Software company acquires online school management system

IRIS Software Group, the privately held software company, has acquired iSAMS, a fully integrated online school management system.

Set to grow the scope of the education portfolio for IRIS, iSAMS provides management information system (MIS) solutions to over 500 UK independent schools and over 500 international schools across 80 countries.

Kevin Dady, Executive Chairman of IRIS Software Group, says: “As part of our growth strategy, we continue to identify opportunities to expand both domestically and internationally.

“Domestically we are seeing a growing need for schools to not only move to a SaaS environment for finance, HR and payroll, but increase their engagement with parents, provide more detailed reporting and create more efficient, paperless administration systems.

“IRIS’ heritage, combined with its 11,000+ school customers, investment in cloud technology and sector expertise will help iSAMS in the next phase of its growth.”

Alastair Price, Managing Director of Northampton-headquartered iSAMS, says: “IRIS shares our vision for the next stage of growth. Its track record in the education market makes it the perfect partner.

“The support for management and its culture complements the next chapter of the iSAMS story. We are excited about IRIS investing into the business, reinforcing our commitment to service excellence for our customers worldwide.”
