Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.

RC

Ryan C.

Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Pros

Sling is the easiest and most useful application we have for our business. We love it and all of our employees love it.

RS

Rebecca S.

I must say, I do wonder how long it will remain free. It's a great product and certainly deserving of a monthly cost affordable to small business as well as large corporations.

JM

Jackie M.

Thank you Sling for generously offering such a great app.

LV

Lynn V.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.

FM

Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.

Craig F.

Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

Sling seemed to have constant problems loading, or randomly needing to reload, and then having troubles doing so.

RZ

Rob Z.

My personal feelings after having to pay such high prices for cable channels on the market we just had to drop them. Someone told us about sling and to try it.

Sometimes to the shows wont work or keep loading. They wont play or keep glitching it says a error has occurred to try later.
