IRIS gets close up and SaaS-y with accountants

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Video IRIS Software and Services produces packaged apps that half the UK's accountants use. But continually updating them as regulations change is a pain - so why not provide its software as a service? That's the plan that Accountancy Division CEO Phill Robinson explains to The Reg.

Phill talks about why a stable, profitable software house would want to change the way it does business. In this case study he tells us how he's going to convince 60,000 accountants that it's a good idea.

He also gives us his opinion on the future of SaaS - a subject, as a former CMO of Salesforce.com, he might know something about.
