We are a 1,200 person company with many global offices. Newton was a perfect fit for our needs.

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!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.

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

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).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).

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.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.

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