Share

IRIS Software Group, one of the UK’s largest privately held software companies is today announcing it has acquired iSAMS, a leading, fully integrated, online school management system.

Set to grow the scope of the education portfolio for IRIS, iSAMS is closely aligned with the Group’s vision to be the most trusted provider of mission critical software and services. iSAMS provides management information system (MIS) solutions to over 500 UK independent schools and over 500 international schools across 80 countries.

iSAMS complements IRIS’ objective to be at the heart of school management, ensuring education leaders stay ahead of regulatory change; streamline school management by automating mundane and complex operational tasks to drive success; and engage employees, parents and pupils to exchange important information and build valuable relationships.

Kevin Dady, Executive Chairman of IRIS Software Group says, “As part of our growth strategy, we continue to identify opportunities to expand both domestically and internationally.

“Domestically we are seeing a growing need for schools to not only move to a SaaS environment for finance, HR and payroll, but increase their engagement with parents, provide more detailed reporting and create more efficient, paperless administration systems.

“IRIS’ heritage, combined with its 11,000+ school customers, investment in cloud technology and sector expertise will help iSAMS in the next phase of its growth.”

Alastair Price, Managing Director of iSAMS comments, “IRIS shares our vision for the next stage of growth. Its track record in the education market makes it the perfect partner. The support for management and its culture complements the next chapter of the iSAMS story. We are excited about IRIS investing into the business, reinforcing our commitment to service excellence for our customers worldwide.”

iSAMS is a web-based management information system used by everyone involved in a school, from data administrators and staff, to students and parents with a range of reporting and engagement tools. These modules manage every aspect of administration to help schools run efficiently – including admissions, academic reporting and tracking, examinations, wellbeing, communication, HR, fee billing and accounting.

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced overall survival (OS) results from the Phase 3 MAIA (NCT02252172) study showing the addition of DARZALEX® ▼(daratumumab) to lenalidomide and dexamethasone (D-Rd) resulted in a statistically significant survival benefit over lenalidomide and dexamethasone (Rd) alone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) who were ineligible for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) and were treated to progression.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing and will be presented as a late-breaking abstract during the EHA Virtual Congress (Abstract #LB1901). The prespecified interim analysis for OS found that after a median follow-up of nearly five years (56.2 months), a 32 percent reduction in the risk of death was observed in the D-Rd treatment arm vs. Rd arm.1 Median OS was not reached in either arm [hazard ratio (HR): 0.68, 95 percent confidence interval (CI),

New Phase 3 Study Results Show IMBRUVICA ® (ibrutinib)-Based Combination Regimen as an All-Oral Fixed-Duration Treatment Demonstrated Superior Progression-Free Survival in Adult Patients with Previously Untreated Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia12.6.2021 09:00:00 CEST | Press release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced primary results from the pivotal Phase 3 GLOW study (NCT03462719) evaluating fixed-duration IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) plus venetoclax (I+V) compared to chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (Clb+O) for first-line treatment of elderly or unfit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The study demonstrated superior progression-free survival (PFS) of a once-daily, all-oral, fixed-duration regimen of I+V versus Clb+O as first-line treatment of CLL; the study also showed improved duration of remission and significantly improved depth of remission.1 With I+V, undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD) in peripheral blood (PB) was sustained by 85 percent of patients one year after end of treatment.1 The safety and tolerability profile of I+V was consistent with CLL treatment in an older population with comorbidities.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing an

The Secure Communities Forum, a global collaboration of security professionals, has convened a leading panel of experts to discuss how behavioural science can impact positive social cohesion, build on the concept of positive citizenship, and encourage positive individual behaviours. The virtual event was attended by 134 people from 18 countries. The Secure Communities Forum convened the webinar in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

She said: “Behavioural science is about setting people up for success and breaking through the noise. Information isn't enough to change behaviour, the decision-making context matters. “People don’t always act in their own long-term best interests,
