Get up and running with your umbrella business in minutes

A modern implementation of Accentra’s popular Enterprise Umbrella Software, Primo Umbrella is available as a cloud solution for startup and small Umbrella businesses – which means you can get up-and-running with your business in less than 60 minutes before spending a penny on the software.

If you are an established Umbrella business paying thousands of contractors already, we will install and configure the software on your web server in less than 24 hours for you to start migrating the data from your existing system.

Whichever category you belong to, Primo Umbrella is an enterprise-wide business system that doesn’t require any third-party payroll or accounting systems.
