How Greenshades Tackles Multi-Company

For businesses with multiple entities, keeping track of HR and payroll operations can be a laborious ordeal. However, with the right software, managing multi-company operations can be a breeze. We'll explore the benefits of using payroll and HR software that supports multi-company functionality and how it can help you streamline your operations.

How Greenshades Handles Multi-company

Keep your multi-company accounts separate while easily managing them under one umbrella inside the Greenshades system. With multi-company support, businesses can easily manage different EINs for different entities or departments, without the need for separate software instances.

  • Enter your company EIN
  • Set up as many workspaces as needed to support your multi-company
  • Each workspace is assigned a workspace ID to easily navigate between different companies

Inside the drop-down menu, the parent company can select between the different workspaces to easily switch between company accounts. Inside the system, you control who has access to which accounts.

The Benefits of Managing Multi-Companies with Greenshades

One Solution with Multi-Company Functionality

Implementation can be expensive so it is beneficial to be able to house all companies with one provider, and one account. Train employees on one system, pay one implementation fee, and if an employee moves to a different part of the multi-company, there will be no learning curve to understand a new system.  

Create as many workspace IDs as your company needs. Some providers may have a limit on the number of workspaces you can have, but with Greenshades there is no limit.  

Keep Operation Separate

Every business has unique processes, even businesses inside a multi-company. No two businesses are the same, so having the ability to run business operations for each workspace ID on your terms allows each business to still operate in its own unique way while being under one EIN.


Report on each business separately to gain deeper clarity into financials and labor performance. Running reports for each EIN separately allows you to compare results across multiple companies to identify areas of opportunity.
