Ad Valorem, the award-winning accountancy firm is today announcing it is partnering with IRIS Software Group (IRIS) to minimise admin, make business processes more efficient and improve client communications.

Over the coming months, Ad Valorem will implement an array of IRIS’ accountancy software solutions including modules from IRIS Elements cloud platform to support its entire suite of services, from accounts production to specialist tax reliefs. The announcement comes after a competitive selection process which took all areas of the business into account, including support for future acquisitions. The solution will be used by a team of 70 specialists across two UK offices.

Toby Perkins, Transformation & Analytics Director at Ad Valorem comments, “It is now more important than ever to develop long-term partnerships to support firm growth. The team at IRIS deeply understands our technology requirements and shares our passion to provide innovative solutions to help clients in all aspects of business.

“Not only does IRIS allow us to produce all our work in a single production system but the ease of use will substantially boost our productivity and increase the effectiveness of our client communications. Working with the industry-leading software provider aligns with our vision of modernising and humanising SME accountancy.”

The partnership will see both parties working together to realise Ad Valorem’s long-term vision. This includes regular business reviews with a dedicated account manager to develop new services at pace and deliver next-level client support. Ad Valorem will also help drive the development strategy of IRIS Elements, a key part of keeping them at the forefront of industry thinking.

Elona Mortimer-Zhika, CEO at IRIS Software Group says, “Our technology will enable Ad Valorem to further unlock the power they offer beyond compliance, helping them stand out from the crowd and focus on aspects software can’t handle – essential business advice for clients. We are excited at the prospect of helping transform the way Ad Valorem operates, freeing time to focus on client development and firm growth.”   

Toby Perkins continues, “Ad Valorem is delighted with the overall solution, responsiveness and IRIS’ visionary thinking. Numerous senior members of the team were involved throughout the process and really took time to understand our requirements and the importance we place on working with a partner who shares our vision for the future.  “In fact, we were really blown away by IRIS’ overall approach, its cloud vision and plans to deliver it. We are delighted with our choice to partner with them, and they with us.  We believe this partnership will help us compete in the talent space, integrate acquisitions faster, and it demonstrates our strategic commitment to invest in our systems, data and analytics, all to enhance our client experience.”
