In today’s post, we’re going to discuss restaurant compliance, technology, and how we can help you stay compliant – with minimal effort on your part.
Over the last few years, we have worked with thousands of foodservice businesses. We have seen, time and again, how a lack of clear instructions and digital resources leads to missed deadlines and avoidable fines.
And that’s only the tip of the <fatberg>. Without a robust compliance management plan, you are putting your business, customers, and community at risk.
Before you start to worry, it’s not all bad news. With the right technology and some planning upfront, you can quickly set up a compliance plan that is easy to manage.
Let’s dive right in,
Technology’s impact on foodservice compliance
I don’t need to tell you about the importance of technology in the foodservice industry. Whether you want to grow your business or manage your resources more efficiently, you need to have the right digital solutions in place.
Technology isn’t only good for business growth but can also insulate you when disaster strikes. This has never been more true as business owners struggle to deal with the fallout from COVID-19.
Despite the rapid adoption of new technology throughout the foodservice industry, a gap has remained. Business owners still don’t have access to any online tools to simplify compliance.
Where we fit in
In 2016, we asked ourselves a simple question; Why is it so hard to run a compliant business? Since then, our mission has been to make it easy for business owners to follow city regulations.
We have worked with regulators and business owners to create digital solutions that achieve two core objectives.
- To power collaboration between local regulators, businesses, and vital service providers
- To automate the most time-consuming aspects of compliance, while also providing business owners with relevant and useful information.
Our digital solutions are all designed to take the guesswork out of compliance.
Report your compliance with SwiftComply
SwiftComply was the first tool we built to help city officials and food business owners collaborate more efficiently and transparently.
With SwiftComply, you can upload your compliance service documents directly to the city database. To complete the process, you add details of your service, along with a photo of your work order. Your service provider will give you this before they leave.
Uploading a digital record gives your regulator a real-time view of compliance in your community. With this information, they can identify high-risk areas and address any issues before disaster strikes.
Providing a digital compliance report also reduces the number of on-site inspections the compliance team has to carry out. Saving you and them valuable time.

SwiftQuote is a new platform that we released this year. In its simplest terms, SwiftQuote is an online directory of approved service providers.
The goal is to simplify compliance by helping business owners find and book service providers in just a few clicks.
With SwiftQuote, you can request free compliance quotes from approved service providers in your area. You can then use other reviews, price, and availability to select your favorite.
But that’s not the best part.
SwiftQuote integrates with SwiftComply to ensure that you are always in compliance when you book through the app.
What does this mean? Simply put, you won’t ever have to upload any compliance documents. Once you book the service, you’re all set.
