IRIS Analytics

A powerful, cloud-based analytics and decision-making tool for partners and managers in accountancy practices.

  • Comprehensive insight into business performance through detailed dashboards
  • Easy to read graphics illustrating IRIS practice data 
  • Filter the data and drilldown for detailed analysis. 
  • Gain better understanding, uncover weaknesses and take appropriate action

The Challenge

Many accountancy partners currently lack the tools to easily assess and monitor their firm’s performance. They need this insight to help them make informed decisions to improve efficiency and ensure their practice runs smoothly. IRIS Analytics arms partners with this key information in a quick and easy to view format, all in one place. Without this insight into key financial, operational and productivity KPIs, partners may miss vital information, leaving them unable to respond.


The Solution

IRIS Analytics provides a complete insight into the practice KPIs and main drivers. It displays reports in a series of dashboards for easy analysis and comparison, enabling users to drill down and explore any issues or anomalies. It helps accountancy practices to assess year-on-year performance, identify which clients are most profitable, which services provide the best returns, and, where appropriate, evaluate team performance. Having easy access to accurate, up-to-date information also contributes to better business planning. IRIS Analytics helps identify potential profit areas for expansion, set realistic budgets, ensure prompt actions over outstanding debt and manage staff performance.


Benefits of IRIS Analytics

IRIS Analytics is ideal solution for accountants in practice to get a complete insight into the practice KPIs and main drivers. It provides details of how the business is performing at any moment and helps managers to make better informed decisions to drive efficiency and keep business on track.

Comprehensive insight

Access business critical information

Many business leaders find themselves ‘drowning in data’. With so much data available it can be difficult to create order and extract the appropriate information. IRIS Analytics structures the data into easy to use dashboards with the ability to drill-down into the details if required.

Partners can now understand who are their most profitable clients, comprehend new client gains and attrition rates and take action to minimise business impact.

Graphical representation

To make complex information more easily comprehensible IRIS Analytics presents the information graphically. The graphs are shown alongside and provide extra interactivity by allowing you to dynamically filter the detailed reports data  which helps getting a deeper insight and prompting better decision making.

Solutions can be easily bespoken to add further custom dashboards and combined with other data sources to provide broader and deeper scope of analysis
