Get on scene faster by scheduling just the right amount of support, no matter your team size or structure. Employees view their shifts anywhere from their mobile device and receive notifications to remind them—so you don’t have to. Plus, take the burden off of yourself and allow teammates to swap and offer shifts, keeping your entire team ahead of unforeseen changes.
Command across crews and locations from wherever you are—at the station, in the field, or on the go. Employees clock in from anywhere with mobile time clock and geofencing to guarantee they’re on-site. Tailor communications and reports by location, and even compare costs by crew. Create location-specific to-do lists and tasks to customize each location’s duties. You’re the operations center while your team gets the job done.
Quick and accurate communication is vital to the health and safety of your community. Send private and group messages, create custom newsfeed pages, and deliver organization-wide announcements from your desktop or mobile device—instantly. Segment communications by location, crew, or however else you need.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
