Track your restaurant’s performance,
anytime, anywhere

Managers can keep track of real-time sales & labor with our 100% free mobile app for iOS and Android. You’ll be able to make informed business decisions on the go while staying connected to your team.

By comparison, SLING does not allow managers to view actual sales or labor data on the mobile app.

Actively monitor engagement
to reduce turnover

With proactive statistics on your employee’s engagement—such as late, no-show, sick, and picked-up shifts—you can stay ahead of your employee’s engagement and nip turnover in the bud. Engagement statistics are displayed in a customizable dashboard so that you can easily identify problems and foster a better work environment.

By comparison, SLING does not track the engagement activities of your team and will only provide feedback directly from employees at the end of shifts.

Keep managers in sync
with the Manager Log Book

By comparison, SLING does not offer any communication tools for restaurant managers to document and share information across shifts.
