Accountancy practice software vendor creates online bookkeeping product, Iris OpenBooks, to sell to its smaller clients

One of the largest accountancy software providers, Iris, has launched an online bookkeeping product accountancy firms can sell to its SME clients.

Iris OpenBooks was launched today and allows accountantcy firms to receive real-time information on its client's financial position by allowing access to information through the internet.

The new software costs approximately 15 per client per month and can be bought as a standalone product today. However, it will take a further 30 days to be fully integrated with existing on-premise Iris technology.

Phill Robinson managing director of Iris accountancy practice solutions, said: ?Bookkeeping software is used by many small businesses, but is often difficult to use or shrouded in jargon. Others may be stuck using spreadsheets.

"IRIS OpenBooks is a no-nonsense easy to use, jargon free web-based solution that is designed to help small businesses get control of their finances, whilst also giving the same real-time picture to their accountant.?
