IRIS has won the IT Vendor of the Year award at International Accounting Bulletin Awards 2013

IRIS was recognised as the IT vendor that has made the most significant difference to the profession over the past year. An independent panel of judges looked at evidence of how the effective deployment of technology has reduced costs, improved quality and increased opportunities for growth in the last 12 months. International Accounting Bulletin, the leading publication for the global accountancy profession, presented the awards at a ceremony held at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in London yesterday. IRIS has pioneered the development of cloud-based products for the accountancy sector with the launch of IRIS OpenSpace online document sharing and electronic approval in 2012. This type of solution improves business continuity and client collaboration and provides other wide-ranging benefits, such as greater productivity and increased agility to enhance practice performance. In addition IRIS products lead the field in meeting HMRC’s industry requirements, for example iXBRL tagging far ahead of the mandatory deadline. IRIS customers have successfully submitted 2.7 million iXBRL documents to HMRC using IRIS software, more than any other suppler. Next month the HMRC requirement for Real Time Information (RTI) is the next big legislative change, affecting anyone who manages a payroll. We have anticipated this change and are the leading independent trainer for RTI with over 12,500 places booked and a complete range of RTI ready solutions for businesses, accountancy practices and payroll bureaus. IAB group editor for asset finance and accounting Fred Crawley said “This year’s awards attracted nominations from all parts of the world and competition was so stiff. We are delighted at the strength of applicants and the support these industry awards have received globally.” To find out how IRIS award winning solutions can benefit your business, call 0344 815 5727 today
