While working hard to keep our sewers physically blockage free, water companies often face a time-consuming, administrative burden when it comes to managing a FOG programme (sometimes taking as long as a full fatberg removal!).
Keeping our cities FOG free involves several different stakeholders. From individual water company teams to the contractors required, food businesses, service and maintenance contractors and even local councils. It’s a fine balance of communication, collaboration and efficiency.
Digital vs traditional
Reverting to processes where a FOG programme was mostly manual over digital, the administration and information sharing of such programmes can easily be seen as a burden. Introducing technology-led solutions to manage and support traditional programmes has enabled greater time saving and efficiency in our approach to these important tasks.
At SwiftComply, our cloud-based platform allows water utilities to instantly verify an FSEs’ level of compliance in FOG management. Water authorities no longer need to actively reach out to individual establishments to access information, instead this is readily available through the online platform. A safer and more efficient method that opens the way for a data-led approach to clearing FOG.
