Event & entertainment employee scheduling

Make sure your guests have a good time by scheduling just the right amount of support, no matter your team size or structure. Manage the party from anywhere by creating, editing and distributing schedules instantly. Employees view their assigned shifts anywhere from their mobile device and can even help you find replacements if they can’t make it.

Event & entertainment employee messaging

Keep your entire team engaged and on point with robust messaging and communication. 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, shift, or however else you need. Sling’s communication tools keep you in control of the message while everyone on your team stays in the loop.

Geofencing for events & entertainment

Ensure employees are clocking in from their assigned location with geofencing. You pick the spot, set the maximum radius, and Sling confirms whether or not they’re on-site. So no more clocking in from the couch or car and racking up labor costs.

Event & entertainment labor costs

Labor is one of the largest expenses for your event and entertainment operation. Make the most of your labor spending by tracking hours worked and setting the most efficient schedules for your teams. 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 busiest jobs.

Event & entertainment employee time clock

Track time on the clock down to the minute. Employees clock in from anywhere with mobile time clock and geofencing to guarantee they’re where you need them. Shift alarms and break reminders take the burden of remembering off of you by alerting your staff for you. Prevent early clock-ins and set up mandatory clock-out times to save money over time. Sync or export timesheets for quick and easy payroll.

Best app for workshifts

Everything is so easy to manage and make any change.

Spend less time on event and entertainment scheduling and more time on your guests

Clarify the job at hand with task management

Whose turn is it to clean up again? Keep everyone on task by handing out clear assignments. Add tasks 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 knocks out to-do’s time to catch the next set.

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 right next to your team members’ profiles. Even receive alerts before docs expire, so you never have to worry about slipping out of compliance.

Save even more time with third-party integrations

Sling integrates with many of the applications your business is probably already using, saving you time exporting and importing data. Sync your payroll, point of sale, and more applications for a seamless workflow to get the job done. Your employee, sales and more data will be right where you need it to be, without needing to switch back and forth.
