"IRIS Payroll for Accountants is the main software I use for the bulk of my clients. The biggest benefit I’ve noticed since using IRIS Payroll for Accountants is definitely the ease of use, for example it’s very easy to navigate through and rollback past data. If we get a request from a client, it’s really easy to go back and re-process the payroll."

James Toulson, 1 Less Worry Payroll Services, Feb 2017

"The level of service we've received from IRIS has been fantastic. I think a benefit of us building our relationship since 2007 has meant that the IRIS team have developed a real understanding of ACT and how we operate. This is a great help when it comes to dealing with our specific requirements."

Vicki French, ACT Conferencing, May 2016

"Initially we were looking to purchase payroll software so we could continue running our payroll in-house. We came to IRIS as a number of people in the business had experience with IRIS payroll software. However, we eventually decided that it would be more practical to utilise the IRIS Managed Payroll Service. The solution fit our budget perfectly."

Annette Canbas, A.M. Nomikos & Son, May 2016

"It’s a very user friendly system, it’s very easy to pick up, so as you’re running your payroll, the auto enrolment module is there also working and it’s pretty much instantaneous."

Lee Clayburn, AEL Markhams, Apr 2016

"The IRIS AE Suite™ helps me manage the legislation and assesses our 6 employees automatically each payroll run, the information then goes to our chosen pension provider. It doesn’t add any additional time so the complete payroll and auto enrolment processing only takes about 20 minutes to complete."

Stephanie Milne, Mathie-Morton Solicitors, Apr 2016

"My payroll is now quick and easy, as all of the figures are there already; and it also reduces stress as well as time needed when it comes to payroll year end."

Barbara Kurtz, Fishers Chemist, Mar 2016

"I’ve found IRIS and NEST Web Services to be efficient and easy to use, IRIS’ software has worked extremely well and done what we needed it to do, and the compatibility with NEST is excellent."

Claire Rigby, Lawn Pre-school, Mar 2016

"I am now saving approximately an additional half a day each month since using the IRIS AE Suite and NEST Web Services. The functionality is brilliant, it’s so much simpler to manage my payroll and auto enrolment requirements. Previously I had to collate the data and manually upload it to NEST whereas now the integration means all the data is there within a click of a button. I would definitely recommend the IRIS AE Suite and NEST Web Services to anyone else using NEST or considering using NEST."

Shahista Chaiwalla, Early Years Network Tower Hamlets, Mar 2016

"I found auto enrolment to be costly for our business, but it has been made easier with the combination of IRIS and NEST; using both has also helped me keep up-to-date so that the business maintains compliance to help ensure that we avoid possible fines. I was introduced to IRIS by my accountant many years ago, and have found their PAYE programme easy and extremely quick to use compared to in the past when I managed the company’s tax and National Insurance using charts."

Tania Lomas, Appliance Services AUL Ltd., Mar 2016

"I wouldn’t be surprised if IRIS Managed Payroll saves me a full days’ worth of work each month."

Tim Baker, Aldens, Feb 2016

"IRIS OpenPayslips is brilliant. When we first rolled it out, we had a very impressive 60% of our workforce adopting it straight away. When those that didn’t adopt IRIS OpenPayslips straight away saw their colleagues using it, they were easily convinced to take it on as well."

Simon Iliffe, Tingdene Homes, Jan 2016

"The main benefit of adopting the IRIS AE Suite™ is the fact that it keeps us compliant and that we do not incur the non-compliance fines. Furthermore, the amount of time saving that we can attribute to it. Running our payroll including auto enrolment now only takes us a morning to do, whereas if we were to do it manually, it would probably take us around 3 days per payroll run. "

Fiona Weir, Amipak, Jan 2016

"Yes, I would recommend the IRIS AE Suite™ no doubt about it. Especially now because it is so straight forward to use."

Rhonda Smyth, Rylands Nursing Home, Jan 2016

"Earnie Executive has definitely saved us at least one day per month because we no longer have to manually input the payroll data once we receive it. Now we can just import it into the software using the Spreadsheet Import Module."

Emma Paton, Belmont Group, Jan 2016

"I definitely think that using Earnie IQ saves us a lot of time. So much so that it means that we can focus our time on other things and be more accurate in other areas of the business."

Gill Kirk, Microlise, Jan 2016

"I’m happy with IRIS and with the Earnie product I use, it’s straightforward and does what it says on the tin. If anybody is unhappy with their payroll then I would recommend IRIS"

Phil Oliver, Energy Power Resources, Nov 2015

"We use Earnie payroll and it’s a really easy system to use; IRIS’ helpline is great if you have any queries just phone them up and they usually can fix it there and then, and if not they get back to you."

