Benefits of Global Shares Stock Plan Administration Software

You will benefit from a system that is easy to set up, intuitive to use and offers you and your employees a fully customized solution. In addition we offer you:


  • Transparency on Fees & Expenses

    We know our clients do not like surprises. We all have budgets, and none us want to be in a position where we have to let the CFO know that our budget has been completely blown. Therefore our T&Cs allow for an annual fee, set at the beginning of the Contract, payable annually, up front.


  • Technology

    EquityAdmin has redefined the online share plan administration industry globally in terms of customisation, adaptability, ease of implementation, integration, functionality and user experience. The most modern software solution on the market, EquityAdmin is a web based system, delivering transactions and reporting in real-time. It has the highest degree of configurability, allowing processes and requirements to be easily set per jurisdiction, per payroll, per employee.


  • Service

    Our service model is delivered with a refreshing client-centric, friendly and professional approach. We deliver our services through a team-based business model, serviced by a dedicated Share Plan Analyst who is fully involved in the implementation and responsible for the ongoing day-to-day administration of the Plans. The Analyst works closely with your assigned Client Relationship Manager, who ensures that Global Shares is constantly aware of and meets your ongoing and changing requirements.


  • Timely and Accurate Reporting

    Our system is tailored to you to provide complete control over your data. Reports can be pre‐scheduled to meet your specific timing. Key stakeholders (e.g. Company Secretary, HR, finance and tax functions) can access the data online through our self‐service too.


  • Participant Portal

    EquityGateway is the most advanced online equity compensation platform, which includes the ability to personalise the screen to your branding specifications, thereby capturing the ‘look and feel’ of your company, which creates a more familiar environment for participants.


  • Automation

    We continue to drive manual processes out of the share plan life cycle, thereby reducing costs, eliminating risk and providing all stakeholders with a much-improved equity experience.


  • Access to Expertise and Thought Leaders

    Our team has the experience and expertise to address complicated and difficult issues. Members of our team are recognised by peers as industry leaders and regularly present at conferences run by industry organisations.
