    Simply log-in via your laptop, phone, or other digital device to fire up essentials like:

    • Communication apps like Microsoft Teams or other video conferencing solutions

    There’s a lot to be said for keeping things simple.

    With IRIS Anywhere, your team can log-in and access the same system – from the programs they use to the way their screen is set up – from wherever they happen to be. By combining flexibility with familiarity, remote working becomes even more efficient.

    Plus, it’s not just your programs, files and settings that are unplugged. IRIS Anywhere’s cloud-based phone system allows you make and receive phone calls from anywhere, with consultative transfer, music-on-hold and cloud voicemail.

    • Access tools like Microsoft Teams from whatever internet-ready device you’re using

    And if you’re not interested in hosting applications on servers (or you’re happy with your current system), you can now opt for an end-point management solution. IRIS Cloud365+ utilises Microsoft Intune to ensure that your laptops, PCs and all devices are safe, secure and always up to date.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Learn more about IRIS Anywhere and how it can support your accountancy firm to work remotely.  

During busy periods, such as tax season or year-end, you’re likely to need all the support and power you can get to ensure you can work efficiently and effectively.

That’s exactly what you get with IRIS Anywhere. Wherever you are and however you’re accessing your desktop, you log into a system that looks identical to what you use on your office PC.

As long as you’re using a suitable internet-ready device, you can access your desktop – this includes your files, systems settings, accounting software, tools (e.g. Microsoft Office), conference

Just because you and your teams aren’t in the same room together, doesn’t mean you can’t connect or collaborate as effectively.

The same goes for customers; with the right system in place, your customers should feel like you’re right there with them, providing solutions and resolving challenges side-by-side.

With IRIS Anywhere, you can use a range of powerful communication tools to connect with colleagues and clients wherever you’re logged in from, including:

  • Messaging, calling and hosting interactive video conferences via Microsoft Teams
  • Sharing and amending files in real-time with OneDrive
  • Remote, cloud-based telephone services (with consultative transfer, cloud voicemail, and more).

With so much sensitive information being shared across platforms and channels, it’s essential remote desktop solutions defend against cybersecurity threats.

  • Remote wiping capabilities (if devices are lost or stolen)
  • Capacity to restrict who can forward, copy, and print sensitive information
  • Remote security risk monitoring by the IRIS Anywhere team.
