Exchanging sensitive and confidential information with clients 
is an important part of your daily routine, with a number of challenges:

Email is insecure. Royal Mail is slow and has ever increasing costs.
Consumer file sharing sites are complex to manage for multiple clients, 
and do not always comply with UK data protection requirements.

IRIS OpenSpace is a safesimple and secure collaborative tool for accountancy practices and clients 
to share documents with each other and get client approval electronically.
