Sling is trusted by tens of thousands of customers just like you
Reduce your abandoned call rate by scheduling just the right amount of agents, no matter your team size or structure. Use a template, or build your own schedule and be done before your next call. All while minimizing labor costs and complying with your local rest and break laws. Your team views their assigned shifts from anywhere and receives custom notifications to remind them. Plus, post available shifts and allow teammates to swap, freeing you up to focus on customer experience.
Track team members’ time on the clock down to the minute and sync with your payroll to ensure accurate paychecks and reports, every time. Employees clock in and out of shifts right from their phones, or from a central kiosk. Enable GPS geofencing to verify teammates are on-site when they clock in. Optimize your schedule by seeing who shows up on time, late, or no-call no-shows.
Keep your entire team engaged and on message with streamlined communication. Send private and group messages, create custom newsfeed pages, and deliver organization-wide announcements from your desktop or mobile device. With Sling’s communication tools, you stay in control of the message while everyone on your team stays in the loop.
Labor is one of the largest expenses for your call center operation. Make the most of your talk time by tracking hours worked and setting the most efficient schedules for your team. Plan ahead of payroll by viewing time on the clock and potential overtime as you schedule. Stay on budget by comparing labor costs to projected and actual revenue to get the most out of your spending.
Keep everyone on task and boost your service level by handing out clear assignments. Add tasks specific to any employee or shift so everyone knows what to do. Create a task from scratch, or use a premade template for recurring tasks. With task assignments, your team is more self-sufficient and gets more done.
Makes scheduling easy
I have almost 100 employees in my department all with different times of when they are available. Certain employees have set schedules so I am able to schedule them indefinitely with the same schedule and do not have to worry about their shifts being scheduled each week.
Avoid payroll and reporting issues before they occur and save time calculating time on the clock. Track the cost of your labor compared to your cash flow. Sync employee timesheets with your preferred payroll software, or export reports for down-to-the-minute accuracy. Sling simplifies your payroll process while improving accuracy for every paycheck.
Don’t spend time worrying if your schedule is compliant with local labor laws. View overtime hours and account for holiday pay as you schedule. Give your teammates enough time to rest between shifts with clopening alerts and break time built into their shift. If anything is out of compliance or needs your attention, Sling lets you know.
Never worry if a license or certification has expired again. Attach important files to teammates’ profiles to see who is certified for what. Keep contracts, records, or anything else that matters to you right next to your team members’ profiles. You even receive alerts when documents are about to expire, so you never have to worry about slipping out of compliance.
