IRIS Software Group acquires school management system
UK-based IRIS Software Group has acquired online school management system iSAMS, a move that sees it expand its education footprint and global reach.
iSAMS provides management information system (MIS) solutions to over 500 UK independent schools and over 500 international schools across 80 countries. IRIS says the acquisition aligns with its vision to be at the heart of school management, ensuring education leaders stay ahead of regulatory change; streamline school management by automating mundane and complex operational tasks to drive success; and engage employees, parents and pupils to exchange important information and build valuable relationships.
Kevin Dady, Executive Chairman of IRIS Software Group, said identifying opportunities to expand internationally is part of the company’s growth strategy.
“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’s 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,” he said.
iSAMS is a web-based management information system used by everyone involved in a school, from data administrators and staff to students and parents, with a range of reporting and engagement tools. These modules manage every aspect of administration to help schools run efficiently — including admissions, academic reporting and tracking, examinations, wellbeing, communication, HR, fee billing and accounting.
