Zoot Claims Profitability, Growth

Bozeman, Montana-based Zoot, a developer of software used for credit decisions and loan origination, said Wednesday that the firm continued to see profitability and growth in 2009, despite "one of the most difficult years" the financial industry has faced. The privately held firm did not disclose any financials to back the statement, but said it increased the number of clients in 2009 by more than 20 percent.
