We’ve implemented robust security protocols to safeguard sensitive data and ensure compliance with industry regulations. From encryption to access controls, every aspect of the platform is designed with security in mind. Additionally, our team works closely with regulatory bodies to stay ahead of emerging compliance requirements and adapt our platform accordingly. With GoCanvas, businesses can trust that their data is secure and compliant, allowing them to focus on their core operations without worrying about potential risks.

Viyas: Job Site Management (JSM) involves streamlining day-to-day operations of frontline workers with back-office tasks, enhancing scheduling, planning, time management, quality assurance, invoicing, and reporting. GoCanvas is shifting towards JSM to help blue-collar industries succeed beyond just forms, focusing on connecting frontline operations with the back office for improved efficiency.
