Make IRIS OpenSpace your own space

Cloud-based document sharing technology adopted by 40,000 SMEs now customisable to the brand identity of each UK Accountancy provider

Really happy to say that our latest IRIS OpenSpace features are live and looking great! With lots of work going on the background (thanks development team) the new functionality is available to every customer - and all UK accountants from today...

In summary:

We've introduced new customisation features for IRIS OpenSpace, our flagship cloud document sharing & e-approval system. This means that we can support UK accountants in providing a fully branded portal for all their clients. 

The adoption rates of IRIS OpenSpace have been amazing but one of the capabilities that our customers have asked for is the ability to re-brand and customise their clients' OpenSpace experience - so that it feels like an integral part of their brand and their website. So the latest version of IRIS OpenSpace is fully customisable and fully brandable. Accountants can easily add their own logo and colour scheme and it's all available at no cost to the accountancy firm.

Early customer feedback has been great too!

“IRIS OpenSpace is a great time-saving tool that allows us to share documents with clients and gain their approval online very quickly.  Being able to customise IRIS OpenSpace with our own branding is great because it makes it feel like it is a part of our brand, and we feel it streamlines the client experience when going straight from our website through to IRIS OpenSpace.  It was very easy for our web team to implement and we’re delighted with the final result.”
