DUBLIN, Ohio, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dublin-based Northwoods is continuing to grow despite the difficult economy.  Northwoods will soon add two new states to the list of those in which human services agencies use its products and services. Nearly 100 state and county agencies in eight (and soon 10) states use the company's Compass Software® every day to manage documents electronically, improve business processes, and help serve clients more efficiently and effectively.

Four new employees joined Team Northwoods this week, bringing the company's headcount to 102, and over 100 for the first time.  The new recruits include a developer, a help desk analyst, a quality assurance tester, and a project manager.  

Since focusing exclusively on serving the needs of human services agencies in 2003, Northwoods has grown from just five employees to more than 100 today.  

"Northwoods' steady growth is a product of the work ethic and talents of all members of our team," said Christopher Carlson, Chief Operating Officer, Northwoods.  "From employee number one to, now, employee number 102, Northwoods has always sought to hire and retain exceptional individuals to provide the world-class service and industry-leading products our customers have come to expect."

More than 12,000 human services workers use Northwoods' Compass Software® every workday to better serve their growing caseloads of clients.  While most Northwoods employees work out of the Dublin office, the company also has remote staff in five states to support its growing user base.
