Sling for Managing Teams

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Has helped me manage a team of 70 with constantly changing shifts (days/times)

Pros:

Love this products ease of use and ability to manage a large team schedule. Allos you to code people for different positions, set recurring shift times and even has a group chat to easily send out team notifications ect. Send each person's schedule directly to their phone. Great for managing a younger demographic.

Cons:

There is no way for the team member to post a shift for coverage, everything has to be done by the manager (this could also be a pro, depending on what your looking for)

A Streamlined Timeclock System for Billable Contractor Hours

5.0 3 months ago

Pros:

The timeclock system is very easy to use, and you can effortlessly apply filters to execute payroll and AR procedures.

Cons:

The customer service leaves a lot to be desired. Not all agents are bad [Thank you [sensitive content hidden] for saving us!], but most of the time the responses are generic, and provide no real solution.

Love and Hate Relationship

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: We specifically chose this app because it integrated with Gusto, but the integration does not work well and the payroll report integration with gusto, does not work at all. Customer service is super hard to get hold of, they don't know what is going on, and it has been 3 months and the issue is still not fixed. It was difficult transferring everything over to sling and now we are stuck with them until we can switch over to a new company. Very disappointed with the integration and the lack of support. They have no phone number to call, it is only through a chat, that they take long to respond.

Pros:

Creating, tracking and duplicating shifts works really well

Cons:

Integration with Gusto and customer support.

ED SLING SCHEDULING

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: It works with a staff of over 50 associates and makes scheduling much simpler with that number of staff. Covering 12- 15 different shifts per day in a 24/7 department.

Pros:

The ease all the staff can enter the dates they want to work, so schedules can be covered. Cuts down on phone calls of management to see who is available for uncovered shits and days.

Cons:

I would like the Staff- Off that day Days to be at the top of the Schedule so the person doing the scheduling would know who not to look for on that shift.

Review

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: Sling has scratched an itch I didn't know I had. It does everything I need it to at a decent price.

Pros:

Great software that ties into my pos. Free for staff makes it even better. Easy to use and easy to teach

Cons:

The only thing I can think to improve would be the ability to look over various saved schedule templates easily.
