IRIS Software Group (IRIS), one of the UK’s largest providers of specialist education software, has acquired Every, a Leeds-based compliance and HR management solution provider for the education sector.
The move marks the next stage in IRIS’ mission to rapidly expand its IRIS Education HR software offering, at a time when many schools and MATs (Multi-Academy Trusts) need seamless, integrated solutions.
Simon Freeman, MD of IRIS Education, says: “We are delighted to welcome Every to the IRIS family.
“This is another step towards creating the most comprehensive end-to-end software offering for schools and trusts – one that takes the pain out of important day to day activities, and ensures they can focus on what matters most, teaching.
“We’re very excited about continuing to support Every’s growth and market leading people and products to benefit both existing and new customers.”
Ian Bond, founder of Every, says: “It’s now more important than ever to make sure education professionals have the tools to make their jobs more manageable, empower them with better decision making, and identify more efficient ways of working.
“Joining the IRIS family allows us to build on what we’ve achieved to date and add greater value to our customers. We are excited about the future with IRIS and reinforcing our commitment to service excellence for our customers.”