Angela McConnell, ProStrakan, Nov 2015

"Auto enrolment was massively complicated and I’m very impressed with how they’ve handled that."

John Yates, Royal Opera House, Nov 2015

"I would recommend IRIS purely because of their customer care, when you call IRIS their technical people are absolutely great."

Joanne McAndrew, Bellway Homes PLC, Nov 2015

"I love that KashFlow is in the cloud, that’s a real big advantage to me because it means that I can work [on payroll] at home or I can work on payroll here, any of the [employees] others can work on it and we can do things simultaneously as well from any location which for small businesses is very useful."

Sarah Pettigrew, Bray's Cottage, Nov 2015

"I have always found Earnie really easy to use I have tailored the system to my needs and find this is the one area of my job I don't have to worry about."

Chris Sutton, Bridge Insurance, Nov 2015

"With Earnie IQ we've been able to reduce the day to day admin of our payroll department by half. The speed of processing and range of reports allows us to be more proactive with our Management Information."

Mark Smith, The Collinson Group, Nov 2015

"As a large hotel chain we have a lot of different pay rates and being able to import this information directly from our rota system saves me time each month. There are also a lot of staff fluctuations and Earnie IQ allows me to batch process P45s - another big time saver. I would have no hesitation recommending Earnie to other hotels – the support is always very helpful and I have the flexibility to get the information I need quickly and easily."

Q Hotels, Apr 2015

"It makes my job easier to have an intuitive, easy-to-use system. Things such as being able to produce a journal file which feeds directly into our Navision accounts package helps save me time and ensure data is accurate. Getting the information into Earnie IQ is very straightforward. Managers of each park send me an Excel spreadsheet with details of items such as hours worked and I simply upload this."

Hoburne Holiday Homes, Apr 2015

"I expected to find moving to a new payroll system quite stressful but the transition has been very smooth. Earnie is so easy-to-use that I know we had made the right decision selecting it. One of the key benefits has been the amount of time we have saved. Not only can we link Earnie directly to our DMS system but I save about 15 minutes per record on things such as processing leavers"

Shaun Moody, Adams Morey, Apr 2015

"EARNIE is very flexible and can handle whatever pay rates and bonuses are required – we need to use a multitude of different calculations and EARNIE handles them all"

Lisa Andrews, Birchwood Group, Apr 2015

"Getting the information into EARNIE IQ is very straightforward. Managers of each park send me an Excel spreadsheet with details of items such as hours worked and I simply upload this into Timesheet Central which is then transferred directly to EARNIE IQ."

Dean Simpson, Greenhalghs Bakery, Apr 2015

"We haven’t looked at moving to another system as Earnie is very easy to use and meets our payroll needs. We use Sun Accounts and being able to export the journal file from Earnie to Sun is extremely efficient. It saves us lots of time and we don’t have to worry about errors being made when re-keying the information"

Sue Tazey, Portland College, Apr 2015

"The link to accounts was crucial when selecting Earnie – our information is extremely detailed with numerous cost centres involved and being able to transfer the information between systems saves us at least a couple of days a month in processing time"

Jacky Wesley, The Scout Association, Apr 2015

"In my eighteen years in payroll I have never had a reporting tool that is as quick and easy to use as the one provided with the software – it couldn’t be simpler to use. Not only that, reports can be printed, exported to Excel or turned into a PDF...what more could you ask for?"

Phillip Wells, Wirral Autistic Society, Apr 2015

"We previously used Sage Payroll but found this much too complicated. Processing the payroll took between two and three hours using Sage and just one hour using Earnie so we saw significant benefits straightaway. Transferring the data from Sage into Earnie was very easy and we were up and running straight-away"

Michael Wallbridge, Uniqlo, Apr 2015

"We have recently recommended NEST to a couple of clients who already use IRIS payroll software, as the data output taken from payroll can be easily transferred into NEST. Certain other payroll providers are quoting up to 25 week turnarounds for creating custom reports and this simply does not fit into the time-frame of many of our clients."

Jon Goodwin, Weird Fish, Apr 2015

"The initial transition went incredibly smoothly. I think this is largely down to the great team up in Stockton-on-Tees. They are so well organised and incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to running payroll."

Jane Freire, JMF Financial Services, Apr 2015

"Since introducing IRIS OpenPayslips we have saved so much time! I think IRIS OpenPayslips is a brilliant idea. It reduces waste and saves time and it’s so easy, it just works!"

Annette Canbas, A M Nomikos, Apr 2015

"Since introducing IRIS OpenPayslips we have saved so much time! Distributing our payslips used to be quite a time consuming task. We would have to distribute them around the office, or post them out to employees working from home or in the field. Now it is all done digitally and our employees can check their payslips from anywhere! I think IRIS OpenPayslips is a brilliant idea. It reduces waste and saves time and it’s so easy, it just works!"

