Comments: This is definitely one of the most forward thinking applicant tracking systems. It's truly designed to put the power back in the hands of the recruiter. With automated systems and easy to use processes, Newton is a no-brainer. Once you see how easy the site is to track candidates, upload new connections and leads and tag them with keywords, you'll be hard pressed to find another site that equals it. Hiring Managers can also respond to automated emails from the system with a list of hashtag words to move candidates or approve new requisitions. This improves response times since they don't even have to log into the site! The metrics are simply amazing as well. You can see more accurate detail about your candidates in the process, your sources and your time to fill, which gives you the power to improve the gaps in your system with real-time data.

Pros: Awesome metrics Customizable workflows Ease of applicant tracking, sourcing, and contacting Automated posts to external sites Fantastic customer service.

Cons: Almost too much information in the metrics almost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do a demo, you'll be impressed with their knowledge of recruiting and the ease of implementation.

Comments: Newton software is designed for a corporate implementation. I run a recruiting group at a government contractor where we place candidates on site at various Federal government agencies and prime contract holders. We are not a staffing agency but I run my group like a staffing group and newton software is not designed for a staffing model. Having said that, it works quite well in its function as a corporate applicant tracking system. The Job orders page is its best feature in my opinion. When you bring up the job requisitions page, you can get a very clear idea of the number of candidates that are being sourced for each position and what stage each candidate is in. The reporting function is strong in Newton. The filters allow you to drill down to get specific metrics. Like any piece of software it takes some getting used to but it does have some very good workflow aspects to it. Automatic notification of candidates that have been declined or not accepted for a position as well as notification triggers when interviews are scheduled. Another nice function is that you can request feedback from the hiring manager, who has reviewed a resume, interviewed or phone screened. This id done in the app as part of the workflow functionality. We are a small organization and based on my knowledge of more powerful/robust ATS's, Newton will work well with small to midsize organizations.

Pros: The Job Reqs Dashboard and the reporting are its strongest features

Cons: A little klunky in its design - needs some updating.

Comments: Having been an internal recruiter for a variety of technical companies (Enterprise, Consumer Software, Games), I have run across plenty of poorly conceived ATS platforms. Usually they work like dinosaurs and everyone hates to use them. Newton is the exact opposite. I've been using it for two years now, have recommended it to all the clients where I have been onsite, and we all love it. It's obvious that Newton is designed by people that actually worked in the recruiting industry as recruiters. Top attributes: easy to set up, easy to use, and the front page gives you a great snapshot of all your jobs/candidates. Newton is a great collaboration tool to use with hiring managers and is the only system that I have used that doesn't require me to train hiring managers. Literally they just have to push ONE button to provide feedback. Executive team members and my clients that use Newton love the dashboards that provide them with easy to read, graphical, real-time performance metrics. (I like the dashboards because I don't have to spend all my time generating a bunch of status reports every week). Nice! Simply put, the guys at Newton get it. They've always been helpful. You can call their offices and actually talk to a live person and the best part is they keep making improvements to the product.

Pros: The dashboard layout summarizes everything recruiters, hiring managers, and executives need and want to see.

Cons: There seems to be a few bugs that are present when running Newton on Apple's products. Nothing major, but something to look into.

Recommendations to other buyers: Compare the overall summary/dash pages to any other ATS, and you'll likely notice Newton has the best and most easily readable layout. I'm not so sure on scalability, so if you're in a very large organization, check out the details relevant to your scale.

Pros: Extremely simple to use and the home interface is easy to look at and understand. Scheduling and tracking candidates in the pipeline are easy as 2 steps.

Cons: The application seems to be newer compared to the many others available on the market, which means they might be changing and implementing new features that might not be too useful in the future

Recommendations to other buyers: Always check out other software just in case another one fits your current situation better.

Pros: Simplicity at its best! Visually appealing to both the candidate and the administrators. Easy to communicate throughout the entire process with hiring managers. Also, customer service is seriously mind blowing. Fast responses, sharing of tools and resources and they don't always just give you the answer, they help discuss issues or concerns until you find the best possible solution. I'll call out Brian Fader - he helps me out almost on a weekly basis. Brian, along with Newton make my life so much easier.

Cons: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Newton literally makes my job easier.

Recommendations to other buyers: Spend time looking at the reporting and analytics features. The information available to you will allow you to "wow" internal stakeholders while also helping to keep hiring manager accountable. When evaluating these features, compare them to others - you will be impressed.

