TEDxSF, find a TED Event in Your Area



I managed to secure an invitation to TEDxSF, an independent version of TED, at the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. I've never been to the Big TED conference but I've been a fan of the videos on the website for years. Calling TEDxSF a conference is not doing it justice. The event was more like a series mini-performances featuring musicians, entrepreneurs, scientists and change-makers.



All in all, independent TED events, TEDx,… Continue

So here's the deal. For the past couple of months, customers using our applicant tracking software have been asking for an efficient way to acknowledge candidates that don't make the cut.

Why We Built Instead of Bought: The Genesis of an ATS

OG Newton Interface Circa 2005. We've since ome out of the dark ages.





Does the industry need more recruiting software? Many think not.



We think that as long as the current offerings do solve the major problems, there is room for competition.



Recently, I received a request from an industry analyst to outline our history. Unknowingly, she made a in January 2009. Little did she know. But, how would she know? No one… Continue

Why the Recession is Good for You, the Buyers of Software. 3 Emerging Trends From the Fishbowl

“You better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin’”

Bob Dylan







The Fishbowl



A couple of weeks ago I learned that my co-workers call the office that I share with our CEO, “The Fishbowl”. The Fishbowl is the nerve center of Newton Software. Given our small footprint, the Fishbowl acts as the design studio, front office, communications center and test lab. Sometimes our co-workers might say it more resembles an… Continue

Summer Plans Revealed: More Innovation, Less Fish



“Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s jobs with yesterday’s tools.” Marshall McLuhan











I was at a barbeque in San Francisco this weekend and while everyone agreed that it’s nice that summer has finally arrived, our conversation inevitably meandered into talk of work and our summer work intentions. Alex, a partner in a small marketing consultancy, remarked how he planned to lay low and enjoy the summer, taking… Continue

How to Approach a Partnership with an ATS Vendor

Every so often I get asked by companies or individuals what I feel is the best way to approach a partnership with an applicant tracking system (ATS) vendor. This typically revolves around the introduction of a new technical integration the company has to offer. While it is important to note every potential partnership is different, I believe there are some factors that can maximize the partnership potential. Again, these factors might differ from ATS vendor to ATS vender depending on the type… Continue

The Strategy of Choosing an ATS

Surprisingly, the first step to choosing an Applicant Tracking System is not actually looking at the different options out there. As brought up by the folks at Aon Consulting, the first step to implementing an ATS is looking internally to determine exactly what you need. This may take some time and effort (two things people are not usually eager to give up) but in the long run it will actually make the… Continue

The ATS Guy Interview with Bill Vick

Several weeks ago I was contacted by Bill Vick from XtremeRecruiting.tv to do an interview covering the latest in applicant tracking system (ATS). It was a very nice surprise and compliment, yet I did get a bit nervous. To help ease my nerves, my wife told me to just have fun like Recruiting Animal did in his interview. While I didn’t really take the Animal’s approach, I still had a great time. Bill just posted the interview today. Here is the link:… Continue

There are lots of folks out there that simply like to build things themselves. This can easily be seen with home improvement and is backed up with the success of “How to” books and the DIY network. The same is true for software.

Applicant Tracking System Guides

There are a number of different applicant tracking system (ATS) guides available to help both HR professionals and recruiters narrow down on the vast amount of solutions. These guides typically come from separate angles ranging from ATS vendors steering clients towards their solutions to 3rd party sources with a large amount of ATS experience.



While I have created, reviewed, and purchased many of these guides, I haven’t found one all-inclusive guide that covers all of the features,… Continue