Vicki French, ACT Conferencing, Apr 2015

"When we staged we went with a middleware solution to run our auto enrolment assessment and communications as it was free of charge. However, when we learnt that in a year or two there was a significant cost to continue to use the service, we reviewed our options. When comparing the middleware solution with the IRIS AE Suite™, it made perfect sense to move to the integrated and less expensive IRIS solution. I would recommend that anyone using middleware take a second look at the IRIS AE Suite™ as there are no surprise costs. In addition to this, it seamlessly integrates with your payroll to ensure that assessment and communications are simple and quick."

Janine Stone, Henshaw's Society for Blind People, Mar 2015

"I can easily upload the Cascade export file each month, and it contains all the basic data for staff, along with salary, weekly hours and bank details. As we have lots of new starters through the year, this saves me a significant amount of time and I don’t have to worry about errors when keying in the information. Ultimately, with Earnie and Cascade, everything works. With auto enrolment, for example, the software automatically assesses and re-assess the eligibility of employees so I know who needs to be automatically enrolled. I don’t have to worry about changing legislation because I know we’ll be covered."

Carole Tyson, YMCA, Mar 2015

"EARNIE is very flexible and can handle whatever pay rates and bonuses are required – we need to use a multitude of different calculations and EARNIE handles them all."

Louise Strange, Chemtura, Mar 2015

"IRIS are always at the forefront of legislation changes which I think is unique of them compared to other payroll providers."

Margaret Millar, Expro, Mar 2015

"Can’t imagine why any company wouldn’t invest in the IRIS AE Suite™. It is the whole package, our auto enrolment process is so streamlined."

Carol Arrowsmith, Taylor Bloxham Ltd, Feb 2015

"We've been using the IRIS auto enrolment solution to assess employees and to produce and distribute our payslips for a number of months now and are pleased with the results. It saves us a lot of time and helps reduce waste. Automatic enrolment is very complex and we have complete confidence that the IRIS AE Suite™ will ensure our clients are compliant."

Andrew Bodkin, Haines Watts, Jan 2015

"No problems whatsoever, we wouldn’t ever envisage doing it (Auto enrolment) manually when such a piece of software is available. It’s actually a full time job to stay on top of the assessment, Earnie is invaluable."

Marilyn Toone, T Baden Hardstaff Haulage, Jan 2015

"The IRIS AE Suite™ also saves us a lot of time on a recurring basis (around three-and-a-half days per payroll period), especially in three years when our employees will need to be re-enrolled into the pension scheme. The IRIS AE Suite™ is such an easy to use package, I would definitely recommend it to anyone – it saves us so much time to run."

Anita Billing, Massey Wilcox, Jan 2015

"I was terrified of auto enrolment to begin with but it’s been easy. What changed my mind? It is actually the IRIS AE Suite™. It assesses, produces all the documentation and I can check who has logged in to see their payslips or letters and who hasn’t. So from an administrator point of view, I know what the employees have done - I have total control."

Sandra Crawford, Silverstone Circuits Ltd, Nov 2014

"It’s slick. It does everything it needs to do. We believe the right place to do auto enrolment is in the payroll and the IRIS AE Suite™ actually does the assessment and communications for you."

Alan Chaplin, First Actuarial, Nov 2014

"The IRIS AE Suite™ helps to lighten the load. It takes away all of the little queries and the doubts about whether you’ve done it right yourself. It does all that thinking for you and saves so much time."

Liz Millet, Robert Dyas, Nov 2014

"The accounts production update is AMAZING! Interactive reports! Wow!"

Kelly Anstee, Tyrrell & Company, Oct 2014

"I've got to say you have excelled yourselves with IRIS OpenTax and IRIS OpenSpace. Brilliant pieces of kit!"

Heather Miller, AbleTax Compliance Services Ltd, Mar 2014

"I am very happy with your company on many levels thank you. Your staff are always helpful and patient"

Sue Hollamby, Grahams Hi-Fi Ltd, Dec 2013

"My overall impression of IRIS has been excellent in terms of sales and support, training and the software itself. I have found the software to be intuitive, the Help guidance invaluable, and the technical support at the end of the telephone has been both useful and reassuring when transferring 35 payrolls in one month!"

Sarah Withers, Autoenrolement Bureau, Dec 2013

"I have been very happy with the way that IRIS have improved their products throughout the years, which is very encouraging to small businesses, and you know that help is always available when you contact IRIS. and I would have no hesitation in recommendation IRIS to anyone."

Jean Millar, GD McFall Limited, Dec 2013
