A streamlined trust financial management platform

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

Half of all academies trust IRIS Financials to help them navigate, understand, and manage their finances. Built on a unified ledger structure, all your financial data is consolidated into a single view. This provides the benefits of centralisation without sacrificing autonomy for schools. Tedious reconciliation tasks are eliminated, and reporting is a straightforward, accurate process.

Break out as many separate sub-ledgers as you need and view your financial position in real time. With an accurate, real-time view of the financial position across your trust, the unified ledger is the ideal backbone to the rest of our finance suite.
