“Homebase shines as the best employee scheduling software on the market. It is easy to use for both managers and employees, and it provides both you and your staff the tools you need to easily communicate and keep track of upcoming shifts.”

What Sets Homebase Apart from Sling

Free Time Tracking

Homebase offers time tracking in our free package.  Sling has no time tracking capabilities, so it’s not a full end-to-end solution.

Robust Scheduling Tools

Homebase has more scheduling functionality that Sling doesn’t offer.  Homebase has department-level scheduling, calendar syncing, and late and overtime notifications.

Labor Cost Reporting at Your Fingertips

View your real-time labor costs for the day, compare costs and sales over time, and look at hourly breakdowns.  With Sling, you don’t have these easy-to-use reports to manage your labor costs.

US-Based Phone Support

Our dedicated support team is ready to help. They’re available 7am – 5pm PT weekdays.  Ask Sling for help, they’ll give you an email address and an online forum. Homebase has a drag-and-drop schedule builder that is modern and easy-to-use.

“We switched to Homebase after trying a couple other scheduling and time management apps. The other apps we tried were getting expensive and limiting as we continue to grow.”
