Newton is the brainchild of former recruiting professionals that began developing the product in 2004 after becoming frustrated with existing commercial recruiting technology. Having run corporate recruiting programs for over 10 years prior with paper resumes, email, spreadsheets and legacy software, the founders of Newton wanted to leverage the benefits of internet technology to help them provide a better service to their clients: they wanted something that would make rolling out, ramping up, managing, and improving hiring programs easier for them; they wanted something that offered a more collaborative recruiting experience for all users; and they wanted something that was simple and easy-to-use for all users. After demoing a lot of recruiting products and even purchasing some, they all fell short in at least one area of the founders’ needs. They soon realized that they would have to build this system if they were truly serious about providing better services.

Newton Software was officially launched on January 5th, 2009. As the first product offered by this newly formed, autonomous company, Newton had the advantage of having been tested, and refined in real-world recruiting situations since late 2004. Unlike most start-ups, they had a mature product to start with, something customers could buy, and a product that was proven. The founders of Newton Software will be the first to admit that starting a company that offers hiring software during a recession was at first daunting. But Newton was greeted kindly by industry analysts and customers alike because of its innovative, process driven, easy-to-use approach to an old problem. And they have been steadily growing their customer base since their inception.

We walk the walk with you.
We use our product every day. We store all our sensitive, confidential data on the same servers that our customers use. We trust our entire business to our products and security policies. You can feel comfortable that we’re walking the walk with you.

Everything together in one place.
A key advantage to web-based software is that all your data is centralized and accessible over the web from any computer at any time. You can’t leave something on the wrong computer since everything is stored in one place on the web. You can get to it from anywhere. Safe, secure, and password protected, of course.

Your data is safe and secure with us.
Our state-of-the-art servers are protected by biometric locks and 24-hour surveillance. Our software and infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. The traffic on our network flows behind an enterprise-class firewall to keep your data safe.

You’re always using the latest and greatest.
Unlike traditional software that requires you to download and install updates yourself, our products are updated automatically. Whenever you use our products you’re always using the latest and greatest version.

There’s nothing to install, ever.
With our software there’s nothing to download or install. Just log in with the web-browser you already have (Internet Explorer 7, Safari, or Firefox). It’s just like your online bank or web-based email program.

You’ll never have to ask “Is it compatible?”
Software used to only be available for certain platforms. There was Windows software, Mac software, etc. Our software works on any platform with a web browser and internet connection. Mac, Windows, Linux are all supported.

Everyone you trust has access to the data.
Since everyone you work with logs into the same centralized account, you have a single database with everything in one place. No more worrying about who has the latest information: Everyone has it.

You can work from home, work, or on the road.
When you use web-based software your office is everywhere. At work, at home, a hotel, at a client’s office, even on your mobile phone. You data is accessible anywhere with internet access.
