iRiS uses the latest development technologies, including HTML 5 for maximum platform reach and native iOS and Android applications for optimum user experience, all built around the robust Microsoft back-end framework. iRiS' sophisticated Language Manager supports virtually any language, offering a truly global solution for the hospitality industry.
iRiS Manager is a hosted, centralised solution that manages translations, content, communications and reporting across all of our apps.
It solves the problem of managing multiple applications across a variety of touch-points within the hotel and it gives operators full control of the apps from any location and on any device via a web browser. iRiS Manager is essentially the framework which supports and powers all of our applications and utilizes the reliability and stability of Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure hosting solutions.
