    18 Reasons Why One App is Better for Production Payroll and Accounting

    The demand for remote capabilities and digital solutions in production payroll and accounting is here to stay. Forever.

    And GreenSlate is the only all-in-one app there is to meet this demand. It helps productions reduce their footprint, improve their day-to-day workflows to save time, and maintain business continuity in case of emergencies.


    If you’re tired of working around different systems or trying to piece together electronic signature apps, fillable PDFs, digital approval stamps, third-party document storage systems, etc., our one app solution is the only way to go.


    GreenSlate client productions don’t need multiple applications that “integrate” and talk to each other, because everything is already built all in one app to enable productions to work in an efficient and sustainable way.


    Here’s the rundown on why one app is better


    ✅ A single platform. One database: Built from the ground up. 


    ✅ Full support for remote digital end-to-end workflows: From onboarding to post all within one web-based app.


    ✅ More control: Customize access and set up automatic approval flows.


    ✅ Designated approvers by person or by role: Indicate the order of approvers, indicate whether an approver can be skipped, designate who needs to sign, and set up conditional approval steps based on amounts.


    ✅ Notifications: Keep everything on track, all the time.


    ✅ All digital signatures and approvals: With history tracking that allows easy digital signatures collection.


    ✅ Create and bill POs: Quickly generate and email PDFs, including backup documentation, directly from the app.


    API real-time data: Operate more efficiently with seamless data flows from one corporate system to another. 


    ✅ The Chart of Accounts Mapper: Automatically map your production’s Chart of Accounts to a studio or network’s Chart of Accounts.


    ✅ Automated audit trails / backup. 


    ✅ One login for everything: Data feeds directly to the General Ledger from any part of the app - no logging in and out from one module to another.


    ✅ Secure multi-factor authentication (MFA): MFA ensures that your account/personal information is protected by requiring additional passcode authorization when signing in on a new device.


    ✅ Chart of Accounts and General Ledger info filtering: Without exporting.


    ✅ A crew-friendly app:  Available on mobile (both iOS and Android) for easy usage from anywhere.


    ✅ Crew empowerment: They can easily submit purchase orders, check requests, petty cash advance requests, petty cash envelope submittals, and more from their own devices.


    ✅ Self-service crew access: Crew can help themselves anytime with access to paystubs and tax forms.


    ✅ Less data entry: No inputting timecard hours, then exporting them to your Hours to Gross (HTG) system, then exporting them again to your payroll provider.


    ✅ Transfer stored data: Transfer your data from project to project, so you never have to enter the same data twice.


    GreenSlate’s efficient, all-in-one digital solution enables a spectrum of impactful business upgrades, while also ensuring your workflows are resilient to whatever challenges this changing world throws your way.
