IRIS Forms simplifies and structures the inputting and transfer of military information, orders and reports, using simple-to-deploy interoperability standards. The software is available in two versions: as a stand alone application and as a server-client solution, known as IRIS WebForms.

Both versions ensure consistent data entry and transfer as the basis for rapid, reliable and often automated distribution of key information throughout the organisation or unit in question.

The end-user functionality of IRIS Forms and IRIS WebForms is similar and both support dynamic deployment of forms according to military standards for data entry or viewing. The difference is in deployment: IRIS Forms is a stand-alone application installed on individual computers, and IRIS WebForms is a client-server solution with a server-only installation and thin web based clients downloaded from the server via a web browser.
