Deliver outstanding customer service by scheduling the right amount of support, no matter your team size. Build your perfect schedule and be ready for your next flash sale. All while minimizing labor costs and complying with your local rest and break laws. Your team views their shifts from anywhere and receives custom notifications to remind them. Plus, post available shifts and allow employees to swap, freeing you up to take care of the business you love.
Track employees’ time on the clock down to the minute and sync with your 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.
Keep your entire team engaged and reduce turnover with streamlined communication. Send private and group messages, create custom newsfeed pages, and deliver company-wide announcements from your desktop or mobile device. Sling’s communication tools let 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 retail 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 sales to increase your margins and profits.
86 overlap and unclear 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 completes to-dos as quickly as they convert visitors into customers.

Sling makes my scheduling life so organized thanks to its ease of use! My favorite part is the ability to copy/duplicate shifts and/or positives between my employees.
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 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 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. Receive alerts when documents are about to expire, so you never have to worry about slipping out of compliance.
Avoid payroll issues before they occur and save time calculating time on the clock. Track the cost of your employees’ labor compared to your sales. 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.
