Product Details

What is Sling?

Sling is a SaaS-based online employee scheduling application that aims to present an easy way to schedule and communicate with deskless employees. Sling employees companies across industries, some including food service and hospitality, healthcare and caregiving, call centers, and remote work.

For scheduling, Sling’s schedule maker enables users to set up employees' schedules, manage time off, mark availability and manage shift trade requests. Users can set up rules to stay on budget or schedule overtime as needed, getting notifications of overlapping shifts or double-booking. Employees can sign up for shifts they'd like to work by scheduling available shifts on a first-come, first-served basis, or through an approval from an admin. Scheduling templates can be created and saved for future use.

Beyond scheduling, Sling enables managers and employees to communicate and chat through the platform, as well as receive alerts, make time-off requests, as well as create tasks and mark them complete. Managers can distribute tasks across a team and make it clear what needs to be done during each shift. Employees can access to-dos from their phones. To-do lists and checklists can also be templates for reuse. Task management is included to keep employees’ goals clear and reduce confusion, ultimately to increase job satisfaction as well as reduce frustration and turnover.

With its mobile app, employees’ mobile phones can be used as location-aware time clocks, allowing employees to punch-in and punch-out with geofencing, or optionally at a designated terminal. Sling can prevent early clock-in or forgotten clock-outs by simply enabling managers to edit timesheets at the end of each period.With alerting, its time clock features aim to reduce tardiness, time theft, or carelessness from increasing labor costs.

Through the app, users can send private or group messages, to more easily collaborate on tasks or communicate and explain scheduling or workplace events, and make announcements. Managers can set up a newsfeed to keep everyone on the same page.

Finally, Sling’s integrations with various restaurant and PoS systems (e.g. Toast), ecommerce and retail systems (Shopify, Square), and payroll (ADP, Gusto), enable Sling users to save time by working within familiar systems.

Sling was founded in 2015, and is headquartered in Brooklyn. It can be started for free with advanced features available via a 30-day trial. Users can sign up with a Google account, and apps are available on the Google Play Store, the Apple Store, and in the Shopify marketplace.
