The Challenge

Managing payments can be a challenge when clients don’t use direct debit, don't pay promptly or use a variety of methods - cash, cheques or BACS. This makes the process of being paid disjointed, with different costs for each payment method. Further problems come with late payments from clients claiming they haven’t received your invoice or cheques getting lost in the post. These cause practices to spend even longer chasing overdue payments the situation only get worse. 

The Solution

IRIS Payments tackles these challenges, by enabling you to unite all payments methods for a fixed fee. Lost cheques become a thing of the past. You can receive payments simply, it’s all online, and money goes straight to your bank account. No hassle. 

Invoices uploaded on to an online secure portal which you and your clients can access 24/7. You can track the process easily and you can send reminders at the click of a button. Also set up configurable automated emails, thus cutting the time you’re wasting on chasing overdue payments.

Easy and convenient payments to improve cash flow   

A simple sign-up form that enables you to set up payments the same day rather than taking weeks, like it does usually with other solutions. Watch this short video to see how to sign up.  

IRIS Payments has an easy-to-follow payment workflow for clients; they receive an email to notify them that they need to pay their invoice. This video shows how.

Once notified by email they login to your secure client portal and click Pay to be taken through a secure card payment process, it’s just that easy!  


Seamless integration  

As your clients are already setup in IRIS Fees and IRIS OpenSpace, you seamlessly upload the invoice from IRIS Fees to the client in IRIS OpenSpace. Will automatically send the receipt into Fees so you can review all pending payments and post them to the ledger. This integration reduces the need for double entry as well as reducing transposition errors.
