This year has been a year like no other, and as we head into 2021 we take a look at the top ten ways legal, compliance, finance and tax professionals use BRYTER to automate processes and deliver knowledge digitally.

With BRYTER, companies can create a bespoke digital Return-to-Work Navigator that allows them to assess which requirements apply, providing potentially infected employees with information and reducing the need for onsite health screenings. Conducting self-serve health assessments decreases the time it takes to assess hundreds of employees onsite making the process more efficient. Tracking results in real-time creates the ability to identify potential health risks early. But this crisis is ever-evolving, and regulations change almost on a weekly basis. BRYTER’s no-code platform enables business professionals to visualise rules, and update information easily and quickly to reflect changes in governmental guidance and company requirements.
