What our users say.

"The delivered product has exceeded our expectations by catering for so many complex issues, and is providing significant time savings allowing focus to be exception driven. User response to the system has been very positive. While post live support required has been minimal, the response time to all questions raised has been excellent – and gives us great confidence for the future"

FTSE 250 Asset Manager

"We chose iRecs as it’s an affordable reconciliation system built by operations guys with first hand experience of the issues faced and not a system built by tech guys with no operations experience"

London Hedge Fund

"The implementation of iRecs has made a meaningful contribution to our control environment, improving the productivity of reconciliations between internal systems, administrator and counterparties in a cost effective manner. The WWFS team were both pragmatic and helpful throughout the process."
