Newton’s integrated interview scheduling software offers employers the easiest, most flexible way to coordinate, schedule, and confirm job interviews.
Newton, the leading provider of applicant tracking systems (ATS) and recruiting software for small and medium-sized employers, announced today the release of advanced interview scheduling tools for its users. The new functionality – developed by Newton’s in-house team – will be offered to existing customers of its cloud-based hiring software platform at no additional cost. The tools will come pre-integrated with popular email platforms like Outlook/Exchange and Google’s Gmail.
“With our experience as corporate recruiters, we know first hand that interview scheduling is one of the most time consuming, iterative tasks for recruiters. We also know that until now, most applicant tracking systems have added interview scheduling as a “check-the-box” feature,” said Joel Passen, Head of Marketing and Co-Founder of Newton. “We’ve cracked the code on fully-integrating interview scheduling features into our ATS product and this is just the beginning. Set-up is simple and our users get a best-of-breed solution without purchasing a third party product.”
Here’s an overview of how Newton’s interview scheduling tools work:
Check Interviewers Availability
Users assemble interview teams and check their availability from one screen. The tool pulls information from interviewers’ corporate calendars in real-time.
Create Automatic Invitations
Once the interview team is selected, users send interview invitations without leaving the Newton ATS. Users can customize email templates so interviewers have the job candidate’s resume, relevant documents, and any special instructions including interview guides.
Invite Job Candidates
Job candidates are sent on-brand email invitations to confirm interviews. Users choose email templates that auto-fill the name of the interviewers, their titles, and any special instructions or directions designed to prepare and confirm the candidate for the interview.
Confirm and Reschedule Meetings
When schedulers are finished sending the invitations, smart alerts are easily configured to warn interview schedulers if an interviewer has not confirmed an interview or needs to reschedule.
“We’re excited to offer another tool that makes recruiters more efficient and creates consistent recruiting content for interviewers and job candidates,” says Passen. “If we can free recruiters from the administrative burden of scheduling and, at the same time, help everyone involved with job interviews to be more prepared, everyone wins.”
Customers of Newton’s applicant tracking system (ATS) can start using the new interview scheduling functionality now at no additional cost. Newton plans to use the new functionality as a platform to launch additional interview optimization features in the near future.
