IRIS to acquire Intex. By John Stokdyk
Tax and SME business software developer IRIS is to acquire Intex Software, developer of the EARNIE payroll system, for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Stockton-on-Tees, Intex has around 4,000 large business customers and will continue to develop and support the program under its new ownership. Having bought Freeway in 2001, IRIS will now control two of the country's best known payroll software programs.
"We will be retaining both the Intex EARNIE products and our own PAYE-Master range, ensuring that our customers are totally unaffected by this acquisition.
