Partnership gives educators a fully integrated suite of software so they can improve outcomes for students 

IRIS Software Group (IRIS) and Computeam are today announcing a new partnership which will enable Computeam’s school and trust customers to take advantage of the fully integrated IRIS Ed:gen suite alongside its essential on-the-ground, local support. 

Schools and MATs can be equipped with the best software, but those using it every day need specialist training and support so they can maximise efficiency and enhance educational outcomes. Building on their existing relationship, IRIS and Computeam will provide schools and trusts with both the tools and support required so educators can spot issues and opportunities, act quickly, step in at the point of need, and create the best possible outcomes for all pupils.   

IRIS Ed:gen provides schools and trusts with real-time intelligence so they can make quick decisions and have the bandwidth to focus on what matters most – teaching. Through seamless back-end integration, data from across the schools and trusts can be synchronised at the touch of a button, instantly integrating expenses, payroll and other finances into the finance system, removing the need for manual input. Providing a significant time saver and the key to disseminating accurate, near real-time information within the school environment.  

Simon Freeman, MD for Education, IRIS Software Groups, says, “At IRIS, we know educators care about one thing – improving the life chances of every student they teach. To keep this laser focus, they not only need integrated software that gives them real-time intelligence, but also the right support and training on how to extract the most value from the software.  

“Computeam is a long-term partner, and the decision to extend our partnership further is an important strategic one for IRIS Education. By collaborating even more closely with such a like-minded partner, we can ensure longevity and long-term success to schools and MATs.” 

Cris Cadby, Chief Commercial Officer, Computeam, says, “Adding IRIS’ education solutions to our portfolio enables us to continue providing considered and balanced advice, coupled with strategic planning, to help embed the best of breed solutions into trusts and schools. 

“For far too long schools have been tethered to on premise solutions from other MIS providers. Now is the perfect time for schools to re-evaluate what they do and how they do it and not just accept the status quo.”
