IRIS Business Systems develops and designs state-of-the-art tailor-made software and data management solutions, as well as hardware support to suit the individual needs and particular preferences and expectations of a number of clients. We aim to truly understand the heart of our clients’ business, allowing for flexibility, individual nuances and practical excellence.

Impeccable customer service and personal support provide a solid foundation for all we do. We are based in George, South Africa, and service national and international clients since 1998.


Tailor-made user-friendly software solutions

IRIS offers a wide range of software, including iVMS (transportation and conveyance industries), iMS (industrial and manufacturing industries), Meterman (municipal metering), Plan Manager (municipal planning) and offers data analysis for intensive animal production systems. The aim is to offer a comprehensive solution to increase production efficiency.

Hardware solutions and anti-virus software support

IRIS provides hardware solutions (computers, notebooks, printers and monitors). We install and maintain company networks as well as sophisticated gateway servers, designed to monitor, filter and protect our clients against unauthorised access. IRIS provides ESET anti-virus software, a first level anti-virus system for complete network protection.

Data management solutions and business intelligence

IRIS assists clients to transform data into actionable information. Our software programmes enable clients to automatically move data between programmes (through integration with Pastel) and therefore prevent double posting, as well as to manipulate data for reports, graphs and dashboards. IRIS offers on-line technical assistance including remote back-ups.



We do not overpromise, but deliver what we promised. Honesty – and delivering on our commitments – is entrenched in everything we do.


We offer unconditional support and are available when problems arise. We are here to stay – dependable, reliable and stable in all we say and do.


We aim to truly understand your realities and challenges, and strive to respond with agility and ability – customisation and responsiveness is our forte.


As a socially responsible family business, we tread softly on people and the environment. We take our responsibility to add value seriously.
