Initially founded in 2001, Lead411 has expanded from its home base in California. Today, the company has grown to include separate offices as well as further feature development. Both on and off the internet, Lead411 provides corporate information and news as well as awards and vital lists. Although the website comments that additional features will be added in the future, no details are provided as to what direction those features will take the site.
Lead411 provides businesses and corporations a single go-to location for important research data. Rather than searching through automated features, Lead411 incorporates a human aspect into the information gathering process. The site prides itself on offering businesses accurate and up to date information that has been thoroughly researched.

Registration is also easy and accessible by clicking the sign up tab in the top navigation bar. New users will have to select their desired account type and make payment if necessary.