Pros: I like that this system is so simple and user friendly to use. You don't need any experience or formal training to use this system as it is very intuitive.

Cons: I wish there was a way to view the job posting and resume side by side instead of flipping back and forth between web pages.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend using the system for a minimum of 6 months before evaluating. Despite how easy it is to use, there are other neat features you tend to discover along the way for example, the analytics portion.

Comments: Our organization has used Newton for 6+ years. In that time we've grown from a staff of 50-60 in 4 locations to a staff of 300+ in 12 locations nationwide (and one international). Newton has been able to accommodate that scaling and is easy to teach to hiring managers from each location. And every time we've worked with their customer service team they've been really responsive and helpful. A few pieces aren't totally intuitive, but overall it's not too hard to use. Definitely recommend this system.

Comments: Newton is a very well-thought out applicant tracking system built by former recruiters who understand the recruiting process and the things we most need to maximize our efficiency. They are continuously releasing new features and involve the user base with testing and asking for ideas. My company recently went through an implementation of a new Careers site and Newton was there every step of the way to ensure the integration with Newton was seamless and I could continue to take advantage of all the awesome benefits of Newton, such as deep-linking, analytics, and maintaining a consistent employer brand. I am most appreciative of the time Jonathan Chenard, Vice President, Services devoted to pre-implementation design and also during the launch. I would also like to thank Jimmy Li from the Newton Support team for being there through launch of the new site.

Comments: Intuitive, extremely easy-to-use tool. No manuals ore user training required (though training is available and expert sessions are great). Workflows are natural and the recruiting dashboard makes it easy to manage a busy desk day-to-day. The analytics and reporting functions are top notch and enable us to keep track of key performance metrics without keeping separate spreadsheets or manually assembling data from multiple systems. Customer service is great and they keep making improvements to the software to make it even better.

Comments: We have been using Newton for about 3 years now, and every time we have a question or issue Newton's customer support team is very quick to respond and help us work through the problem.

When we first started using Newton, we were a recruiting team of 3 (Recruiter, Manager, and Admin) and now we have doubled our recruiting team in size and Newton has helped us be nimble and adjust to the ever-growing needs of our team members and our Company.

We enjoy the continual updates and enhancements to the system and have benefited from a lot of the changes over the years.

Comments: Our organization needed an affordable ATS that we could implement fast without compromising quality. All of Newton's features are included in their price; what you see is what you get. We hire 30 to 40 people a year and this system allows us to manage the process from initiating and approving a position requisition through the offer approval in a paperless environment. It has brought efficiency to our process and reduced our time to hire by at least 15 days.

Setup was fast and easy. The explanations within the system for set up and various actions are straight forward and easy to understand. They even alert you to the pros and cons of enabling/disabling/changing certain settings. Training managers has been a breeze. It is user intuitive - far less complicated than other ATSs I have used.

Customer and Tech Support have been great and the response time is fast. Their Help section is easy to use and actually is helpful!

I cannot say that there are any cons based on our needs. Overall, Newton gives us what we need to manage recruiting for our small to mid sized organization at a fair price. We are very happy with Newton.

Comments: I haven't done a customer review before though Newton impressed me so much I felt the need to share. Last year I was charged with researching and presenting a business case to implement an applicant tracking system. After conducting numerous interviews, going over my criteria in an ATS and product demos, Newton stood out for me as an intuitive, progressive, and most importantly customer service driven company. From my initial contact with the sales rep. to customer/tech support on the back end, the staff has been very helpful and timely to answer my questions. Newton exceeded my expectations, I have been using them for a year now and I'm happy with our decision.

Pros:
Very intuitive for Recruiters and Hiring Manager's
Easy for Candidates to apply
Great Customer Service and tech support
Continuous improvement-adding new enhancements and features
No hidden fees
Tech support responsive in a timely manner
Mobile device optimized (to fit on your screens smart phone, ipad, etc.) for both applicant and HR

Cons:
Not Newton itself though the add-on ChequeFit assessment tool feature. Once an applicant clicks the Submit button to apply for the position the next page comes up explaining about taking an assessment and automatically redirects you to that website. However, there isn't adequate time to read the information on that page which results in getting a high percentage of candidates that end up not taking the test.

Pros: I just started using the system and so far the system is very user friendly. I think even if you were not good with computers, it would be an easy system to use.

