Sling is an employee scheduling tool with workforce management capabilities that’s used by some of the biggest companies in the world.
With a product that’s free (for scheduling and internal communication) and very reasonably-priced (for all the other WM features), Sling is saving countless hours of work for thousands of teams.
Although they are mainly a cloud-based scheduling tool (with a mobile app), they also offer a task management module, a labor costs calculator, a time clock, and more.
Implementation times for Sling will vary greatly depending on the size and scope of your operation and workforce management needs. However, since they’re a free tool with a free trial, getting access to the product and starting out takes minutes.
Sling has a self-service help center and email-based support.
Sling integrates with several HR and payroll platforms, many of which are the usual suspects when it comes to managing a business with multiple points of sale. Some of these are Toast, Shopify, Square, Gusto, and ADP.
Sling’s basic scheduling and internal communication tool is completely free for unlimited users and locations. After that, the Premium plan starts at $2 user/month and Business is $4 per user per month. Sling also offers a free trial for the paid plans and you can downgrade to the free one at any time.
