Telling a Client Story Part 2: Iris Works



This Thanksgiving week we are thankful to tell the story of Iris Works (“Iris”).  Iris is an all-in-one studio management software made for photographers by photographers.  Iris’ client management tools were built for the creative in a simple system. Iris gives photographers the ability to succeed as small business owners; thriving and continually growing their business, without causing the headache that many systems cause. Most recently, Iris released a fully integrated online booking platform – allowing photographers to book clients online, collect payment, and automate contracts.

A photographer who uses Iris’ platform says it best: “Iris Works saved my sanity!  When a program can give you back time, it’s priceless. I never thought I needed a client management system until I found Iris Works, and I am forever grateful for it!”  On the note of saving time and sanity, we interviewed Iris’ Founder & CEO Meredith Gradle about her experience as a FullStack client. In the below video, Meredith speaks to how FullStack helps her to balance being a full-time mother and a full-time CEO, and offer her employees great benefits:

“FullStack helps me to be a fulltime CEO and business owner as well as a full-time parent.  And honestly I wouldn’t know how to do this job without it. It gives me the flexibility when I come home I can actually be at home and be present with my kids, and I don’t have to worry about all the other things.  It also gives my staff benefits that I otherwise would not be able to offer them.”

Here are a few questions we asked Meredith and her responses:

Q: How have FullStack’s services helped you and Iris Works?

A: Being a startup in the technology space means we have to offer more than just a salary to attract talent. The ability to offer benefits, and a full range of benefits at that, means we can hire the right people for the job. As the CEO, my time is already stretched to the limit, so having FullStack handle all of the paperwork, benefits, paychecks, and more is well worth the investment.

Q: What do you appreciate about FullStack’s service offerings?

A: I greatly appreciate having what feels like a full service HR rep for our company. I can ask questions, seek advice, and even direct my staff to our representative when needed.

Q: What have you liked about your interactions with the FullStack team?  How have we been helpful to you?

A: Interactions have all been positive – my staff appreciates the FullStack team, as well as myself. The advice and input when it comes to employee needs is very helpful.

We at FullStack are thankful for Meredith and Iris Works as a part of the FullStack client community!  If you are a photographer or know a photographer to refer, visit Iris’ website for more details!
