One powerful system, for all

Disparate data and multiple, disjointed systems and processes are a breeding ground for inefficiency. Easy-to-use, IRIS Ed:gen transcends the back office, empowering all staff to excel in their roles with access to the same, accurate, and up-to-date data.

Consolidated workflows

Time is a precious commodity in schools and one that’s unnecessarily consumed by manual ways of working. IRIS Ed:gen streamlines and speeds-up infinite tasks by consolidating workflows, typically performed manually or within multiple disjointed systems, to save time and resource and reduce financial overheads.

Enhanced security

Robust data security comes as standard with IRIS Ed:gen, along with seamless links with Microsoft and Google, single sign on and two factor authentication. And with cloud-based access, not only can you work anytime from anywhere, the inconvenience of multiple logins and disruptive manual system updates are a thing of the past.

One system, supporting multiple roles and responsibilities

The remit of school support staff and administrative personnel is vast. It’s also common for school staff to straddle multiple roles and responsibilities – jumping from one remit to another throughout the working day.

Using one system to complete tasks for one role, and a separate system to complete tasks for another zaps time and, let’s face it, can be incredibly frustrating.

IRIS Ed:gen offers one system capable of making light work of all tasks under all remits.


Exam Officer

Exam season is stressful enough without adding time intensive processes and manual workflows to the mix. IRIS Ed:gen supports smoother exam seasons, empowering exam officers to effortlessly schedule exams, issue timetables, and communicate results in a single, intuitive system that’s linked with all pupil data.

Designated Safeguard Lead

Protecting every child in today’s climate can be a challenge. That’s why DSLs need powerful safeguarding tools at their disposal to ensure no child slips through the net.  IRIS Ed:gen provides the most comprehensive view of all pupil data. DSLs can easily create automated alerts that proactively identify potential issues, enabling timely intervention.


IRIS Ed:gen helps SENDCOs to better meet the individual needs of each child, while minimising the associated administration – from supporting special school curriculums to planning the medical needs of specific students. And when SENDCOs add a child’s special requirements to one area of IRIS Ed:gen, it will automatically cascade throughout the system, guaranteeing that a child’s precise needs are appropriately catered for at each school touchpoint.

Admissions Manager

Managing admissions is a multi-faceted, and at certain times of the year, intense role. IRIS Ed:gen makes it easy by creating a seamless admissions process – from registering for open days to enrolling new intake and keeping parents and students updated and engaged throughout. An admission manager’s dream, the MIS can even be used to run and measure the performance and conversion rate of marketing campaigns.
