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.

Great team to work with. I have been happy with our choice to switch from our large ATS to Newton

Pros

The value doesnt dissapoint. I kept waiting for what was missing. So far I have not been dissapointed. Larger systems dont come with state tax forms and change thousands more.

Cons

So far I dont have a con yet. I have liked everything. If you are looking for a large system with HRIS then this isnt for you. You can add on to the sytem.

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

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.

Newton Applicant Tracking System has it all

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Value for Money

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.

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.

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.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

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.

Advice to Others

Do a demo, you'll be impressed with their knowledge of recruiting and the ease of implementation.

Newton - Good product for small to midsized corporate implementations

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Pros

It is very easy to use. Have not had anyone really complain about using it, and minimal training is required for other users. Like that new features are always being added.

Cons

Emails going to Inbox instead of into program (candidate responds to an email generated in system but it goes back via my Inbox)

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!

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.

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

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.

Pros

Designed to flow in a way that makes sense! Almost every time I think, "you know what would be cool....", Newton has already thought of it or is thinking of it.

Cons

Only tiny gripe is that things glitch very occasionally on the analytics side...but that is a small price to pay for the fact that they're constantly evolving their product.

time and professionalism.

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.