Cons: Again, the system is great. The implementation of the product, not so great. I felt like I was in the dark the whole time we were going through the process. I sent emails and left voice messages without any responses. When I had my training on how to use the system, the trainer spoke of all these things that I should have been informed about that I was not. I had to go and ask about those items, example how to set up google calendar in the system. Everything is working smoothly now but it was a lot of stress and not knowing the next steps.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep on top of your system representative and make sure they give you all the information needed.

Comments: I have been a user of Newton Software for two years now at two different organizations. From the ease of the implementation to the simplicity of the day to day use, the Newton ATS is by far the best system on the market. The usability of the product is amazing, but one thing that continues to impress me is the feature upgrades. Newton pushes out multiple upgrades each year and these are done seamlessly without any additional cost to the users. The system knows how recruiting works, you don┬┐t have to customize it to best practices, it already knows. Thank you to everyone at the Newton team for making my job easier.

Comments: I was an early adopter of Newton and was always very happy with the product. I have since switched to Taleo due to being in a much larger organization and there are many days where I wish I could go back to the easy-to-use design of Newton. I gave an overall score of 4 out of 5 stars because Newton does lack some features that Taleo and other larger systems have for overall Talent Acquisition process, but nothing is as good of a recruiting tool as Newton (or as easy to use). There is no doubt I will be using it again some day.

Comments: My name is Chris and I am the Director of Recruiting for a sales and marketing company called CLEARLINK. We are located in Salt Lake City, Utah and have close to 500 full-time employees. When I joined CLEARLINK almost 10 months ago, we were using Taleo for our applicant tracking system. While Taleo has a lot of functionality, it just wasn't easy to use for our recruiters or hiring managers. I then began the task of researching, evaluating and eventually selecting a new ATS. I chose to go with Newton for many different reasons, with the main ones being, ease of use, cost, and customer support. Since implementing Newton (which was an easy process), our efficiency has increased substantially, as well as, our user adoption. While we don't require our hiring managers to actively use Newton, many of them do. I highly recommend Newton to any company that is considering implementing a new ATS.

Comments: I have been involved in the staffing industry for over twenty years. I have been involved in using, selecting, and implementing most of the well-known ATS systems on the market in the past 15yrs. The ONLY ATS I will use now is Newton. These guys have nailed it. It's simple, effective, and does the things we use day to day exceptionally well. Newton doesn't have all the bells and whistles other tout in their systems. But, the reality is, we rarely use those items anyway and all they do is clutter the system and screens. Newton is clean. It's simple. The dashboard is simple and effective. Navigation is as quick as it can be. You don't have open screen after screen like other systems or backtrack for days. I give it four stars for functionality ONLY because it doesn't have all the functionality of other systems. But, like I said, it has the functionality I need to track and improve staffing. It's simple to implement as well and their team is always there to assist. It's the only ATS that I have found that hiring managers enjoy using and we all know that if they like it it can make our job easier. Newton is a no-brainer if you are going to implement an ATS.

Comments: Novotus is a Recruitment Process Outsourcing company that leverages the best people, technology, and processes to deliver blazing fast and wicked smart recruiting solutions. We work with over 200 clients; many have existing ATS solutions, many have nothing and for many we select, implement and manage their ATS environment. For years, we have been forced to work with tools designed by software companies to run, and supposedly provide efficiency to the recruitment process...ouch! When we met the Newton guys and did the demo, we immediately recognized that someone finally "got it". Efficiency gains in recruiting come from keeping recruiters on the phone and swiftly moving candidates through stages of the process while all involved parties have total visibility as to what's happening. They get it...and built a tool that does it! We have implemented Newton with several customers over the past year and a half and continue to move forward with some larger implementations. My criteria is simple - implement fast, train quick, get productive, instant visibility through real-time reporting (you need to check out the reporting!), swift customer service, frequent product evolution (they listen to their customers), big enough to deliver and small enough to give a darn! Implementing Newton in our environment was a technology breakthrough we had been searching for and the industry had been missing. We found it.

Comments: I have been using Newton Software for a long time now. It has been the main ATS I have used for my last 3 jobs. In fact, when I was hired on to a small company as the first full time recruiter, the first thing I did when I started was sign up for Newton! I have been a happy Newton customer because I know that when I am using Newton no candidate will slip through the cracks. In my last position, I helped bring on 45 employees in 10 months, which meant we went through a TON of candidates and openings. I could not have managed it as the single recruiter without an ATS that is focused on recruiting. Currently, I am part of an organization that has 50 openings and as you can imagine, it makes for a very busy recruiting team. Thanks to Newton we are not only able to manage the process, but we can effectively give insight to anyone in our organization interested in hiring at any given time. I love it!
