OneLook Systems: Setting the bar for contractor compliance innovation globally

Not many people would decide to launch a new product during a global pandemic and potentially brink of a worldwide recession. To say it would be a challenge would be an understatement, but when you have an unrelenting determination then the task becomes a small bit easier. Determination is one thing that entrepreneurs Pat King and Brendan Griffin, co-founders of OneLook Systems, have in spades. The other things they have are a hugely desirable product, a focus on customer satisfaction, and excellent support.

Over the last 12 years, OneLook Systems have become a world-leading provider of innovative software solutions for managing contractor compliance at all stages of the contractor journey. With customers including Google, GSK, Diageo, Heineken, Nestlé, Biomarin, and AbbVie to name just a handful, the company has truly gone global. These customers span every corner of the earth, from California, the USA to Sydney, Australia. Not bad for a company with small beginnings in Cork, Ireland back in 2008.

Like any successful company, the basis for OneLook Systems was finding a solution to a problem.

“Brendan and I worked in pharmaceuticals, and we always noticed a huge line of contractors outside the Facility Manager’s office, to get their Permit to Work forms filled out and stamped,”
explains Pat.

“No worker could start onsite until these permits, which covered things like health and safety regulations, were issued. The whole process always took a long time; our idea was to make the process faster and easier by using the software.”

Launch of new COVID-19 safety solution, allowing companies to keep research, production & distribution lines operating

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, OneLook Systems has been playing a critical role in helping companies put in place additional COVID-19 controls for its large number of pharmaceutical, medical device, food and beverage, and technology manufacturers.

Pat King explains:
‘OneLook Systems has a large multinational client base, especially in the pharmaceutical sector. It’s imperative that clients such as Google, GSK, Sanofi, AbbVie, and Abbott, keep working as normal. Some of these companies are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 in researching and developing a vaccine. This also means that they may need to continue to bring employees that are currently working remotely, as well as outside contractors, onsite daily.

These companies must have absolute confidence that every single contractor or visitor has adhered to their COVID-19 standard operating procedures. Making sure they are adequately trained and are compliant with the new procedures before they arrive on-site is the key. Once they are on-site it is too late. This is where the software-based controls that OneLook Systems provides are proving so invaluable.’

As a result of the work it is doing to keep their clients’ workforces safe and healthy, OneLook Systems launched ‘SafePermit COVID-19’ which is being used by companies to ensure that they have COVID-19 specific controls in place. This is not just vital for companies while they stay operational but also as they prepare to reopen their distribution centers, manufacturing sites, and office locations.
