Your business is unique and so is your payroll. Greenshades gives you the flexibility to run your payroll in a way that reflects your uniqueness, with flexible pay cycles, accommodating businesses with seasonal hiring and high churn. Greenshades empowers organizations to run their business in a way that is most cost-effective and efficient for you, you can pay out unscheduled bonuses or off-cycle pay runs at your will, no matter your business size.
ADP offers a cookie-cutter solution that is rigid and dictates processes to you. Off-schedule payments become off-cycle and cost you money to process. ADP does offer the ADP Enterprise HR package that allows you to configure solutions for payroll and HR to fit your complex business needs, however, this solution is only suggested for large enterprises with 1000+ employees.
The Greenshades payroll solution automatically updates, calculates, and deducts taxes based on jurisdiction, smoothly handling multijurisdictional scenarios. Other withholdings such as garnishments such as child support are prioritized and applied automatically to payroll. Along with staying compliant with items such as overtime and ACA compliance.
ADP offers an add-on service, ADP SmartCompliance, to navigate the complex compliance environment. ADP SmartCompliance is an extension to your payroll platform to help companies stay compliant through ACA, wage garnishments, payroll taxes, and more.
Greenshades can be an affordable solution for your business you pay per number of employees per month (on an annual contract). There are no extra costs for running additional pay runs or issuing off-cycle checks. Greenshades does not require a “float”, which gives companies the ability to keep and control their cash flow. Greenshades helps you run payroll and alerts you when your payroll taxes are due, instead of holding onto your funds.
ADP can be costly for many businesses due to implementation costs and extra fees. The lower-tier package, known as ADP Essential Payroll, does not include essential payroll and HR functions you may have to upgrade to the HR Plus, Hiring Advantage, or Performance Plus package. With solutions such as ADP, you are also required to fund an account for payroll taxes.
