UP TO 85 practice franchisees are set to move onto Iris software.
New joiners to the Abacus Accountancy Network will deploy the Iris Practice Suite for their tax and accounts production functions in a three-year deal. Current network franchisees using software such as Sage and CCH are expected to move across to Iris.
“Iris Practice Suite has clear advantages over other products, not least around iXBRL compliance, which will be a major consideration for our practices over the coming months. We were also impressed with the level of customer support that IRIS provides and believe this will be of huge benefit to our franchisees,” said Abacus MD Steve Jackson.
Sion Lewis, sales director of Iris Accountancy Practice Solutions, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to work with and help new accountancy practices as they enter what is without doubt a challenging market place.”
