IRIS @ Accountex 2016

By Sam Thomas | 17th May 2016 | 14 min read

At 5pm last Thursday afternoon, the curtain came down on Accountex 2016 in London’s ExCel Arena...

After two fun, engaging days of meeting, greeting, demos and discussions with accountants, bookkeepers, consultants, marketers and everybody in between, we can now look back on what was another extremely successful event for both us and our brothers- and sisters-in-arms from Keytime. 

It was a pleasure and a privilege to see so many faces, old and new, stopping by to engage with us. Our teams manning our workstations were working non-stop on both days, previewing our software to potential customers and showing some of our current ones a number of functions & updated commands that they may not have been aware of.

Crucially, we won a fiercely fought battle over who was giving away the best freebies at the conference. Keytime’s stress balls and jelly beans were worthy competitors, but in the end we feel we pipped them to the post with our delicious Swiss chocolate & IRIS brand sweatbands. It was an awfully hot day, after all.

Then again, we’re a little biased.


Our stand’s theme this year revolved around the Marginal Gains sporting philosophy (hence the hashtag above). We explained to our many curious visitors how, by combining it with our market-leading software, accountancy practices can benefit from significant improvements to practice efficiencies, reductions to the burden of compliance and the strengthening of their brand in an era of ongoing digital revolution.

If, like them, you’d like to know more about this union, you’re in luck. We’ve created a host of eBooks, guides and tools designed specifically to highlight why the marriage of a marginal gains strategy with IRIS's accounting software makes perfect sense for you and your practice.
