability of live and biometric data are the subject of 4 patents filed and 3 major technological breakthroughs. McLloyd’s technologies are also regularly recognized in the most prestigious innovation competitions. McLloyd is the winner of the Global Innovation Competition in 2017, the ilab Digital Innovation Contest in 2018 and the H2020 European Contest in 2019.

McLloyd is committed to its customers and partners on a daily basis to continue to innovate to make data more relevant. Delivering more than 100TO of data to its customers in 2019, McLloyd has become today a key player in GPS tracking around the world.
