By using a hosted solution, we are able to reduce IT costs, free up the IT team for more strategic work and can also access our financial management information wherever we are working, UK or abroad. It’s a win-win situation.

YO! Sushi, the UK’s favourite sushi restaurant chain which delivers a slice of urban Tokyo to sushi lovers worldwide, has chosen IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions to host and service its IRIS Exchequer accounting software, as well as the IRIS Exchequer Document Management System.
YO! Sushi serves over four million customers each year and is famous for its fast delivery of Japanese sushi to customers via a conveyor belt system. In a move to make YO! Sushi’s back office system as efficient as its front-end dining experience, the restaurant chain has chosen IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions to host and manage its core IT applications.
The iconic brand has been using IRIS Exchequer to maintain tight financial control since its business began back in 2001 and also makes use of the IRIS Exchequer Document Management System which has enabled YO! Sushi to digitise and streamline its existing document processes and reduce its paper usage.
By evolving to IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions, all of YO! Sushi’s IRIS Exchequer software modules and integrated document management systems are securely delivered as a service over the internet which can be accessed anywhere, anytime.
The move will see YO! Sushi reduce the total cost of ownership for its IT systems as data and applications will be hosted in IRIS Exchequer’s secure datacentre, minimising both hardware and software costs in the process. IRIS Exchequer will also take responsibility for backing up YO! Sushi’s data and key services, installing security patches and anti-virus control and managing license version control, all of which is backed by a ‘world class’ service level agreement to ensure both quality and consistency of service.
Marx Swanepoel, Senior Management Accountant at YO! Sushi UK, comments: “IRIS Exchequer’s accounting software has been a central facet of our financial management systems for more than a decade. Given the positive experiences we have had throughout this time, it was a natural evolution for us to continue to work with them and make the move to IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions. By using a hosted solution, we are able to reduce IT costs, free up the IT team for more strategic work and can also access our financial management information wherever we are working, UK or abroad. It’s a win-win situation and my accounting team have been extremely pleased with both the transition and the service we receive from the IRIS Exchequer team.”
IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions enables YO! Sushi to access key applications anywhere, anytime via an internet connection. It works across a variety of browsers – including Microsoft Windows Explorer, Firefox and Safari – and across a number of devices, including iPads and smartphones, enabling staff to securely access vital business information either from the office, home or when they are on the move visiting restaurant sites.
Paul Sparkes, Product Director for IRIS Exchequer, adds: “Through our hosted solution we’re changing the way that businesses manage both their finances and their IT infrastructure.
Hardware can quickly become outdated and software can be ‘resource-hungry’ but by using a hosted solution, organisations can hand this responsibility over to someone else to manage, leaving them to get on with running their core business while reducing IT costs, mitigating risks and increasing access to data on the move.”
IRIS Exchequer Hosted Solutions is a fully managed service that is available through a monthly, per user fee, removing capital outlay and enabling efficient budgeting.
