Pros: Our previous job posting and applicant tracking system was quite old and the user experience for both recruiters and applicants was far from ideal. Newton greatly simplified the job posting process by integrating with Outlook for interview scheduling, allowing mobile feedback from hiring managers (so that they did not need to enter the platform if they did not want to), and having dashboards which quickly showed status of jobs for the recruiters. The application process for job seekers was fast and easy, resulting in our receiving far more applicants per job than the previous tool. Overall, Newton was a perfect fit for our needs as it allowed our recruiters to focus more on seeking candidates (since entering jobs was much easier) and we are getting more/better candidates given the expanded reach and ease of use that Newton provides our job seekers.

Cons: The main thing that we did not like was that the analytics dashboards and tracking were all Flash-based, but that was updated in the most recent platform update, so now our recruiters do not have to worry about Flash plug-in issues. Otherwise, we are quite happy with Newton.

Overall: Recruiters now have more time to seek optimal candidates as they need less time in the platform to post jobs, schedule interviews, interact with hiring managers, etc. Newton does a great job in blasting out our job postings to the various job boards and tracks where our leads are coming from. Our job seekers have a much easier time with applying for jobs and since our business hires at over 40 locations internationally, having a simple job application process is key for getting applicants who do not speak English as a first language. The job listing integrates seamlessly into our company web site. All good!

Comments: Newton is feature rich. After six months of using the product, I've still only scratched the surface of what it can do.

Pros: The program allows the user to create a job posting from scratch or to modify existing ones. There are numerous templates for job posts or emails that can be used out of the box or can be modified and personalized. Newton has agreements with Indeed, LinkedIn and Glassdoor and job postings can be automatically posted to these sites for free. It also allows for posting directly to the company's employment web site as well as the company's Facebook page. The system allows the poster to create knock-out questions so that interested applicants who don't meet minimum qualifications are automatically excluded and the receive a message instantly why they are not eligible. Another vital function is that, once an applicant shows interest, they can be followed in the system every step along the way. You can track them through phone interviews, face to face interviews, email correspondence, and hire, involving other employees who may need to be involved along the way. One final key point is that, if the company is a customer of Paycor Payroll and HR systems, Newton interacts with those seamlessly and a prospect who is hired in Newton will automatically be transferred to Paycor with all of their information.

Cons: While the system is rich in features, the menus are not intuitive. There can be multiple menus on a page and it can be difficult to navigate to a feature you are looking for. I find myself spending a significant amount of time in the 'Help' section.

Comments: I love Newton and am in the process of proposing that we bring it to my new employer (which has never had an ATS and desperately needs one).

Pros: Newton is very user friendly and flexible enough for people who are not tech savvy. As a recruiter working with multiple project managers, I loved working with a system that allowed me to seamlessly move through workflows independently or alongside hiring managers. Newton is always updating its features and thinking about new things to add to the platform. I also love that it works well with your organization's career page, and may also sync with an HRIS. The Gravity App was great feature to use as well at my former organization (lots of fun-loving, competitive staff).

Cons: I didn't experience many challenges with Newton. Occasionally, emails we sent from Newton wouldn't reach candidates (they would end up in spam). To troubleshoot, we just sent things directly from Outlook. We alerted Newton and the problem was fixed pretty quickly.

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: If you're looking for a low-cost applicant tracking system and don't have a large variation of jobs, then this tool will work for you. If you have multiple jobs and are working with candidates through several of the positions, Newton creates a lot of extraneous duplicate work that ends up being more time consuming and makes it no long cost-effective.

Pros: The price is less than other applicant tracking systems. It is also very easy to use. The user interface is very easy to read resumes.

Cons: There is a lot of duplicate work that needs to be done. If you are considering a candidate for multiple jobs, then a candidate must be duplicated. You can then combine the duplicates later as the process goes through and the candidate is eliminated from certain jobs, which will then combine the notes, but it's a lot of extra busy work. The candidate workflow can also be confusing to some recruiters and hiring managers.

Pros: When we first implemented Newton the user adoption was amazing. The interface is so user friendly that hiring managers were able to begin using the system within minutes.

Cons: There is very little that I do not like about the Newton system. One of the only shortcomings, which is already being addressed, is integration with other systems; background providers, HRIS systems, etc.

Overall: Time savings, efficiency, better applicant experience, the list goes on and on. All, for a very reasonable fee.

Cons: Two-click sign off? (such a minor thing). I can't think of anything negative about the product, service, cost of use. They always seem to be anticipating, and leading customer/client needs.

Overall: Accurate, efficient recruiting , hiring, and onboarding of new employee for a very reasonable cost. Particularly important for smaller employers.

Pros: I like the Visibility of candidates that are in progress on a job. I can easily see how many candidates we have for a position, who has been reviewed/phone interviewed or interviewed. Also the reports make pulling AAP reports easy as long as you keep on top of dispositioning candidates as you review them. Also I can easily share resumes with the hiring managers.

Cons: Would be nice to be able to download an open jobs report with candidates in progress so I can use it for other reports.

