IRIS Software Group (IRIS), one of the UK’s largest software companies, has announced the launch of IRIS Affinity – a world-class channel partner program to engage, enable and empower growth focused partners.

In a first for IRIS, the Affinity program caters for all types of partners including Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Software Resellers, banks, referral partners and other organisations looking to offer their customers industry leading capabilities from IRIS’ extensive range of cloud-based payroll, HR, finance, education and accountancy solutions.

To support partners in meeting this growing demand, IRIS’ Affinity program provides a comprehensive set of resources, training and tools so they can quickly and easily gain the knowledge and experience required to succeed and grow their business.

Partners also have the full backing of IRIS’ sales, marketing, support and learning resources within the IRIS Partner Portal, enabling them to capitalise on a rapidly growing software market.

“Partnering with IRIS helps our customers meet the changing preference of today’s workforce and we are excited for the journey beyond the horizon,” said Nick Adams, Vice President, EMEA at Globalization Partners.

“Our primary mission is to help companies to hire, onboard and manage employees anywhere in the world, with our AI-driven global employment platform. IRIS’ Fully Managed Payroll service enables us to offer organisations the tools they need to pay employees around the world securely, accurately and on time – whilst also taking care of legislative and reporting needs.”

Andrew Burton, Head of Partner Channel at IRIS Software Group comments, “We’re incredibly excited to launch the Affinity partner program. This is a unique opportunity for partners to access the full product range IRIS has to offer, along with our industry-leading infrastructure, expertise, training, attractive commercials, and cloud technology.”

“As part of the Affinity program, partners can take solutions to market faster. They will have access to a portfolio of market leading business solutions proven to meet compliance, back office and operational needs of small, medium and large enterprises. This program will help partners, customers and IRIS to succeed in the ever-changing software market. Together, we all grow.”
