Helping water utilities protect over 50 million people
Our team includes former city employees, inspectors, and technologists passionate about helping regulators protect their communities and the environment.
Our journey so far
The SwiftComply story begins in Dublin in 2016, though our roots stretch back to 2008. At this time, our CEO Michael O’Dwyer was working as an engineer at Dublin City Council where he developed Europe’s first Fat, Oil, and Grease regulatory program to solve Dublin’s growing problems with excessive build-up of FOG.
Mick witnessed first-hand how the outdated regulatory processes and fragmented relationships between restaurant owners and regulators hindered virtually all clean-up efforts.
After achieving a staggering 95% fatberg reduction in Dublin, Michael set about creating a tool that would revolutionalize how cities around the globe collaborate with the foodservice industry to solve this problem.
It’s been a whirlwind so far and you can check out some of our highlights below.
At the start of 2020, we released our newest software solution, called SwiftComply Backflow. With SwiftComply Backflow, users can expect more flexibility, better customization, online report entry, enhanced annual reporting, more integrations, and all-round more user-friendly features.
We began 2019 with the acquisition of XC2 software. The acquisition enabled us to launch SwiftBackflow, backflow prevention software that seamlessly notifies, collects and verifies backflow tests reports on behalf of water providers. We also now offer reclaimed water and hydrant and valve testing modules.
Our rapidly expanding global customer base allowed us to open our first US office in sunny California. We also received an investment from an amazing group of financiers including Techstars Ventures, Howzat Partners and 415 Investments.
We simplify compliance
We work with cities that are looking to modernize their operations and future proof of their compliance programs against the changing regulatory landscape.

After spending the first part of her career working with satellites, rockets, and streaming video, Bobbi was looking to shake things up.
