Iris ventures into web services

Financial software suppliers have teamed up with CI-Net to provide accountants with access to technology over the internet

Iris, one of the UK’s largest accountancy practice software providers, is to
offer its technology over the internet.

The IT company will offer its IRIS10 product over the internet or in the
cloud. It has teamed up with CI-Net the web technology specialist.

Mark Ellis, director of services, IRIS accountancy practice solutions, said:
“Looking after their IT set up is a growing challenge for accountancy practices.
They’re using increasingly sophisticated technology that is becoming critical to
the service they offer to clients.”

“By providing the option to take our software as a managed service offering
via ‘the cloud’, we’re hoping to take a big chunk of the IT management hassle
out of our customers’ hands – so they can focus on core business,” he added.

CI-Net is also hosting the Microsoft Office suite, Microsoft Exchange for
email and other desktop applications which will be available to Iris customers.

The company will look after the security, maintenance, upgrades, backup and
licence management tasks for Iris.
