Leadership skills, like most abilities in life, must be earned through practice and hard work. However, there are many different ways to be a good…
Measure twice, cut once with the best construction scheduling software. Schedule just the right amount of help, communicate across teams and sites, and lower labor costs while tracking time on the clock. Sling gives you the best tools for your toolbelt to run your construction or labor crew.

Lay a strong foundation by scheduling the right amount of hands on deck, no matter your team size or structure. Build your perfect schedule and be done in time to place your next bid. All while minimizing labor costs and complying with your local rest and break laws. Your team views their shifts from anywhere and receives notifications to remind them. Plus, post available shifts and allow employees to swap, freeing you up to focus on the next big project.
Get exact measurements for employees’ time on the clock and sync with payroll to ensure accurate paychecks, every time. Employees clock in and out of shifts right from their phones, or from a central kiosk. Enable GPS geofencing to verify employees are on-site when they clock in. Optimize your schedule by seeing who shows up on time, late, or no-call no-shows.
Hear more 10-4s with streamlined communication. Send private and group messages, create custom newsfeed pages, and deliver company-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.
Employee labor is one of the largest expenses for your construction business. Save money on labor 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 increase your margins and profits.
Prevent idle time by handing out clear assignments. Add tasks specific to any employee or shift so everyone knows what to do and where to go. Create a task from scratch, or use a premade template for recurring tasks. With task assignments, your team has the winning blueprint.
Workforce management in the cloud
…it's good for workforce management and staff load distribution. It has a lot of features that will make a project manager enjoy it a lot. I also like the flexibility it offer for recurring scheduling.
Manage multiple crews working across job sites from wherever you are—at the office, on site, or on the go. Whether you have one crew in the field or 100, Sling helps you keep track of who is working, where they are and what they’re doing. Get your teams organized and focused with clear scheduling and communication to help you get the job done.
Never worry if a license or certification has expired again. Attach important files to employee 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.
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 employees enough time to rest between shifts with break time and reminders built into their shift. If anything is out of compliance or needs your attention, Sling lets you know.
