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.

Pros: It's easiest to use ATS system out there and I looked at a bunch. New users in my company didn't even need to go to the free training session because it's so intuitive. Simple process flow from left to right and green light to advance the candidate a red light to disposition them. Dashboard and report analytics are easy.

Cons: Since Paycor bought Newton the pace of product development has slowed. Sad to see the entrepreneurial spirit of the company extinguished by big company bureaucracy. Falling behind on functionality like SMS integration. Cost becoming prohibitive for SMBs and larger enterprises need more robust solutions like iCims.

Overall: For our third party staffing agency this is our core operating system for job requisition and candidate activity. Simple intuitive user interface make for ease of doing business.

For the money Newton is far and away the best ATS!

Pros: When I started using Newton my company had not previously used any ATS. Newton's team (in coordination with Paycor) worked with my marketing department to implement the ATS quickly and without any hiccups. My life as an HR professional was immediately improved (at least the recruiting function :))

Newton's reps are personable and really do their best to understand your business so they can be of the best service to you.

Cons: None really. The are on the westcoast so if you're in a different timezone you'll have to wait for them to get back to you if you have a question. Not to worry however, they're always quick to contact you back and most answers can be found in the help section on their site.

Overall: I moved on to a new company that doesn't use Newton ATS and I miss it :(

Pros: The centralization of all job seekers to one landing place and ease of moving candidates through the hiring process. Unique custom tracking links are a great feature to track analytics.

Cons: I haven't been exposed to any poor experiences using the software

Overall: Managing hundreds/thousands of job seekers is simplified with Newton. All applicants filter through to one space, and can be seamlessly moved through the next steps with custom email templates, background screen capability (compatible when paired with Sterling). Also can use the unique tracking links to track which job ad sources (ie Facebook, Indeed) are yielding the best results.

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.

Pros: The software allows the user to track multiple applications with a very easy to understand progress chart. There is a function or customization for just about any hiring and interviewing process. Multiple locations can be tracked with one system. The ability to add comments throughout the process really helps the user stay organized.

Cons: Given that even very complicated hiring matrices can be accommodated, users with a simple hiring process can be overwhelmed by the options. Since these options cannot be hiding or deselected, this adds several more clicks to the process. When navigating into an application and then back to the dashboard, the applications rearrange into a diffrent order almost everytime.

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

Comments: If you hire not a frequent basis this software would be great, but if you hire more than 5 candidates a month I would pick something else.

Pros: Newton is great for companies that are very small and have a very simple hiring process. The cost of Newton is very inexpensive for smaller companies. They do webinar every single week you can sign up for to teach new admin.

Cons: I dislike most everything about this software. There is no sourcing tool that is available. They do have a lot of feature updates, but you do have to code it in yourself. We have had Newton for a couple of years and not once has a Newton rep reached out to us about new features or continuing our contract. You can't switch a candidate and put them in a different job, you have to create a candidate instead of moving their whole profile. The candidate duplication is horrible, people can use a different email and get pass the detection 100% of the time. Being able to integrate our HRIS system (ADP) doesn't save us time at all we still have to fill our most of the new candidate drop down boxes. You can't text a candidate or email a candidate without your developers doing the coding for it.

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.

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.

Love it.

Cons: Has recently been very glitchy; integration with WonScore has not been as fluid as we thought it would be.

Overall: Helps our recruiting process be that much simpler / easier.

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.

Pros: Newton is simply the best ATS I've ever used. Not only is it user-friendly, but it is extremely useful at the time of reporting data. Their customer service and response time is uncanny; they are very efficient at troubleshooting and making sure the issue is handled on a timely manner.

Cons: I wish they could incorporate a text-to-candidate feature (sort of like TextRecruit) for optimal candidate experience. However, it is still a great ATS at a very low cost.

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.

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

Overall: Ease of onboarding new hires and applicant log.

Pros: Newton is easy to use and their customer service is second to none.

And I like the integration with our HRIS and background check service.

Cons: The applicant link screens could be better. For some reason when I print resumes from the system without first downloading they print small. But overall I'm happy 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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

Pros: The ease in scheduling and moving candidates through the process. Love that everything is in one place and I can even move them into our payroll system.

Cons: There is a lot more I could do...but it's hard to find the time to train and learn! I could use more help with de-duplicating.

Overall: time and professionalism.

Comments: I had heard good things about Newton and they were true. The platform is easy to use for both managers and applicants, and looks modern. On the backend, we are impressed by the level of customization we get for one of the most affordable products on the market.

Pros: I was looking for an ATS that would allow some customization and lots of data reporting. Newton creates a robust database of applicant data that can be sorted and reported in various ways.

Cons: As we reviewed ATS platforms, the one thing I found to be missing was any sort of focus on diversity statistics or goals. Newton will allow us to search and create our own reports for DEI, but doesn't have much ready-made beyond the EEO report.

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: 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.

I love Newton!

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.

Pros: This is very easy to use. It simplifies the recruiting and hiring process. It would take us up to 6 weeks to get from the application process to the hiring process. Now it takes about 3 weeks.

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.

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.
