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.

Pros

Customer support is amazing. Variations on sending alerts to the organization for all users are great due to some of our population not having the ability to receive a text message.
We have realized tremendous value in taking care of our employees and their families. They know we sincerely care and have invested in their safety.
The responsiveness of our Customer Success Manager is fabulous - I'm talking under an hour most times. Truly great experience all the way around.

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.

Cons

The inability to provide updated info to the threat intelTeam when you have first hand knowledge of an incident.
The only issue our company has had is some people getting the message twice. Out of 300 people, we have only had 2 complaints.
I sometimes see errors such as a message did not delivered to everyone.
