San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Newton Software, a leading provider of applicant tracking software for small and medium-sized employers, announced today that they have released new functionality called ‘Echo’ that will dramatically impact user adoption and further enhance the user experience of their popular applicant tracking software.
Newton Echo is free for all users of Newton’s applicant tracking software and is a key component of a suite of upgrades made available to all Newton users today. The new functionality makes it simple for users to change the status of job applicants, capture interview feedback, and approve jobs and offers using email. With Echo, users are not required to sign in to the applicant tracking system to complete common tasks like these.
There are two parts to Newton Echo: the Comment and the Command. When any user replies to an Echo-enabled email sent from Newton, the system is automatically updated with a status change and any comments made by the user are tracked. This new functionality is specifically designed to improve the user experience for hiring managers and executives that have historically balked at using applicant tracking systems.
The following are some of the actions that Newton Echo will facilitate without requiring a login from the user.
1. Selecting an applicant for a phone screen or interview.
2. Providing interview feedback.
3. Approving or denying jobs and offers.
"Simple tasks should only take seconds. With Echo, people can change the status of candidates, capture interview feedback, and approve jobs and offers using email—no login required,” says Joel Passen, Newton Software's Head of Marketing and Co-Founder.
“At Newton we’re always looking to make hiring simpler, smarter, and safer. We've always been the ATS company that cares about improving the process. Newton Echo is the simple and smart answer to busy hiring managers and executives that don’t have time to log in to their applicant tracking system. With Echo, your managers keep the recruiting system up-to-date just by responding to email,” Passen goes on to say.
Newton Software will continue to add functionality to Echo in subsequent releases and will announce another major upgrade to their recruiting software that tackles employee referral management within the next 90 days.
