Newton Announces Powerful New Candidate Search Capabilities
SAN FRANCISCO – Dec. 20, 2016 (PRWEB) – Applicant tracking system and recruiting software company, Newton Software, a division of Paycor, Inc., today announced a host of new product features and updates designed to address the evolving recruiting needs of small and medium-size employers. Newton’s re-designed candidate search functionality allows recruiters and HR professionals to quickly and easily make use of recruiting data.
According to the Employer Association of America, 62 percent of employers say recruiting is becoming more difficult and 31 percent report dissatisfaction with their current recruiting efforts. As jobs become harder to fill, the value of a company’s recruiting data grows exponentially. Each submitted application becomes a collection of data, so that even if a candidate isn’t a fit for the current role, their files are kept on record for future use. Most employers have thousands of applications on file, making finding candidates for specific jobs a daunting task.
Newton’s new, advanced Candidate Search makes sorting through data
easier and more efficient than ever. The new Advanced Candidate Search
boasts over 15 new search filters allowing employers to search by
• Commute radius
• Skills or tags in resume and employment applications
• Current or past employers
• Notes and interview feedback
• Salary history
Many of the features were inspired by client feedback from members of Newton’s loyalty program, Newton Elite. Elite’s product suggestions have driven innovation across the company and are regularly included into the product roadmap. Newton was created by recruiting professionals longing to make a better applicant tracking system, and this methodology continues to drive product development.
“Recruiting information is the currency of every employer’s recruiting program,” said Joel Passen, Newton’s Head of Marketing and Co-Founder. “With this newest enhancement, we’re empowering employers to rediscover candidates that are familiar with their brand and allowing companies to leverage the investment they’ve made in attracting previous applicants.”
Newton, a Paycor company, is the leading applicant tracking system designed to help small and medium-sized employers hire. The company was started in 2009 by corporate recruiters with the goal of developing hiring software that improves recruiting processes by offering powerful products that are easy-to-use, easy-to-purchase and easy-to-activate. In late 2015, Newton was acquired by Paycor, a trusted company offering intuitive HR and payroll solutions, to create an all-in-one HR Solution built on client innovation, customer success, and intuitive design. Today, Newton is used by over 1400 employers that enjoy great customer service, free support, an intuitive product and constant innovation. For more information, click here.
