This page provides an overview of the Company Tab that displays by selecting Company -> Add Company Tab from the Main Menu.

The Main Menu, User Dashboard Tab, Client Tab, Policy Dashboard, Policy & Billing, Company Tab, Vendor Tab, and Management Tab are the primary interfaces and dashboards within Newton.

Find a Company

A Company Tab is created by selecting Company -> Add Company Tab from the Main Menu.

Multiple company tabs can be opened at the same time, similar to tabs in a browser. When an operator is finished with a company, the current tab can be switched to a new company profile, or the company tab can be closed entirely.


The company drop list provides a quick search feature which automatically searches company names or codes for partial or complete matches. Select the drop-down box, enter the company code or name in the drop-down field and press <Enter> or <TAB> when finished.

Example: There are dozens of company profiles, many with similar names. After entering "trav”, all matching results are displayed.


By default, inactive companies are not included in the drop-down list. To load an inactive company, first select the "Include Inactive Companies" check box.


Create a Company

To enter a new company into Newton, you should always search existing companies first to avoid creating duplicates. Remember to include inactive companies.

Company Tab Interface

The company tab contains company information such as contact numbers, and data tabs for different data types such as contacts, policies, attachments and more.

The main menu is not specific to the Company Tab, displayed at the top of the Newton window.
