Leading shift scheduling solutions company finds home in POS platform

Deal Flash

Sling Inc., a market-leading SaaS-based employee scheduling, communication and management solutions company, has been sold to Toast Inc., the all-in-one digital technology platform built for restaurants.

Following its launch in 2018, Sling focused on ease of use, intuitive features and best-in-class user experience for shift-based employers and their staffs, and quickly captured a significant market share in the hyper-competitive employee scheduling, communication and management solutions space in North America across several key verticals, including restaurants, hospitality, healthcare and retail operations.

I truly did not fully understand all the effort that goes into selling a company when I started the process, but now I know that it is much harder than actually building one. I truly appreciate your help and I am grateful to have you all on my team to make this happen the best way possible. You guys work miracles!  HELGI HERMANNSSON, CEO, SLING INC., ICELAND