Overall: confidence that compliance is taken care of, never lose a canddiate's file, easy to post jobs on external sites.

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.

This is a very easy tool to use and track all the information on our applicants.

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: It connects to our payroll, it provides a quick snapshot of our hiring practices and it maintains historical records of our applicants. We've had some apply multiple times and we now have a better way of maintaining documentation. I can keep reminders and options up-to-date so we dont forget deadlines and its a great portal for working with our applicants.

Cons: There has been a bit of a learning curve in a few areas. We utilize the system a little differently so I had to figure out how to use Newton in a way that worked for us *it wasn't hard*

Overall: Ease of use, and helped organize my applicants way better than the Indeed portal or other applicant tracking systems do out there.

Love it.

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: 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.

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.

Pros: Ease of onboarding to Paycor. Has dramatically reduced the amount of time to add new hires and log applicants. Like the reporting style as well.

Cons: duplicate entries should auto link, or not allow a person to apply for the same job in the same 12 months. They should receive an alert that they already applied and can resubmit and update their current application. Also a chance to do this in Spanish, but translate to English words

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.

Pros: Visibility of candidates is good, easy to use, instant posting to sites which is awesome! In general, very user friendly for hiring managers.

Cons: This is the first ATS we have used at our company and are still getting used to some of the features. The biggest miss is not being able to fund roles on Indeed via the site. I have to do externally via email with Indeed.

Overall: Application tracking in compliance, easy to get resumes to hiring managers, easy to review notes and look back at candidates.

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: love this program. Newton really stood out amongst other ones. Most of my employees enjoyed it and wished it was everywhere.

Cons: I would not have any. I think most programs should look just like newton, it is the best in the market.

Newton is mine and the organization's first experience with an ATS. It has made us much faster!

Pros: The workflow is well organized and it's also very helpful that all approved team members are able to see each step of the process.

Cons: Email template formatting seems very archaic and leaves a lot to be desired. It's also confusing for applicants who apply through Indeed for the email communication.

Overall: More organized position filed, improved hiring time, improved experience for hiring manager and applicant.

Pros: * Great for basic applicant tracking
* Allows you to build scorecards for specific roles
* Moves the applicant through the hiring process
* Integrates with background screening products
* Provides basic analytics

Cons: I would have liked to see the ability to customize the recruiting process. Some managers perform more than 1 face-to-face when interviewing. It did not allow the ability to add that into the process and properly report metrics.

Overall: Great basic system for managing applicants. Smaller size companies would be thrilled.

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.

A great ATS.

Pros: The software was easy to set up and easy to use. There are lots of sample letters that can be customized your company's needs. The Newton software allows us to post our position to our website and to the public at the same time and allows for us create "tracking links" to track the sources we use to advertise.

Cons: you can not save an email to draft if you have to hop off to do something else.
the echo feature is not perfect .

Overall: This system keeps you accountable and organized and identifies where the bottlenecks are in your processes. It also allows for easy to use reporting and keeps by applicant flow data very clean.

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.

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.

Cons: I wish I had more control over turning off certain functionalities for certain members of my firm that are on a hiring committee. Not all of them need to be able to access all of the details about individuals exploring employment with our firm.

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: 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!

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.

Very versatile ATS!

Cons: My comments disappear, so I can't see them and have to move from one browser to another to find them. Also, applicants pop up that weren't there for more than a week with old dates on their profile, so I don't trust that Newton is giving me the most updated and complete information.

Cons: We had a few hiccups while setting up the system but their customer support team had them fixed within 24 hours.

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.

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: 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.

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 the 4th ATS I've implemented over the years. It's functionality and ease of use is superb; and the pricing is almost to good to be true. Unless you're a huge organization that requires heavy workflow customization, you should look no further than Newton.

Pros: Easy to set up. Easy to learn. Common sense dashboard and features. Great automation. Integration with Outlook. Email template function is superb. Drag and Drop. Great configuration tools.

Cons: Very few cons. I can't think of any at all. It fits our needs almost perfectly. I wouldn't recommend for a 50,000 user organization. But that's all.

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.

Cons: This applicant tracking system is great for small and medium size companies but not as much for large companies.

Pros: Free LinkedIn postings, really great support team, very easy to use interface

Cons: Hardcoded recruiting process can't be customized to a specific business

Recommendations to other buyers: Be fair and help others make better judgments. When making decisions to buy, things can get really confusing really soon. Stick to what your main USP is and look for that in the product.

Pros: Newton's comprehensiveness makes it very powerful. It simply has all of the functionality that we need from an ATS solution, with plenty of styling options for the job posting pages that it generates.

Cons: Nothing for me personally, but I could see how the admin experience might be more than someone bargained for if they're not especially technically oriented.

Comments: Too much money for what you actually get. Cheaper products will do the same thing.

Pros: Easy to use, pretty standard system. Customer support is very responsive with issues that arise.

Cons: Features are not as effective as they could be. Searches are not that simple to perform through old resumes. They tell you to try to trick the job boards.
