Online client approval of documents - what are the options?
As a company that is constantly growing in the cloud, we are delighted that our IRIS OpenSpace product has had the distinct honour of being shortlisted for the UK Cloud Awards this year.
For those who are unfamiliar with IRIS OpenSpace, it is a secure way in which you and your clients can upload, store and transfer confidential documents and files in the cloud.
We created this unique product to address security and convenience. Bringing effortless and secure collaboration to accountancy practices and their clients.
The fact is, Royal Mail is becoming too expensive, unreliable and less secure; manually filing your papers can be tiresome and archaic. Collaborating online will also reduce your costs and keep your fees competitive.
If your clients are still using a shoebox/lever arch file to collect documents to be sent to you once a year… stop now, times have well and truly changed. Don’t get stuck in the dark ages.
If you are a bit more technically savvy, you will have looked into consumer file sharing websites and found many file-sharing sites fall foul of the EU Data Protection Act with your clients confidential information being stored outside the EU. IRIS OpenSpace complies fully with UK rules on data protection and the provisions of the Electronic Communications Act.
With IRIS OpenSpace, you can eradicate the paper mountain, so you always have a secure place to file your important documents – accessible anywhere by only you and your client/s.
Security is paramount to us, that’s why IRIS OpenSpace has added layers of encryption to ensure that your data is never compromised.
This January, we saw unprecedented levels of usage, with over three document approvals being performed per minute during peak times – that’s a staggering 2,000% increase in electronic approvals on last year.
IRIS OpenSpace is available to all UK Accountancy Practices, you don’t have to be an IRIS Accountancy Solutions user – simply register your practice here and start securely transferring files with your clients now.
If you are an IRIS user, IRIS OpenSpace is fully integrated with your existing suite, at no added cost. We’re offering all accountants 1GB of free storage when you register for IRIS OpenSpace.
