Emergency services labor costs

Labor is one of the largest expenses for your emergency services operation. Make the most of your labor spending by tracking hours worked and setting the most efficient schedules for your crews. Plan ahead of payroll by viewing time on the clock and potential overtime as you schedule. Stay on budget by analyzing labor costs to get the most out of your staff’s time on the clock, and save the extra help for the times it really matters.

Emergency services task management

You’ve hired the best for your crews—now it’s time to see what they can do. Improve your teams’ performance and reduce employee confusion by handing out clear assignments. Add tasks specific to any employee, location or shift so everyone knows what to do. Create a task from scratch and reuse recurring tasks as templates to save time. With task assignments, your team is up to speed on the latest incident action plans.

This platform has saved me so much time, effort and money.

Spend less time on emergency services scheduling and more time on your mission

Keep track of credentials with employee documents

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.

Rest easy with time clock reminders to clock in and out

You’ve got more important things to do than keep tabs on every teammate’s time clock punches. Sling reminds your workforce for you, so everyone knows what time it is. Employees receive notifications when it’s time to clock in or out, and start or end a break. So now, they won’t forget—Sling reminds your employees to clock in and out of shifts and breaks.

Instantly sync employee timesheets to payroll

Avoid payroll and reporting issues before they occur and save time calculating time on the clock. Sync employee timesheets with your preferred payroll software, or export reports for down-to-the-minute accuracy. Track the cost of your labor compared to your cash flow. Sling simplifies your payroll process while improving accuracy for every paycheck.

Extremely easy, inexpensive, and comprehensive scheduling tool

Extremely positive; we were lacking an online scheduler and mobile access for about 2 to 3 years and the use of Sling made scheduling much easier (versus pen and paper) and reduced issues due to accidental missed shifts.
