Could 2022 be a breakthrough year for IRIS Software Group?

IRIS Software Group (IRIS) has been a stalwart of the UK software landscape, turning 40 in 2018 and currently heading towards 44 years in business. Over the years its form has changed but one thing has been consistent – a focus on the business-critical accountancy function. These days that core competency is augmented by capabilities in HR, Education and Payroll but the unifying theme is the provision of operational software and services to enhance compliance, efficiency and accuracy. 

Sitting quietly in the background, operational software is not one of the ‘bright and shiny’ tech areas but it is critical in enabling organisations to go about their business. Brexit, COVID, war, economic and political disruption across the world, in addition to challenges around climate change, spotlight the role of operational software in enabling business resilience. Against this background, IRIS has an opportunity to make breakthroughs in terms of its scale, portfolio (including integration and driving value from its many and ongoing acquisitions), go to market, expansion and market visibility.
