We were the first to offer an alternative to the standard “Employer of Record” model, helping productions save thousands in unnecessary fringe charges, and we continue to offer innovative solutions for the production office.
We know it can be unpredictable and that every production is unique. We offer options designed to fit your needs and are here to help you through the challenges that arise, to keep your employees satisfied, and to help streamline and automate your workflow while keeping your records in order and easily accessible.
Once we receive a company’s information, we can set up payroll for a production in as little as 5 days. For large production companies, we utilize our proprietary tools and a proven model to convert any required data to our format.
Go digital and save time. Set up your production with the fastest, most accurate, intuitive, and secure payroll software tools with digital timecards, direct deposit, and startwork, and you will vastly reduce any guesswork or potential errors.
Setup made simple. Our digital startwork allows you to onboard your crew in a matter of minutes as they can quickly submit their documents for approval.
Save time with customizable reporting options—save your filtered views for easy access later or share the views across your team. Quickly access all available invoices and previews, as needed.
Timecards keeping you busy off the clock? Submitting and approving hours to get timecards in for payroll processing throughout production is quick and easy with digital timecards.
We have complete payroll auditing features to meet your needs at any point during your production or payroll cycle.
Set up custom approvals for your specific needs, or use our preset settings for timecard approval, grossing, and digital startwork.

More than you think. Production can be unpredictable… and things don’t always happen on a strict schedule. The last thing you want to worry about is whether your payroll is going to happen on time, and accurately. Yet, all too often, the shortcomings of your payroll…

With Eco Tracker, you’re able to measure the ecological footprint of your production, form by form. You’ll be able to view breakdowns and totals of all the paper, carbon, and water saved by using Greenslate as your payroll provider, as well as the amount of carbon you’ve prevented from entering the atmosphere. Basis for Eco Tracker calculations:
Making 88 sheets of 20# 8.5″x11″ releases 1 pound of CO2 1 sheet – 1 88th of a pound (0.01136363636 / pound) 1 pound = 0.0005 US tons therefore: 1 sheet of paper = 0.00005681818 tons / CO2
One tree can create 1 2/3 cartons or 16.67 reams of regular 8 1/2” x 11” copy paper 500 sheets per ream Therefore: 8335 sheets per tree
1 sheet of paper = 0.00011318619 trees
1 sheet of paper takes 3 gallons of water to produce
