Overall Newton Software is a great and user-friendly ATS that is designed for small to medium-sized companies. This is a cloud-based solution with a mobile-ready interface for access on any device. The ATS has a built-in recruiting dashboard to track the entire recruiting lifecycle from job postings to onboarding. Recruiters can organize scheduled interviews, manage thank-you letters and request job approvals via intuitive dashboards. When switching to Newton ATS the set-up was a breeze compared to other systems I've used in the past. Many of the settings are pre-configured but can be easily changed to meet your companies needs. With just a few easy steps, you are able to post a position on your company website as well as post the position on job boards that you use(ex. Indeed, Glassdoor, etc). This software is very user-friendly and is simple to change job postings. It's a great organizational tool by helping you manage all of the candidates that you want to consider for a position. It has simplified our HR needs and professionally displays them on our website. The software program is easy to use and can be managed from anywhere.

Newton - Good product for small to midsized corporate implementations

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Software Advice

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.The Job Reqs Dashboard and the reporting are its strongest features

Excellent tool for small to medium size businesses who need an internal applicant tracking system

Used daily for 6-12 months

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.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.

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.

Nothing Better Than Newton!

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.
