Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – to you and your families wherever you may be. I’d like to take this time to look back over the last 12 months at IRIS and give a few of my highlights.
The past 12 months have seen the payroll industry undergo major changes. Back in April Real Time Information was introduced, which was the biggest change to payroll in over 70 years. The IRIS team worked tirelessly to ensure that our full range of payroll software would be RTI ready by April. By July IRIS customers passed a major milestone by successfully making over one million PAYE submissions in real time with IRIS payroll software.
The summer saw the launch of our new website which was designed to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience, with improved navigation and functionality throughout. The launch of our new website also presented the refreshed IRIS brand along with consolidated IRIS products all under the same roof.
The entire IRIS payroll line-up was transformed this year by the introduction of cloud functionality with IRIS OpenPayslips, the secure e-payslip solution. We also launched a number of other key products and services – the Automatic Enrolment Assessment Module, a bespoke pension report service and cloud based payroll with IRIS OpenPayroll.
Automatic enrolment, which was introduced in 2012, began picking up speed this year. Just like with RTI, IRIS is offering a complete automatic enrolment solution, ensuring that you all get the help you need to prepare for your staging date.
Finally, we were thrilled to announce our acquisition of KashFlow, the cloud-based bookkeeping software developer, further extending our position as premier cloud-based software provider to small businesses across the UK.
From everyone at IRIS, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
