Pros: It is very easy to use. It provides all the tools for setting it up to your business needs. You can let it do all the work for you or you can input certain information as your business requires.Customer service is excellent. Very knowledgeable. Quick answer.

Cons: I would like to be able to select several employees at the same time to review payslips or make changes to. I do understand this is not a software limitation rather a safety measure.

When reviewing several payslips for someone you have to click refresh each time you change to a different Week Pay... VERY VERY ANNOYING. I would like to be able to see each payslip as I move up or down without the need of refreshing each time.

Overall: Excellent Experience! It's the only software I ever used but I don't care about testing others. It gives me all the features I need, easy to use and when it gets complicated I can always, always, always rely on someone at IRIS immediately answering my phone call to rescue me.

Pros: Reasonably straight forward to use and enough help files to answer most questions as they occur.

Cons: Would like Iris to be aware of conflicts that Window Updates cause to their software, and respond quickly to limit the disruption to Payroll Software.

Overall: Need to have a faster response time to Tech Support Calls.

Pros: Easy to understand and use, same process each month, no surprises or complications

Cons: I can't extract a bulk monthly salary list and import into Natwest bankline, I have to enter 40 payments manually into a manual bulk list. The default is to automatically transfer 40 individual payments that would appear individually on the bank statement.

Overall: Auto enrolment is made simple and gives me no worries. Other 2 gripes are:

1 - I need to manully update IRIS with the % increases in the auto enrolment rates but this should no happen again after April 2019.

2 - it is costly but can't really blame IRIS for taking advantage of the situation as I would literally pay anything to get the AE job done

Pros: Payroll is fine on it's own but having been given the hard sell to take on Iris HR which supposedly integrates with payroll we are currently still, after months of problems, having issues. This has marred the whole Iris experience for us after years of problem free use of Payroll

Cons: It's lack of integration with HR even though it is now sold as a package

Pros: Easy to navigate and use, looks familiar to other business applications. It also keeps up to date with new legislationand ties in nicely with HMRC. Been administrating this software for a while now all seems well, but support it on hand if needs be!

Cons: This version is aimed and the small scale of businesses although other version are available to larger businesses. Price is starting to increase and other products which do the same are cheaper.

Pros: It's clear, straightforward and reliable. Simplifies what used to take me ages.

Cons: The reports could be a little more user friendly.

Overall: This software has saved me a lot of time and hassle. The year end process with IRIS means that my work load has halved at that time of year.

I rarely have any problems or queries - but if I do they are dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Pros: IRIS is easy to use and allows you to not be an expert in PAYE, maternity benefits etc as all are automatically calculated.

Cons: Updating to the latest version can be an issue as can be reverting back to a previously ended year.

Overall: Overall, not bad if you need a basic package. Don't expect too much.

Pros: Not as user friendly as many other payroll systems.

Updates often lead to crashes and inability to save in pdf format.

Expensive option for a small payroll.

Cons: Clunky, updates poor.

Not an enthusiast and I have been preparing payroll for five decades.

Overall: Virtually none!

Not over happy and shrink from the upselling this negative post will bring!
