Pros

It's a really complete solution that handles all the requirements for a bussiness like us, the schedulling is very complete and the control fo the employee's timesheets is awesome.
Customer support was amazing through the whole process. I find they tried their best to keep in touch EVERY week to see how we were doing with the app and what we needed help learning.
I also enjoy the ease of inputting employees into the system and the ease of placing employees into shifts. Its quite easy to use and its functionality is great throughout all levels of use.

Pros

After doing our research on many types of scheduling software, we have found that Sling best fit our needs through value, functionality, and amazing support.
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.
Being able to use the integrated time clock is also a great feature. There are just so many feature and customizations that it would be an asset for any type of business at any size.

Cons

Many glitches when it comes to connecting with RUN or scheduling, but the biggest problem is the inefficiency of the sales team whether the chat or phone. They are simply HORRIBLE.
As a team, we find ourselves frustrated with Deputy on the daily.
The product messed up or payroll month after month.

Cons

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