Getting Started

Greenshades makes getting started easier than ever by offering a hands-on approach with no extra cost to you for payroll integrations. We understand that every use case is unique, so we create a project plan specifically suited for your business. When implementing our more complex products, such as payroll, you will receive a dedicated implementation specialist to shepherd you through the process.

UKG Pro streamlines the implementation process by giving organizations visibility, collaboration, and a plan to fit your unique needs. UKG has created a seamless implementation process, however, it comes at a premium price and the process can be complex and time-consuming.

Our Customers Say It Best
“Greenshades reduces the time required to accomplish certain tasks and makes the process more efficient and organized. This, in turn, frees up time to dedicate to the process improvements that sustain the company’s growth.”
Angelo Tremolada
Corporate Controller, CPA, CGMA
“This software is much less expensive than any other product I have reviewed. For the price, it is easy to use and I like that the information entered in the Greenshades software carries over to our payroll system entry for entry instead of a general "dump" of information on the accounting side.”
