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

IRIS Software Group (IRIS) and iCT4 are today announcing a new partnership which will enable iCT4’s education customers across the UK 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 relationships, IRIS and iCT4 will provide schools and trusts with 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.

“iCT4 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.”

Glyn Pascoe, Managing Director, iCT4 Limited, says, “At iCT4 we view our partnership with IRIS Education as another significant development in our quest to transform the classroom through technology.  Our schools and MATs trust us to deliver best-of-breed solutions that make a tangible, positive impact on school life, whether in the classroom or outside of it. IRIS Education’s suite of tools aligns with this perfectly.”
