IRIS Financials: a streamlined school financial management platform

Schools need to make the best use of their funding and show that funding is making a difference. IRIS Financials gives you the data you need to make smarter decisions.

IRIS Financials is the financial management platform schools trust to allow them to navigate, understand, and manage their finances. Built on a unified ledger structure, all of your financial data is automatically consolidated into a single view.

Eliminate tedious reconciliation tasks, break out as many separate sub-ledgers as you need, and view your financial position in real time. And because it shows an accurate, real-time view of your position, the unified ledger is the ideal backbone to the rest of the IRIS Financials administrative suite, pushing and pulling data between different suite products with ease.
