IRIS Engage: Powerful internal communications for your business

Now more than ever, you need a convenient and cost-effective way of staying in touch with your team.  

With new remote working processes and staff furloughed until further notice, employees probably have questions about the future: How long will the business be closed? How can I work efficiently from home? When will things be back to normal?   

While you can’t predict the future, you can control the business messages and information employees receive. To keep staff updated on the latest company news, clear, concise internal communications are vital.  

With an abundance of engagement software expertise in our remit, IRIS Software Group is well placed to deliver an internal communications platform to empower your business during these most uncertain times.  

Introducing IRIS Engage  

IRIS Engage integrates seamlessly with IRIS HR Professional, enabling you to send texts, emails and online forms to staff from a single user-friendly platform.   

Strategically plan employee communications by segmenting staff into groups, teams and individuals, ensuring the right people receive the right information when it matters most.  

To reduce time-consuming admin, messages can also be scheduled in advance; you can also utilise a collection of pre-written templates on subjects including furlough, legislation changes, HR policies and procedures.  

All your communications in one place  

When you need to reach staff quickly, text and email are a sure-fire way of sending important messages directly into staff hands.  

You need to be confident that all staff, including those furloughed, can access accurate and timely important news and information. IRIS Engage includes a company-branded microsite, providing a centralised location to host company resources  (i.e. documentation on payroll, furlough, HR policies and plans for getting back to normal). Adding content to the microsite is quick and easy, offering a single touch-point for staff, wherever they may be.  

Online forms functionality also empowers you to collect and report on staff responses. With a bespoke form builder, you can request staff data, collect feedback, securely store and report on information quickly and easily online – simple!  

Stay in control  

IRIS Engage provides a handy overview of inbound messages, as well as a complete history of communications sent. In instances of incorrect staff contact details, the system alerts you to message failures, so you know who has and hasn’t received texts.  

Flexible permissions can also be set for different users, providing total control and the ability to grant access to relevant stakeholders.  

Cost-effective communications  

IRIS Engage is new functionality to IRIS HR Professional and is therefore completely free to switch on. With 1000 free SMS messages available upon go live, you’ll ready to hit the ground running instantly. Text credit bundles are available at a competitive price, as and when required.
